Together Quad Cities

A Coalition Response to COVID-19

Social Distancing

  • Keep at least 6-feet between you and others. For many adults, that is approximately their arm span.
  • Avoid shaking hands or hugging as a social greeting.
  • Consider avoiding social gatherings/community events where you cannot maintain a 6-foot space between you and others.
  • It is nearly impossible in large group settings to maintain recommended social distancing. As a result, Quad City organizations are encouraged to postpone social gathering/community events of 10 or more people.
  • Consider shopping at non-peak hours and take advantage of delivery or pick-up services with retailers.
  • Follow the visitor guidance of hospitals and nursing homes/assisted living centers.
  • If you have traveled to an area where there is known community-spread, self-isolate for 14 days when you get home.
  • Stay at home if you are feeling sick.
  • If you are an older adult, or have an underlying health condition, stay home as much as you can.
