Closing, distancing 6ft apart, masking is this solving the problem?
Using distancing, count customers to keep fewer in the store, have less checkouts. Movie theaters remain closed.
Offices are closed for many and people are trying to work from home.
Since mid February 2020 most malls are still closed, some shops are opening with many challenges.
The virus spreads most commonly through close contact, scientists say. But under certain conditions, people farther than 6 feet apart can become infected by exposure to tiny droplets and particles exhaled by an infected person, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in October. Those droplets and particles can linger in the air for minutes to hours.
To visually illustrate the risk of airborne transmission in real time, The Washington Post used a military-grade infrared camera capable of detecting exhaled breath. Numerous experts – epidemiologists, virologists and engineers – supported the notion of using exhalation as a conservative proxy to show potential transmission risk in various settings.
