MARLBOROUGH- During a press conference on Monday, Marlborough’s Director of Public Health reminded residents to continue practicing social distancing. That means, keeping a distance of six feet between yourself and others throughout the day. COVID-19 is much more contagious than the seasonal flu, so keeping a safe distance from others will hopefully stop the rapid spread of the disease. To control the disease, social distancing is a must.
To help, try calling or texting friends or loved ones instead of visiting them. As an extra precaution, Gov. Charlie Baker recommends staying out of spaces with more than 25 people. But the good news, pets cannot catch coronavirus. So when it comes to your furry friends, no need to distance yourself.
