Walkie Talkies Promote Social Distancing During Coronavirus Outbreak

Walkie talkies are an easy device for people of all ages to use, and a great way to help promote social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak. Although cell phones are the first line of communication, walkie talkies are a great alternative way to stay connected.

Walkie Talkies Promote Social Distancing During Coronavirus Outbreak

Within the Family


Those who test positive for the coronavirus, or those coming home from abroad, are being asked to be quarantined in their homes. They may be quarantined in one area of the house, while their family is in another part of the house. In order to communicate with your loved ones quickly and effectively, you can use walkie talkies.  Walkie talkies will give you instant communication, but also allow you to social distance yourself. You can purchase the
X-Talker T31X3. The T31X3 is an affordable radio set that comes with 3 radios for you and your family.

Neighborhood Watch 

Walkie-Talkies Help with Social Distancing
You may be socially distancing yourself from your neighbors, but you can still continue to communicate with your neighbors with a walkie talkie. It would be similar to the app,
Neighbors, but with walkie talkies! As long as your neighbors are all on the same channel and within range, you can still continue to patrol your neighborhood. Making sure to continue to keep everyone updated and safe. The perfect walkie talkie for this situation would be the X-Talker T290. The T290 will give you and your neighbors maximum range.

The Elderly 

Walkie Talkies Promote Social Distancing
As a way to keep the elderly safe, nursing homes have closed their doors, not allowing any family or friends in. The only way you can see your loved ones is through the glass window.  This can be very difficult because everyone needs their support system. An easy way to communicate could be giving your loved one a walkie talkie and communicating with them when you are visiting outside of the glass.  A recommended walkie talkie would be the
X-Talker T51.  The X-Talker T51 is easy to use and comes with a desktop charger for easy charging.

Entertainment for Children

Kids Walkie Talkies for Social Distancing

As schools are closing, children are stuck at home away from their friends.  Your kids may begin to get restless and bored. You can keep the kids entertained and allow them to talk to their neighborhood friends through walkie talkies, like the X-Talker T20X4.  The set contains 4 multi-color walkie talkies that are easy for kids to use and an affordable way to keep kids busy throughout the day.

Although the Coronavirus has forced us to social distance ourselves from others, walkie talkies make it possible to make the distancing a little bit easier.
