Sun on the Street

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events - and just plain fun questions.

Normally, you might find us anywhere around the community with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. This time, we are practicing social distancing and turned to social media to ask our question: How are you dealing with social distancing to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus?

Lynn Buchman, Hilton Head Island: "Our cul-de-sac is set up with chairs in a circle, spaced 6 feet apart. At 9 a.m., [we] bring our coffee and share concerns, ... and make sure everyone is able to get needed groceries or prescriptions."

Debbie Lacovara, Bluffton: "We have discontinued our social life, so instead I've been exercising and preparing for the return of my Monarchs."

Denise Spencer, Bluffton: "Today (March 27) is my 13th day of 'distancing.' I work from home, and don't go out except to get curbside grocery pickup and walk the dog and grab my mail. Communication is all phone/email/Zoom/social media."

Margaret Crenshaw, Hilton Head Island: "Working from home. Only going once a week to the grocery, but walks through the neighborhood are the highlight of each day. Virtual cocktail hour with friends makes me not feel so alone."

Lindy Russell, Hilton Head Island: "Staying at home, doing projects. Making cards to send to elderly. Grocery shopping online, picking up curbside. Reading books, and enjoying not being on a schedule for the first time in a very long time."
