Judging from my few journeys outside my home the past few weeks, many people aren’t eyeballing it very well.
For some context: Many sidewalks in Milwaukee are 5 feet wide. So if you’re passing someone, and you're both still on concrete, you’re not 6 feet apart.
If you and a friend can reach out and touch each other’s hands, you’re not 6 feet apart — unless you’re an Antetokounmpo. Even then, you shouldn't be touching hands anyway.
Social media is here to help you estimate social distance.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison reminds you to keep one cow — or two calves — between you and other people.
The university’s social media accounts reposted a graphic from an Instagram user, benzandbougie, of a cow standing between two people to illustrate six feet of social distance.
If you’re more familiar with birds, consider keeping one great blue heron’s wingspan between you and other people, according to a tweet from Milwaukee’s Urban Ecology Center.
Here are some other Wisconsin ways to measure 6 feet of social distance:
1 Christian Yelich slide
1 fallen Italian Sausage
4.5 kegs standing upright
