The 23,000 military and civilian officials who work at the Pentagon have been instructed to remain two arm’s lengths apart in light of the coronavirus. “We’re encouraging everybody to practice good social distancing,” commented a spokesman, Jonathan Hoffman. He also said that meetings where you would normally see everyone jammed into one room are now spread out over several locations and utilizing video calls. Even when officials are in the same room, they are remaining about six feet apart. Reporters have also been called out for crowding too close together and have been asked to spread out. Brig. Gen. Paul Friedrichs, joint staff surgeon, is asking for everyone to telecommute when possible and avoid crowded events and locations.
