There are times when guiding foot traffic or managing groups of people is needed using visual cues. To help the process run smoothly, stanchions and crowd control barriers are commonly used. Stanchions are posts with either retractable belts or roping that connect to form queues or boundary lines. The Center for Disease Control, or CDC, has established social distancing guidelines of six feet to help prevent the spread of infection. Stanchions and crowd control barriers are effective tools to create physical separation between individuals or groups and help people navigate an area safely. In schools there are many spaces where stanchions and crowd control barriers can be used to practice responsible social distancing such as drop off and pick up areas, hallways, restrooms and cafeterias.
