Calling social distancing what it really is...

Maintaining at least 6 feet of space between yourself and another person...they call it social distancing. I wasn't even being social in the first place! I'm going to the grocery store to get some food, and they want me to adhere to "social distancing". Call it what it really is! "Infection-prevention distance", the "germ reduction zone", the "safety zone", the "I-don't-want-to-get sick zone". You put the word "social" followed by a word that makes people feel restricted- as in "distancing", you are bound to get a few rebels. They should've labeled it something else. This is more than just a social issue -for some it could mean life or death.
