“I never thought ‘I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole’ would become a national policy”

"I wouldn’t touch him/her with a ten-foot pole” was a common expression of avoidance in the United States in the 20th century. The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic created social distancing requirements of six feet away.

“I never thought ‘I wouldn’t touch you with a ten-foot pole’ would become national policy, but here we are” was posted on Twitter by Baron Von Douche on March 25, 2020. “I never thought **I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 10 foot pole ** would become national policy But here we are !!” was posted on Twitter by Mike the Italian Lion later on March 25, 2020.

“I never thought the comment ‘I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6 foot pole’ would become a national policy, but here we are” was posted on Twitter by Rosie on March 31, 2020, and on Facebook by Treasured Ever After also on March 31, 2020.
