Emily Post Institute, Lizzie discussed on Clark Howard


On manners during this corona virus pandemic in here with more on the evolving etiquette from the Emily post institute is Lizzie post so the thanks for being with us I want to start off with supermarket and a kid what are the rules we should be following we really want to be following whatever the rules are supermarkets or settings so whether that following a directional path up and down the aisles if it's wearing masks for everyone I believe it is still trying to keep that physicals six foot distance which I think we need a lot of practice with but things are so different now you're not picking up all the different produce and boxes and reading labels you're trying to really only engage with product when you're going to select it you're also trying to look around you make sure that there's not someone reading six feet away to get into that spot but has the item that you're looking for we also really want to be extra courteous to the staff were there every day there are social workers and they're making it possible for us to purchase these items so you don't just want to say thank you at the cash register when I say it's all the stuff that you're seeing what about outdoor activities a lot of people walking their dogs running even riding their bikes what are the tips you give this is a really hard space right because you're outdoors so it feels like you're more protected than when you're in those smaller confined spaces but there's been a lot of a lot of talk about still needing to maintain physical distance any spaces a lot of records are actually a full twelve feet wide or six feet wide so you're you're trying to gauge distances that were not used to having to gauge get really familiar with what six feet looks like you might even want to measure on your own pads sidewalks to see kind of really help far away do you need to move my mom always tells me she says you know put your arm out if they put their arms it's about six feet between the two of you but it's a really tough one you need to wear that mask every time you pass somebody for sure I can understand when you're not on the block that has anyone else on it you want to pull it down get the fresh air but if you're on a bike if you're running if you're walking roller blades skateboards freezers whatever it is you really want to be creating that six feet want to be wearing a mask and if you're in a group dropped back to single file as you go to pass someone because it allows you to create more room you don't end up pushing someone way off the path or into the street or into someone's yard in order to create the proper distance yeah I know that is very important I love that this is an interesting one I'm curious what you're gonna say because in these times we're hearing a lot of people cheering loudly blasting their music playing music and maybe they have the best of intentions what your thought is.

Coming up next
