“Why’s a graveyard the safest place in quarantine?"/"Everybody’s 6 feet away.”

The 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in six feet social distancing requirements. “Six feet” often refers to how deep a person is buried in a cemetery.

“This place is great for #socialdistancing you are guaranteed to be at least 6 feet away from he people around you @ Green-Wood Cemetery” was posted on Twitter by Katrina Damkoehler on March 15, 2020. “It’s a great time to take a walk in a cemetery, it’s guaranteed that every body is at least 6 feet away from you” was posted on Twitter by sally cantirino on March 19, 2020. “My parents said I could go outside but had to stay 6 feet away from everyone. So I went for a nice walk around the cemetery” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on April 9, 2020.

“Hanging out in a peaceful little graveyard right now, because everyone stays more than six feet away from you here” was posted on Twitter by Nicole Passmore on April 14, 2020. “It is ok to go to graveyards because everyone who stays there will always be at least six feet away from you” was posted on Twitter by GrugsPro on May 6, 2020. “Why’s a graveyard the safest place in quarantine?"/"Everybody’s 6 feet away” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on January 10, 2021.

“Better six feet away than six feet under” (social distancing) is another “graveyard—six feet under” saying.

The safest place for a walk is probably the cemetery because all the residents there will be six feet away. #SocialDistancing

It is ok to go to graveyards because everyone who stays there will always be at least six feet away from you.

The best place to practise social distancing is the graveyard where everyone is over 6 feet away. #SocialDistancing
