Social distancing ideas. Crazy or brilliant?

Recommended Posts

My brother is all for this.  I think it it is stupid unless you have them for the subways as well.

Put motors on them and might be fun though.

 

Anybody got any more examples of social distancing ideas?

Those bumper tables will make it interesting when one needs to urinate.

We could all get together and talk civilly with others on an internet forum and discuss life in Thailand...

It's easy to social distance. Just pretend every facility is the auditorium of an '80s adult theater. Nobody sat anywhere near anyone else and liked it that way.

Might it not be more correct to say "needed it that way"?

Looked up those 'bumper tables' > it seems there is no limit to idiocy if this is part of the New Normal.

In the UK one of the UK's own scientific advisers has gone public and said the 2 metre rule is not scientifically jusitifiable:

 

"Is there any science behind two-metre social distancing rule…? Government adviser says guidelines on keeping apart was 'conjured out of nowhere'

 

Professor Dingwall from Nervtag said the rule is not backed by scientific evidence.

 

He said that government's advice for a two-metre distance was a 'rule of thumb'.

 

 'We cannot sustain [social distancing measures] without causing serious damage to society, to the economy and to the physical and mental health of the population.

 

He added: 'Well there is a certain amount of scientific evidence for a one-metre distance which comes out of indoor studies in clinical and experimental settings.

 

'There's never been a scientific basis for two metres, it's kind of a rule of thumb. But it's not like there is a whole kind of rigorous scientific literature that it is founded upon.'

So we agree there is evidence for a 1 meter distance, what about a compromise, if while keeping that distance the person near you starts coughing and sneezing you can just run like hell?
