How long is 6 feet in real life?

6 Foot Rule
Standing 6 feet apart might seem a bit extreme, especially when you’re not planning on coming in contact with another person. After reading this, some people might think 6 feet isn’t far enough! When someone coughs or sneezes, they can send bacteria airborne. So, if you are in the 6 feet range, you might as well be breathing all those droplets in. Additionally, those droplets can stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes.

Now your next worry might be “how far is 6 feet”. Below are some examples to help you easily imagine 6 feet apart.
