People are more often in public, the term “physical distancing” is more prominent  (instead of social distancing) is being used to reinforce the need to stay at least 6 feet from others, as well as wearing face masks. Basically “social distancing” is a term that was used earlier in the pandemic as many people stayed home to help prevent spread of the virus.

Wear a Face Mask when you  are not in your home and whenever you are around people who are not members of your household. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others. Avoid crowded places, particularly indoors, and events that are likely to draw crowds.

It is always better to maintain social distancing to avoid larger crowds by way of
