Here’s a clever way of social distancing in markets done in Cebu

Cebuanos have gotten creative and clever in practicing social distancing in their markets. In a couple of Facebook posts by the Cebu City Market Operations Division, we can see that they have drawn circles on the ground to help market-goes practice social distancing while shopping.

To properly observe social distancing, Carbon Market-goers must stay on these circles to go around and shop inside the market.
