Safety and Social Distancing with Floor Marking Tape
Posted by Tape Jungle on 10/25/2022
As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, people seek ways to protect themselves and their loved ones. One way to do this is by practicing social distancing. Social distancing means staying at least six feet away from other people and avoiding close contact with anyone who is sick.
One way to practice this is with social distancing tape. Business owners can use this type of tape to mark areas where people should stand, sit, or wait in line. They can also indicate which way people should walk to stay six feet apart. Social distancing tape is a simple and effective way to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Where Can You Use Social Distancing Tape?
Social distancing tape can be employed as follows.
In Front of Cash Registers or Other Places Where People May Queue Up
If you have a business with a physical location, people will likely queue up at some point — whether it's to pay for their purchase or to use the restroom. In these cases, you can use social distancing tape to create a barrier between people. It will help remind people to maintain a safe distance from one another and will also help reduce the spread of germs.
On the Floor in Front of Checkout Aisles in Stores
Another place where social distancing tape can be helpful is in front of the checkout aisles in stores. This will help remind customers to stay six feet apart while waiting in line. It will also help reduce the number of people touching the same surfaces. Again, you can use a tape measure to ensure the distances are accurate.
Once you've marked the areas, use a tape dispenser to lay down the tape.
If you have heavy traffic in your store, you may also want to put the tape in other areas, such as in front of the restrooms or the break room.
Another place where social distancing tape can come handy is in elevators. Many people use elevators daily, and they can be crowded places.
By placing social distancing tape on the floor of an elevator, you can help people keep their distance from one another. You can also use tape to mark areas within the elevator, such as where people should stand or sit.
Around Water Fountains or Drinking Fountains
Another place where social distancing tape can be helpful is around water fountains or drinking fountains. These are often high-touch areas and can be breeding grounds for germs. By placing social distancing tape around these areas, you can help people avoid them altogether.
On Sidewalks or in Parking Lots
What if you could mark out safe walking distances on your property? Social distancing tape is an easy way to do just that! It's perfect for paths, sidewalks, and parking lots because it gives people enough room to avoid bumping into one another.
All with no mess or hassle whatsoever, you can simply unroll the provided strip from its dispenser onto any flat surface — and then press it down, so it adheres. And that's it! The social distancing tape is made of weatherproof material, so it can withstand the elements without fraying and curling. The tape is also reflective, so it'll be visible at night.
At ATMs or Other Machines Where People Stand Close Together
If you have an ATM on your property, people will likely stand close together while they wait to use it. To help maintain social distancing, use social distancing tape to mark a safe distance in front of the machine. You can also use it to create a barrier between people and the machine.
In Lobbies or Reception Areas
Lobbies and reception areas are often high-traffic areas where people tend to congregate. To help maintain social distancing, use social distancing tape to mark a safe distance in these areas. You can also use it to create a barrier between people and the furniture in these areas.
In Offices, at Desks, or in Cubicles
It's no secret that many people struggle to practice social distancing in the workplace. Whether they're used to working in close quarters or the office lacks enough space to spread out, keeping everyone at a safe distance can be challenging.
One way to help encourage social distancing is to use social distancing tape to mark off areas where people should sit. You can do this on desks, in cubicles, or even on the floor. Tape is an easy way to create a visual cue that will remind people to maintain a safe distance from one another. Plus, it's a relatively inexpensive solution that's easy to implement.
On Public Transportation
One of the best ways to practice social distancing is to use social distancing tape on public transportation. This tape will help ensure that people sit or stand at least six feet apart. Use the marker to write a message on the social distancing tape.
The message can read something like, "Please sit/stand here for social distancing."
Benefits of Social Distancing Tape
There are many benefits to using social distancing tape in your home or office. This type of tape can help keep people at a safe distance from one another, reducing the spread of germs and bacteria. Additionally, social distancing tape can help create a more organized environment.
