Not an easy thing: The challenges of identifying

This is not a new challenge for me but with the Covid amongst us, I need to develop different ways to identify when someone is within social distancing of me. So, this is what I do.

If I am walking down the hall towards the elevator or towards the garbage chute, I use my sense of smell to see if I can smell anyone's perfume or cologne and if I do I say either hello or good morning. If the person responds then I know which side of the hallway I need to stay on.

When I enter the elevator, I always say the same: hello or good morning and then I use the response to tell me which side of the elevator I need to go to.

This almost always works for me and will not work if a person is there but chooses not to respond. On the whole, though, it does.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advisor, wishing you a terrific day!
