What is a safe distance between people during the epidemic?

If conditions permit, one office for each person is recommended. In the case of a tight station, try to sit apart at a certain distance, reduce face-to-face communication and use online communication as much as possible. The World Health Organization recommends keeping a distance of at least one meter away from others, especially those with symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and a fever.
