adjusting seating to try to keep the middle seat free, or notifying you if someone is seated next to you so you can re-book (many airlines now doing)
This seems fairly useless, doesnít it? 2 feet of distance isnít going to prevent any spread, and youíll have potential germ spreaders beside, in front of, and behind you.

I am pretty sure that this is how the Great Robot War is going to start.
No question that risk groups shouldn't be flying and that is the route I'm taking for as long as possible. But there are those in high risk groups who will need to travel.
The advice of a Dr. I heard the other day is, to me, the most sound and practical: There are degrees of safety -- if you can be at home, be home, if you can do remote meetings, do them, if you can meet outside, meet outside, if you can wear a mask, wear a mask, if you can be with people for less than 10 minutes, do so, if you can avoid singing in church, avoid singing, if you can physically distance, then distance, if you can't be 10 feet, be 6 feet, if you can't be 6 feet, be 3 feet. It's all a continuum of safety. If everyone does their best under whatever their circumstances are, we'll all be better off.
