In a matter of days, the US has adopted and become very familiar with a new word – social distancing. Anyone paying attention to the news, their neighbors, or strangers in their local grocery store, is aware of social distancing and what it means. Staying six feet away from other people is the most common of the social distancing measures. Maintaining distance, and “doing the five“, are vital practices for businesses who have kept their doors open to the public.
COVID-19 has created a new way of living, and it’s likely to be the new norm even after initial fears of coronavirus infection have faded. Residences and businesses have access to new signage designed to help reinforce social distancing, and control the spread of COVID-19. Whether you have a high-risk person in your household, or you are keeping your business afloat during the pandemic, you can find signs to remind others to keep a proper social distance.
Business Signs for Social Distancing
Most businesses, particularly small local businesses across the US, are doing everything they can to stay afloat and to follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Make sure you have signage in place that lets your customers know you are open for business, and that you are following CDC guidelines.
Keep your business running during quarantine and social distancing with:
- Yes, We’re Open for Business Signs
- We’re Practicing Social Distancing Signs
- Wash Your Hands Signs
- Take-Out and Curbside Signs
- Do the Five Signs
Once the US is operating normally again, businesses and individuals will still be on high alert, and keenly aware of the danger of infectious disease. It is pertinent to adopt new procedures and ensure that your staff and customers follow them. Get the signs you need to let customers know you are practicing newly adopted rules and expectations in a post-COVID-19 world.
Also make sure your customers have easy access to the information they need about your business. Make sure your signage is current and that it reflects your latest hours, procedures, new delivery services and rules.
Every small business or restaurant should post updated signs for their:
- Hours of Operation (Include Peak Hours)
- Accepted Payment Methods
- Drive up or Walk in Rules
- Food Delivery Rules, Locations or Limits
It is also important to post updated signage that will set customers at ease once restaurants and “non-essential” businesses are open.

- ADA Compliance
