As cases of COVID-19 continue to spread, people are taking precautions like social distancing more seriously than ever.
Social distancing, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), is the practice of maintaining at least three feet of distance between you and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. It’s just one measure being suggested to protect against the spread of the highly contagious new coronavirus.
Many people — even health officials — have started using handshake alternatives. And France has even told citizens to stop participating in “bise,” the very French practice of kissing each other on the cheek.
