During this difficult time around the world, we are being asked to self-quarantine and practice social distancing. Given concerns about the spread of COVID-19 many are choosing to proactively avoid public places, even if they are not sick. This is what the CDC defines as “social distancing”, or the act of avoiding locations or situations where close contact with others may occur. Unlike those who have self-quarantined, these individuals have not been exposed to the virus and are simply attempting to reduce risk of infection.
Many businesses have shut down, restricted access to customers, and cut hours. There are also companies that have transitioned into having their employees work from home. It's no easy task working from home, but there are tools that could make things easier.
Besides the normal text and email, there is no need for a six-foot distance with these software's.
