Rebecca Hachmyer started this petition to Petaluma Community

In 2017, Indivisible Petaluma hosted our first March for Science event, Walk a Mile for Science. This year we are back with an important message. From Science.

You've stocked up on toilet paper and frozen peas. You are washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds ALL THE TIME. Now what? How can you and your family help to slow the spread of novel coronavirus-- to "flatten the curve"-- and to keep every member of our community safe? Science tells us that social distancing is the KEY to keeping the COVID-19 pandemic manageable. Let's work together to get this virus under control. Take the pledge to practice STRICT SOCIAL DISTANCING starting today. This means that you pledge to:

  • Refrain from ALL handshakes, hugs, high fives etc. with people outside of the members of your immediate family who are self-isolating.
  • Postpone all group gatherings, large or small.
  • Work from home whenever possible.
  • Postpone playdates. The only exception to this should be if you and a select set of 2-3 families have gone through a legitimate quarantine period, are fully self-isolating, and commit to only interacting with one another. This is not easy. But it is important.
  • Do not leave the house unless it is an emergency. For those who have them, the stockpile, the deep freeze, and the dusty items on the pantry shelves-- they are for NOW.
  • Maintain 6 feet between you and other people outside of the members of your immediate family who are self-isolating.
  • Take this all seriously and to do your best to encourage and support those around you to do the same.

Sign the pledge with your full name and your family will be automatically entered to win 2 of the 80 tickets we are giving away to the Children's Museum of Sonoma County. If your name is drawn we will track you down via social media once social distancing is over and we will also post a list of the winners on our Indivisible Petaluma Facebook Page as well as on our listserve.
