Here are some rules for social distancing that a lot of people don’t seem to grasp:

1. DON’T GO TO YOUR FRIENDS HOUSE. PERIOD.

That means you can’t have board game nights even if you’re sat at other ends of the table. No coffee dates. Don’t get together to sing some tunes.
2. DON’T GO TO CROWDED PARKS FOR WALKS.

Places like Bowring Park are on wheels so go somewhere more isolated if you can. As a wheelchair user I’d someday like to go for a stroll there b/c it’s accessible but I can’t because you & your army of friends are there feeding the ducks.
3. RUN ESSENTIAL ERRANDS AS FEW TIMES AS POSSIBLE.

Don’t keep going to Dominion just because it’s open and you want to have a yarn with strangers in the produce aisle. Go out as few times as you can and only run essential errands. Try to do curbside grocery pickup if possible.
This all sucks and it’s super inconvenient because of course we all want to see our friends and families but the longer you keep skirting these social distancing protocols the longer someone like me who is immunocompromised will have to be in full quarantine.
Please know that every time you post things indicating that you aren’t taking social distancing seriously I am taking it incredibly personally and throwing another log into the pit of fiery rage that’s burning in my stomach.
Some people still have to go to work and don’t have the privilege of practicing social distancing and staying in their homes so let’s please follow these steps and take all of the precautions we can to help keep those people as safe as possible.
This seems to have gone viral in the US which is great but I really wish it would go viral in #Newfoundland because people here need to stay the f*ck home.

A message to strangers on the internet: stop asking me if the specific thing you’re doing that clearly goes against social distancing is okay. If it’s a thing that involves not staying home or social distancing that doesn’t NEED to be done then don’t do it.
Okay one last note: I am not telling anyone that they can’t hang out with their friends virtually using the internet. Yes, you can have skype coffee dates or play virtual board games or D&D or whatever you want to do together online.
I don’t have a sound cloud so this podcast by fellow chronically ill human @emilyvgordon and @kumailn with proceeds going to charity is the thing I’m going to recommend:
