What Are The Best Social Distancing Mats?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2020 - Modified: July, 2023

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, social distancing has become the norm, and providing ways to allow for roughly 6 feet of space between people or families has become essential. Rarely do we see a large group of people gathered in public anymore. From floor decals and markers on carpet to signs and stickers, it seems that everywhere we go, clearly marked separation boundaries help prevent close and potentially unsafe physical contact with others. Providing and placing social distancing mats in a commercial or public setting is an easy and affordable way to clearly identify adequate safety spacing. Greatmats has a number of social distancing mats available, with options suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.
