Social distancing mandates across the world demand a 6' distance between you and others. We all know that. It's been engrained in our brains now for over a year. But where did the number come from?
Frankly, I don't know.
BUT, I did see a new study come out from MIT challenging the stance.
Their findings are a breath of fresh air. Not only due to the findings, but simply to have some scientific proof to the validity of such a strongly supported guideline and public health mandate around the world.
In short, MIT professor Martin Z. Bazant and lead researcher for the study put it this way, “The risk of being exposed to Covid-19 indoors is as great at 60 feet as it is at 6 feet — even when wearing a mask.”
It's a fascinating study that I'm excited to share with you.
You can read about all their results, including the impacts indoor vs outdoor distancing and a nice reminder that we need to slow things down and consider that facts before running full steam on a stance that has resulted in the loss of businesses and childrens educations the world over.
