It's a term we hear more and more: "social distancing". But what does this really mean? Is this the politically correct way of saying "hey get away from me with your germs"? Can't we just say "back off" or will that hurt people's feelings? So now it's "please practice social distancing". Seems awkward, but ok.

"Social Distancing is the practice of reducing close contact between people to slow the spread of infections or diseases"
