While social distancing and self-isolation might seem like an individual act, it actually benefits your neighbors on the whole.
Here are some other ways you can help your community combat the coronavirus.
Donate money to a food bank, as some might need to rely harder on social services.
If you know someone is unable to leave their home due to being in a high-risk population, offer to pick up groceries or prescriptions.
Stay on top of the news and become involved with neighborhood groups and local community organizations, sharing your advice and expertise where necessary.
Also, use apps to stay in touch from afar.
And if you’ve already got a month’s worth of food and supplies stocked up, stop hoarding.
You’ll be fine.
Panic shopping only feeds fear.
