What are the best visual tools to promote social distancing?

Visual tools are one of the best strategies to use for promoting social distancing by reminding others to practice the infection preventative technique. These tools have been showing up in a variety of essential businesses that are still in operation since large amounts of people still gather there for essentials like food, prescriptions, etc. Social distancing visual tools can have anything ranging from how to prevent catching the coronavirus to floor signs specifying the six-foot distance to maintain between people. Most people have gotten the hang of looking out for these kinds of visual guides now as they make their way into our lives by becoming the new normal, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find new ways to make social distancing in public places even more efficient.

Remember the rules of social distancing are:

  • Six feet away from others at all times
  • Avoiding crowded areas
  • No visitors or gatherings with others
  • Staying at home when sick
