Let's to stay connected
In the fight against Covid-19, we all need to maintain 'social distancing'. For now, we need social distance, but as much as we can, we want to reduce social isolation. Here's a variety of ways you can stay connected with others. Some are obvious, others less so. try a few!
Pick-up the phone/ mobile and call someone. You've got time now!
Use either text/SMS or WhatsApp.
It's free, arrives immediately, and is good for maintaining social distance.
Who doesn't like to receive mail? 2nd class stamps, with their longer delivery time, are potentially safer to use. Be careful to maintain social distance when purchasing stamps.
