Places of worship should mark six-foot increments to indicate tothe public where they should stand, and aisles should be designed as one-way movement so the public can practice social distancing.

Retail stores should provide curbside or storefront if possible and limit the number of customers inside at any given time to allow customers and employees to practice social distancing.

“These modifications seek to increase the immunity of the population slowly and methodically, while minimizing death. We are trying to keep equity in mind and minimizing economic damage,  while not overloading the health care system.”
