One good thing about social is that it reminds people that this is something that applies to social situations. It means distance from other people in social settings. Physical could mean anything — distancing from tables, walls, cars, etc. The most frequent topic of emails in the last 3 days has been about buttons, for example. How to protect yourself from them, how to clean them, etc. How to use an ATM safely. It’s evoking the connection to people that is most important. Other people and me, other people and buttons I want to touch, etc. Why the cars are still social distancing on the usual busy street outside by window, I think is also the result of people thinking about distancing from other drivers. I haven’t measured but when they stop at the stoplight, they are now 6’ apart. Last week it varied from 1-2 car lengths.
