Send everyone a 2m measure

Many people dont seem to understand what 2m looks like. It's time to send them something with one of the letters about COVID-19 to highlight exactly how far apart they should be. This could be a paper tape like you see in Ikea or better still, a circular 2m fold out poster, perhaps with other social distancing advice. Stand in the centre and see how far away people should be.

Why the contribution is important

Many people arent keeping to adequate social distancing, but not everyone understands metric or has spatial awareness to get an idea of how far two metres is. We need a way to make this very clear to them.

    Agree that many people don't seem to understand exactly how far 2 metres is, but this seems an expensive way to deal with the problem. Perhaps needs to be more consideration of examples that could be provided in publicity, e.g. Sainsbury's two trolley lengths apart rule is effective in that setting, 4 arms lengths, the height of Peter Crouch, more than the width of the average car.
