Letter: COVID distancing math

Some misguided members of Congress, with nothing worthwhile to do, are now worried that the “six-foot” COVID-19 rule may not have been based in science. Well, I guess we could have done all kinds of tests to see just how close you could be to someone without getting their COVID germs.

When I was a child, my mother encouraged me to avoid people who seemed sick, so the “six-foot rule” seemed like common sense to me, since COVID infections were not always obvious. I will give Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC a break on this one.
