Our last post, “Fighting Coronavirus,” mentioned using toothpicks to push elevator buttons, but the concept is being taken to another level in this elevator. As The National reports, this elevator in Dubai has introduced a toothpick-bottle-foam method, instead of a bottle of hand sanitizer.
While the “six-foot rule” of social distancing can’t be followed in most cabins, like the one here, it seems prudent to do what you can in such an enclosed space as a typical elevator cab. This Central Park Towers, DIFC elevator (also in Dubai) sports tape and footprint stickers to help give guidelines for a bit of separation.
The article also has another example of the toothpick method that confuses me a bit and a video of it in use in another elevator. So, head over there and stay safe!
