The Best Social Distancing Tools

The Best Social Distancing Tools

While we know we're the home of the original social distancing stick / social distancing pole...there are folks out there coming up with their own ingenious ways to socially distance safely.

Here are our favorites:

Best Social Distancing Tool For Big Business: has developed a solution that enforces and tracks contact tracing. Meant for medium to large sized business, especially in warehousing, their wearable solution is super cool! It allows the business to 'to rapidly identify all the employees and areas that have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.' Although their solution isn't quite as cheap as other methods, it's a high-tech option for businesses that demand higher transparency.


Best Homemade/DIY Social Distancing Tool:

We're super impressed with the ease of creation, price tag (under $30), and pure genius that this social distancing device embodies. Although it's not 6 feet, we applaud the fun but practical attempt at creating a personal device for safe social distancing. We can't say we're gonna be using this one, but it'd make for a great Halloween costume in the coming years. Just throw on one of our 'Stay Back 6 Feet' shirts, and you'll be good to go.

Best Overall Social Distancing Tool

We might be 'tooting our own horn' here, but we think it's The Social Stick.

It's been called a social distancing pole, stick, and poker. Customer product suggestions/upgrades have been suggested from making it spring loaded to adding a taser on the end. In the end, we think that The Social Stick is highly practical, cheap, lightweight and generally usable by everyone.

Our Favorite Social Distancing Signs

Funny Social Distancing Signs

We felt like everyone could use a little lighthearted entertainment, so we compiled our favorite social distancing signs.

The "At Least 1 Dolphin Apart, Please"

At Least One Dolphin Apart

It has one review.. "We put this sign on our pool deck to jog people's memories about the new normal. Mostly everyone pays attention. But if someone is getting too close, a gesture or even just a glance towards the sign serves as a friendly reminder of what we all need to do now. "

The "Not too close, honey." sign

-Dylan Coonrad "Street Signs for a Socially Distant Era (A Love Letter to NYC)" Dylan's full article is here. Dylan’s designs have been featured by the New York Times, NBC, Fast Company, and many others.

Finally, the Social Distancing Champion Bigfoot T-Shirt is quite hilarious. Although it isn't a 'sign' per-se...You can keep safe from germs, flu, colds, and a crazy virus with this funny Bigfoot shirt (hand sanitizer not included)

Social Distancing Hats?

Social Distancing Hats?

Social Distancing Hats

People everywhere are getting creative with ways to enforce the social distancing standards recommended by health organizations around the world. One town, Hangzhou, China, has elected to send kids back to school. In order to promote the 6 feet of social distance for children, they have designed a hat that measures 1 meter across.
Sure, this might not be the whole 6 feet of distance being promoted but it does address a question a lot of people are having:
How do we help children understand how to maintain a safe social distance? 
Heck, it's hard as adults to truly understand how far 6 feet is and frankly, it's farther than you would think (enter Social Stick). This school has come up with a creative way to visualize that social distance and what's even cuter, a lot of kids are electing to decorate their hats with everything from construction paper birds and leaves to balloons and googly eyes.

Even cooler, this concept for distancing hats isn't new according to Eileen Chengyin Chow (@chowleen) in this tweet about a practice during the Song Dynasty time period:

"The long horizontal plumes on Song Dynasty toppers were supposedly to prevent officials from conspiring sotto voce with one another while at court—so social distancing was in fact their original function!" - Eileen Chow

We're all just trying to make some sense out of these times and this story especially warmed our hearts.
