Because a lady leaned over you in the supermarket
Keep your distance, people. We’re serious on this one. We’re all obliged to keep two metres apart from each other when out and about, and believe it or not, that includes in the supermarket.

We’ve just seen you sanitise absolutely everything in sight (see point three) but for some reason the twometre rule doesn’t apply to you right now. We beg to differ.
