The Washington Post article/visuals about isolation vs. social distancing and how it affects the spread of a disease. The most significant element to me was how clearly it demonstrated social distancing as a collective behavior and how slowly the disease spreads in that environment. 

Second best: We need to behave as if we already have the disease if we want to limit its spread.

So, knowing how important it is to stay home, how do we keep our sanity and our humanity?

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

What are acceptable practices for face-to-face interaction? I understand the initial "don't see anyone" response but I'd like to be more comfortable knowing who I can see and how/how much now that we're settling into an isolation period.

How long is a reasonable isolation expectation? All schools and bars are closed for 2 weeks but I know it'll be longer than that. It matters less to me how long and more that there's something to plan around.

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

Lack of information/answers: people who can still work but have to be on-site (medical, grocery, etc.); people who just lost a job and want to know how they'll survive the next month or 3

Lack of access(?): People without ready internet access, people lacking technology skills

What is your current profession?

UX Designer

In what city are you located?
