21 Clever Ways People Are Enforcing Social Distancing In Different Parts Of The World

Cases of beer, stuffed pandas, a very fancy traffic light system, and lots of clever signs.


This burger stand uses a system of slides to keep distance from their customers — slip your money down the ramp on the left, get your food from the ramp on the right.


This outdoor cafe gives customers hats with pool noodles on them, to make sure nobody gets too close to each other.


This restaurant installed a traffic light to make sure customers go to the bathroom one at a time: red light means it’s occupied, green light means you’re good to go.


This Stew Leonard’s grocery store has started putting a graph on their receipts that shows customers when their busiest hours are, to help people find times when the aisles will be less crowded.


Cities across the globe are urging people to keep space from others using local “units of measurement.” For example, this town in Australia encourages people to stay one kangaroo away from each other.


While this Canadian town advises people to stay one hockey stick away from others.


Meanwhile, this town in Wisconsin urges people to stay one cow length apart at all times.


In Salem, Massachusetts (the location of the Salem Witch Trials back in the day), visitors are reminded to maintain distance with Halloween-themed signage.


And this castle in Scotland — the perfect location for any fairy tale — opted for one unicorn of distance between visitors.


This dog park encourages pet owners to keep “the length of three happy dogs” away from each other.


And this park offered all sorts of points of reference to really cover their bases. A twin bed, a fridge on its side, a female sea lion…there’s something for everyone on this sign.


This device beeps when you accidentally come within six feet of someone else wearing one, so you never forget to keep that social distance.


This gym created individual sealed rooms for customers to work out in.


This cafe put mannequins at every other table, to keep customers from sitting too close to each other.


While this restaurant placed families of stuffed panda bears at tables to make sure their customers were properly spread out.


This park posted a big sign reminding humans to practice social distancing — and a much smaller sign beneath it, to remind any nearby woodland creatures to practice squirrel distancing.



This pet shop put markers on the floor to remind customers — and their four-legged friends — to steer clear of one another.


The floor markers at this toy store help keep kids from wandering around, by challenging them to stand on one leg like a flamingo.


This church uses automatic hand sanitizer machines to dispense holy water, to prevent people from crowding around the font (and sticking their dirty fingers in it).


This park replaced its regular benches with individual seats, to make sure strangers don’t get too close.


And finally, this bar keeps patrons apart by using something very appropriate for the times — cases of Corona beer 🙃.
