For weeks now, we’ve all been hearing and reading about the importance of “social distancing” — that is, maintaining a safe distance away from other people, specifically to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But for many people, it’s hard to envision an invisible virus sticking to surfaces and being spread from physical contact.

To make the impact of social distancing a bit clearer, the Ohio Department of Health has released a brief, but genius PSA involving just ping pong balls and mouse traps. The PSA depicts two scenarios: one in which the mousetraps and balls are close together, and one where they’re spaced just a bit farther apart. Then, one more ping pong ball is tossed into the mix, and the change even just a little bit of extra space makes is powerful.
