The government of Leon County, Florida implores you to engage in social distancing in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Stay at least six feet apart from each other.
But how much is six feet? Floridians need a guideline that they can readily understand. Alligators are an ordinary part of Florida life (I proposed marriage to my wife next to an alligator pond). So it's sensible to tell Floridians that they should keep an alligator's worth of space between each other.
