With social distancing is full swing amidst the Covid-19 outbreak in the United States, stars are getting creative when it comes to keeping themselves and their families safe. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beal took social distancing to a new level, however.
How Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beal Practice Social Distancing
Instead of holing up in their home, the two stars took their family to a cabin in the mountains. Leaving no family member behind, Timberlake posted a picture to his Instagram account of his wife and their dog in the snow. In the background were snowy mountains covered in trees.
Timberlake then encouraged his fans to stick together and help one another during this crisis. Also on his Instagram account, Timberlake gave some ideas for helping in this desperate time of need.
Why Social Distance?
Studies have shown that social distancing can decrease the spread of this virus. Coronavirus spreads through droplets that can travel nearly six feet, making the social distancing rule to stay at least six feet away from others.
The ultimate goal is to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 and to keep healthy people away from the sick. If a healthy person were to inhale or touch the droplets, they can become infected or will be contributing to the spread of coronavirus.
Not only can social distancing decrease the rate at which it is spreading, but it also gives health care workers and hospitals the chance to catch up. One of the reasons so many are dying from COVID-19 is because hospitals are already overwhelmed with other cases. By slowing the spread, these facilities won’t have so many people rushing for help at one time.
How You Can Do Your Part
The rest of us have to do our part to lessen the rapid spread of COVID-19, too. Since the stars can’t do it on their own, the rest of us should follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. The guidelines include:
- avoiding groups of people
- maintaining at least 6 feet distance from others
Other things you can do to help decrease the spread of COVID-19 include:
- wash your hands often
- avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes
- stay home if you feel even slightly sick
- cover your cough or sneeze
- clean and disinfect anything that is frequently touched
While the entire country participates in social distancing, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beal have taken it to a whole new level. Their quarantine to a cabin in the mountains will likely prove to be effective for social distancing.
