According to the Washington Post, covid-19 is spreading quickly, but it can be slowed if people practice “social distancing” by avoiding public spaces and generally limiting their movement. The best way to prevent more cases of coronavirus in the next few weeks, many experts think, is to eliminate potential opportunities for spreading, by preventing infected people from coming in close contact with healthy ones. Whether it means moving to online school or canceling concerts and other fun events, right now it is safest for people to stay home. Social distancing can be inconvenient, disruptive, isolating, frustrating, etc., but it can also be a great time to connect with Students and Professionals online.

You can ask any questions you may have about covid-19 and how this outbreak may affect the job market, summer internship opportunities or life in general.
