Distance Aware Scheme free badges and lanyards are now available for people worried about Covid risks in public spaces and who wish to show others that they would welcome additional space and extra care. The “Distance Aware” scheme, launched in January, is aimed at people at high risk or anyone who feels nervous about mixing with others as Covid restrictions ease. Research undertaken showed that almost 73% of people in the Highest Risk category would like to be able to let others know that they would appreciate some extra space. Badges and lanyards are available at libraries and Asda stores. . .
