Social distancing screens are everywhere at the moment. Whether you visit a supermarket, pharmacy, or an office, screens are being used effectively to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In this article, we explain how social distancing screens protect us from the virus, and the importance of using them in the workplace.

How do social distancing screens protect us against COVID-19?

COVID-19 is mainly spread from person to person through small droplets that come from the nose or mouth. When a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales, these droplets land on objects and surfaces. When other people make contact with these droplets and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth, they too can become infected with the virus.

A social distancing screen placed in front of a counter or between desks act as a barrier to these droplets and protect those behind it. Therefore, the risk of contracting COVID-19 when positioned safely behind a social distancing barrier is greatly reduced.

To eliminate risk further, social distancing barriers must be sanitised on a regular basis, eliminating any droplets that may be present.

The importance of social distancing screens

As we’re all aware, COVID-19 has spread rapidly. It’s now more important than ever for companies to ensure the workplace is as safe and hygienic as possible, both for employees and members of the public. For supermarkets, pharmacies and collection points, the government’s advice on staying 2 meters apart is proving to be difficult - people are constantly in and out, talking to staff and paying for goods. The solution for this? Social distancing screens.
