Default 26 foot sneeze zone (MIT Study)

Coronavirus social distancing guideline is too short at 6 feet, MIT study says particles from sneeze can go 4 times as far.

Social distancing should be at least EIGHT metres to avoid coronavirus risk | Daily Mail Online

Right! Imagine sitting at an outdoor establishment with a stiff cocktail and stiffer breeze. Fans blowing and misters misting. And a slob at the end of the bar facing a dozen patrons lets out a huge sneeze not in his bent arm.... How far is far enough? Yep, staying home, good answer.

Maybe the guy tasked with measuring the distance particles from sneeze may travel will get my check if I decide to donate it.

I guess we need to take turns sitting in our lanais. I know. When my sprinkler is on, I get to sit on my lanai.
