Florida county reminds people to maintain distance of at least 1 alligator between each other


LEON COUNTY, Fla. — The CDC recommends people stay about six feet apart to avoid spreading the novel coronavirus.

So how far is that?

Well, as officials in Leon County, Florida puts it, about the length of an alligator.

The county released a visual aid for residents.

They note it should be a large alligator.

“This is a reminder that during COVID 19, please remember to keep at least 1 large alligator between you and everyone else at all times,” Leon County said on Facebook.

The distance is to avoid the spread of respiratory droplets from infected people to healthy ones.

Other ways to remember the minimum length for social distancing?

It’s about the size of a sedan, a sofa or two golden retrievers.

And, for the metrically minded, it’s about two meters.
