Disapointing the lack of social distancing in Mail centre

The area I work in attempted and did very well with social distancing, however on the main floor, I have to say it was disappointing to see both postpersons and managers talking inches from each other and certainly not six feet away.
We need to be aware, this social distancing is not just for fun, it is to prevent our NHS being overwhelmed, so that it can deal with our loved ones, when they become ill from Corona virus, a heart attack or cancer.
We may think that us being infected does not matter, but one person being infected, using the mulitpiler ends up infecting 400 other people of which 4 can be expected to die.
Some people who work for Royal Mail, also have family in grave danger, if their family member gets the virus.
Please consider the whole community.
Thank you,

I see the Royal Mail Brief to Managers only says a two meter social distancing should be observed 'where possible'. Managers are going to say it is not possible.
When I worked at Mount Pleasant there would be 3 or more people working on a sorting bay intended for one person.

Then collectively we will be responsible for a shortage of available ICU beds and I am sorry to say, some deaths.

Yes I think a lot of mc staff will be getting and spreading the virus.

One thing that could improve it, where a DO has multiple selections, just have 1 selection per physical office so packet bullrings can be made smaller, which might, with a bit of tweaking improve separation between setups. The same could be done for yorks of letters and flats

I have often wondered why some DO's get so many inward selections especially when they only have one inward sort at the DO.

Some DOs might possibly effectively work as two separate DOs under the same roof
