Though I am not prone to social panic or political hysteria, I am prone to respiratory illness & nearly died twice from the flu. Or at least it felt like I was dying. Social distancing & isolation seems a wise tactic to get through this pandemic, however long it lasts, but for most seniors, social isolation is already a problem. You just have to remember that temporary isolation beats dying. You can get a lot of things done, like catching up on reading, listening to music, dancing with the door jamb, decluttering, or spending more time on social media talking to each other.
