As a blind guide dog user, I want social distancing to stay forever


It’s 10am and I’m walking down the street to catch my next train for work with my guide dog, Ida.


Despite it still being early, I’ve already been shoulder-barged twice, and a member of the public has stepped into my personal space to stroke Ida, irrespective of her wearing a harness that clearly displays the words: ‘Please do not distract me, I’m a working guide dog’.


It is daily incidents like these that make me wish social distancing rules were still in place.

But for most visually-impaired people, social distancing made life more difficult. We can’t see the signs on the floor to show which way to go or where to stand in a queue.
