Have a look at this: Every day gets better doesnt it?
In case you haven't seen it, it is a flashing bit of plastic on a lanyard that screams at you if you get too close to somebody. Is this the next thing that we will be told to wear?

Sorry to sound flippant but just sometimes it begins to sound a little bit silly, or is it just me?
Bump: the cutting-edge social-distancing system to support return to work strategies
On Friday, we announced the development of ‘Bump’ – a new, cutting-edge technology system specifically designed to help keep people safe in the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bump’s peer-to-peer system seeks to change and improve personal-distance behaviour by recording the interactions between devices every time someone comes into contact with another’s Bump zones. The wearable device will alert them if contact is made, with each interaction recorded and made available for the individual wearer to review.
Bump was developed as a preventative measure to help businesses enforce personal-distance standards, measure effectiveness, minimise aerosol transmission, and support the implementation of contact transmission policies.
As well as alerting wearers, the Bump system can be used by employers to monitor the interactions taking place, providing additional insight into movement throughout the workplace and the intelligence to inform social-distancing measures.
