As opposed to social distancing, which is highly recommended for everyone, self-isolation is meant for individuals with no symptoms, but with possible COVID-19 exposure, not necessarily everyone. In self-isolation, distancing measures are stricter to prevent the spread of the disease. Self-isolation is usually recommended for 14 days, whereas social distancing is meant to be an ongoing modification in lifestyle for everyone.
Remember that social distancing is mostly a physical measure. There are ways to maintain emotional and social connections with your loved ones, even during these trying times.
