Creation Date



Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the CDC issued recommendations that in addition to wearing face masks in public, all people "practice social distancing." The initial recommendation for social distancing was 6-feet apart for all individuals, masked or unmasked. To assist with spacing, most retail stores and banks placed self-adhesive signage on floors where patrons were expected to queue, spaced at 6-foot intervals.
