A new study has concluded our social distancing guidelines are not near enough, and may even be negated by one single thing: our shoes.

Hospital workers’ shoes were tested and more than 50% of them had Coronavirus on them, which was then capable of being spread wherever they walked.

From the NY Post:

The coronavirus can travel through the air at least 13 feet — more than twice as far as social distancing guidelines, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Research published in the federal agency’s Emerging Infectious Diseases journal shows the contagion spreading far further than previous official suggestions — and also getting spread on people’s shoes.

“The aerosol distribution characteristics … indicate that the transmission distance of [COVID-19] might be 4 m,” the report says, translating as more than 13 feet.
