We have all become highly sensitive to 'social distancing' since the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the Earth. The act of social distancing (more correctly called 'physical distancing') is to keep a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. The safe distance is suggested to be at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length). Even in normal times, without any epidemics, people naturally space themselves apart from others that they don't know.
