It may just be Burger King’s crowning achieve­ment. The fast-food restau­rant now has a “social-dis­tance crown,” a ver­sion of its clas­sic card­board hat fit­ted with an ex­tra-wide brim to help wear­ers con­form to social-distancing guide­lines.

While health ex­perts rec­om­mend stay­ing two me­tres away from others to slow the spread of COVID -19, the brim doesn’t quite ap­pear to span that dis­tance. But it can help keep others from get­ting close.

“The do-it-your­self social-dis­tance crown was a fun and play­ful way to re­mind our guests to prac­tice social distancing while they are en­joy­ing food in the restau­rants,” said a Burger King spokesper­son, ac­cord­ing to Busi­ness In­sider.

The crown is cur­rently only avail­able in Ger­many and was launched to mark the re­open­ing of Burger King restau­rants in the coun­try.
