Unfortunately, the Covid-19 outbreak continues to impact the way we live, from social behavior to government. restrictions. Whilst some retail units and public spaces remain closed, others are open, with some, such as supermarkets and pharmacies experiencing higher demand, whilst needing to maintain social distancing amongst customers.
While most companies have been quick to implement short-term solutions to help keep visitors safe, such as increased sanitization, PPE vending machines, and face mask mandates, there is a need for long-term solutions.As one of many measures suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO), physical distancing plays an integral part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and stays important once quarantine and lockdowns ease. For essential businesses and public places that are still open today, but also for retail stores, restaurants, bars and other event spaces that will reopen at some point, it is now important to figure out how to ensure a safe distance between individuals and to prevent overcrowding in their premises.
