Do you know that people
who follow the SOPs and maintain social distance have a much-improved memory
capacity? According to the study conducted by the National Academy of Sciences, this is a sign of intelligence, and honestly, we couldn’t agree more.

Weiwei Zhang is an
associate professor of psychology working at the University of California at Riverside and
he released the following statement regarding the new study. he says that policymakers need to consider everyone’s general cognitive abilities in order to promote compliance behavior like ensuring social distancing or wearing the mask.

Zhang has a piece of simple advice for all the campaigns being run for social distancing: Be succinct,
concise, and brief. How about we put out
Distancing Floor Decals Stickers
all over the country?
What do you think? Would it help?
