Re: Seems a bit harsh
Glad i'm not the only one either..
Seems as if had they left out the word 'over', then the judgement might've gone the other way.. Which is odd, since the difference between "exactly 2 metres" and "over 2 metres" is mathematically zero. Plus there is a screen, so it is more protection than the requisite 2 metres without a screen.
As others have pointed out, it certainly seems a lot safer than riding a bus, train or tube where people may or may not wear masks, there are many times more of them (and therefore many times higher chance that one of them is infected), or indeed riding an Uber with a hanging plastic sheet, which only seems to waft the air about.
I wonder if the person who reported this to the ASA was a self-employed contractor ("my boss is an App!")
