Applying "zones of influence" to social distancing in schools

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Social distancing is important in controlling the spread of Covid-19. This strategy has proven to be highly effective in flattening the curve of new cases/deaths. In this article I discuss the spatial implications of England's social distancing policy in relation to the school setting and, in particular, how this might apply to seating configurations in schools as the Covid-19 lockdown, implemented from 23 March 2020, is gradually eased.

The following discussion would also be relevant to spatial considerations for the design of open-plan offices and the placement of office workers’ desks.
