Is six feet of social distance enough? Doctors and research suggest it may not be

Some people have interpreted the rule to mean that you can still get together in large groups as long as everyone is six feet away from each other. Doctors say that’s not a good idea.

“Six feet is kind of a general recommendation,” Dr. James Miner says. Miner is the chair of emergency medicine at the Hennepin County Medical Center. He says the six-foot rule is only an educated guess.
