“People must not cough near you, they must cough far away…” ("far cough")

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic made people socially distance and wear face masks. “Far cough” ("fuck off") was a popular joke. “Far cough” has been cited in print since at least 1991 and was entered in the Urban Dictionary on September 10, 2018.

“#COVID19au Conservatives are welcome into my safe space, Liberals can Far cough” was posted on Twitter by L J Whitman on March 16, 2020. “Shamelessly stolen… Under current guidelines, nobody should cough within 2 metres of you. If they do then it is to be recorded as a ‘near cough’ and you should immediately instruct them to ‘far cough’” was posted on Twitter by #IsThisSatire on March 17, 2020.

“To avoid infection ..  please, people must NOT cough near u. They MUST be far. If they cough near u, tell them to FAR COUGH” was posted on Twitter by Tinus Nel on March 20, 2020. “People must not cough near you. They must cough far away. IF they want to cough near you, tell them to Far cough!!!!!” was posted on Twitter by Radium Beerhall on March 20, 2020.

Similar to “far cough” ("fuck off") is “wee cough” ("week off"). “Sorry boss, I can’t come in today. I have a wee cough” is a related joke.

Given the consequences of a close cough these days, it’s finally become acceptable to tell people to far cough.
