Lockdown Series: COVID-19 Signage

Updated: Sep 16, 2022

Almost overnight, COVID signage started appearing to provide instructions to the public. What seemed like clear, concise directions like "Keep Left" seem completely lost on most people. I am constantly surprised to find that common sense is not that common!
