Social distancing can be lonely and difficult, even in the wake of a virus as serious as COVID-19. However, now it’s more important than ever to keep your distance from friends and loved ones — and opt to connect with them virtually instead.

When you’re craving a hug during these next couple of months (and trust us — we get it), watch the clip below to remind yourself of the power and positive impact of social distancing. This scene from “My Cabbage,” a Season 5 episode of the medical comedy Scrubs, shows that even seemingly innocent contact with others can cause much more harm than good.

Remember: This will all be over one day! Stay home, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and practice social distancing as much as possible. Doing your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 is imperative and will save lives.
