Physical distancing for social closeness

During lockdown I read about the anthropologist Edward T. Hall and his study on ‘proxemics’. 
Hall distinguished four interpersonal zones, taking into account personal and cross-cultural differences:

  1. The intimate zone (0-45 cm)
  2. The personal zone (45-120 cm)
  3. The social zone (120-360 cm)
  4. The public zone (360-750 cm or more)

How will your attitude towards different forms of contact change the coming years?
