Social Distancing in Stories

Post by NineBerry » Sun Mar 22, 2020 7:55 pm

Do you know any stories (books, films, TV) where people have to stay away from each other to save each other?

I think there was a (science fiction?) movie with this message. For some reason, all humans would have to isolate themselves for a short time to save the planet but can't really remember any details.

What comes close is the "His Dark Materials" trilogy of novels where
Trigger Warning!!!1! :
at the end you have the two lovers Lyra and Will who have to decide to never meet again and close all barriers between their two universes to save all existence.
