Daily Herald story

Once Americans can fly in, I don't see any way they could keep social distancing, even inside the terminal. There are not enough seats there when they can use ALL the chairs, let alone block off every other one..

Looking at the photo, it seems stupid to block off every other chair as it is hardly 6 feet apart. A feel good action at best.

Anything can work when there are no or very few passengers. SO the alternative will be to have everyone wait in a bunch together rather than sitting in chairs? Wear a mask....

I agree, but it is like that with a lot of how this is being dealt with. A false sense of security at best as well.

The EU guidance for distancing is 1 meter, just over 3 feet, not the US guidance of 6 feet.

From what I have read is the World Health Organization ( not a big fan right now ) only recompense 3 feet distancing . But we here in the U.S. go with 6 feet .
How's that working out for us !! ? Looks like back to the drawling board !!

Maybe it would be best not to try sky diving !

It would work if people would comply with it.
