For most people, social distancing has been a new concept for many to understand in 2020. However, this idea is old news for redheaded people. I'll attempt to explain.

The accepted standard is 6 feet apart. That's the distance it is believed that could protect you from being infected by dangerous viruses. As a redheaded person, I can tell you this is easier than you think.
