“Does social distancing tack on six additional feet to each active restraining order?”

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic resulted in many social distancing requirements. Social distancing was compared to a restraining order.

“I do my social distancing the old-fashioned way, usually because of a restraining order” was posted on Twitter by Rebel Elle™ on March 8, 2020. “I’ve been social distancing for years but that’s because of the restraining orders” was posted on Twitter by Alana Schetzer on March 17, 2020. “I’ve been social distancing for years...mostly because of restraining orders” was posted on Facebook by “im not right in the head.com” on August 27, 2020.

“Social distancing is just a 6 foot restraining order against everybody” was posted on Twitter by YouTube-Dad on April 8, 2020. “Social Distancing is like a restraining order for Everyone against everyone. #SocialDistancing #Covid” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Presents on July 30, 2020. “Social distancing is just restraining orders by everyone, on everyone” was posted on Twitter by ꜰɪʀᴇ ᴀᴛ ᴡɪʟʟ! on August 9, 2020.

Some people wondered how six feet of social distancing applied to restraining orders. “Does the 6ft social distancing rule add on top of restraining orders or is it just like extra credit?” was posted on Twitter by “RemyJer on YouTube” on April 3, 2020. “How do restraining orders work during social distancing? Is it like the normal distance plus an additional six feet?” was posted on Twitter by “nick… from okc” on April 9, 2020. “Does social distancing tack on 6 additional feet to each active restraining order? Asking for a friend” was posted on Twitter by Haute Yogurt on April 22, 2020. “Does social distancing mean people with restraining orders have to add 6ft to it?” was posted on Twitter by MylesWilliams on May 26, 2020.

In my day “social distancing” was just a nice way of saying “restraining order.”

This social distancing is nothing new. Of course, in my day it pertained to select individuals and was called restraining orders, but still…

A side effect of social distancing is it has added 6’ to all restraining orders.
