【「外出自粛」のガイドライン/ Guidelines for Quarantining 】
As the COVID-19 continues to spread, stay-at-home and self-isolation are in order.
But since there aren’t any clear guidelines on how to properly carry out quarantine, sometimes people wonder and say “isn’t playing outside in open air okay?” or “my kids miss their friends. Aren’t playdates allowed?”. So, we found this illustration by a dermatologist which went viral on Twitter, clearly giving us do’s and don’ts of social distancing! (translation at bottom of page)
【英訳】Are you really “social distancing”?
What “quarantine” means from a medical perspective:
Public perception of quarantine:
① To go shopping for groceries and supplies is OK.
② Playing in a park is OK, since it’s open-air, right?
What quarantine medically means:
③ People lined up at drug stores to buy masks
→ Stop. To be in a line has higher risk than not having a mask.
→ should be done by one person with strongest immune system in the family: most healthy person of the day
→ go shopping only as necessary
→ take a shower immediately after returning home (or be ready to)
→ playground equipment/handrails have infectious risk
→ if you meet a friend, chatting with them within 2 meter distance is a risk
→it’s difficult for kids to keep “2 meters distance”… don’t take risks!
→meeting and chatting with someone outside of your family within 2 meter is a risk factor!
Kids: can they hang out together?
If children get the virus, they’ll be isolated and will have to fight the disease alone. We know they miss their friends, but let’s refrain from letting them meet with one another to keep them safe and alive.
