Some people are ready for things like handshakes and hugs again, and some aren’t. So how do you tell? Well, here’s one idea . . .
A lot of conferences have started using colored WRISTBANDS as a way for people to know who’s okay with physical contact, and who isn’t. Red means stay six feet away . . . yellow means touching elbows is okay . . . and green means you’re okay with things like handshakes, high-fives, and hugs again.
It’s not a new idea. A company called Social Bands started selling the wristbands last year. But “The Wall Street Journal” just did a big story on it this week. And they’re becoming more popular at big social events, like weddings.
An online retailer is selling these “social distancing bands.” Would you wear this at an event? What color and distance type would you add to the mix? pic.twitter.com/bgUtSSqy6W— Shellie Reid (@edgeofempty) March 8, 2021
