Physical distancing could also create communication challenges like :

  • Speech could sound quieter because the levels of sound go down with distance.

  • You can't get closer, lean in, or use similar strategies to assist in the breakdown of communication.

  • Focusing your attention on speech could be difficult at a distance with the environmental sounds, like a loud car stereo or the chirping of birds.

  • It's harder to see visual cues like the speaker's lips or facial expression at a distance

Suggested tips for effective communication :

  1. Talk a little louder.

  2. Ensure you have the full attention of your communication partner.

  3. Talk a little slower.

  4. Face your partner and ensure nothing is obstructing your view.

  5. Ask them if they understand you; if not, write it down or say it a different way.

  6. Use body language and your hands.

  7. Move to a quieter place.
