The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives and routines of people all over the world. However, while most of us are staying home to slow the spread, there are many who wake up each day and face this pandemic head on. This HRI series will provide you with a new tip each day this week to help you find ways to support essential workers during the pandemic. Today’s tip is to show your support to essential workers by staying home.
Perhaps the most impactful way to support essential workers during the pandemic is to stay home and follow all social distancing guidelines. When we stay home, we help to keep everyone safe by preventing or slowing the spread of the virus in our communities. However, you are also sending a message to the essential worker(s) in your life – a message that you value and respect what they do, and that you will do your part by staying home and abiding by social distancing guidelines.
By staying home, you are not only helping to keep your community healthy, you are also supporting the people who do not have the choice to stay home.
