Journal of Medieval Scholasticism: How Many Spring Breakers Can Safely Fit Into a Phone Booth?


“How many Spring breakers can safely fit into a phone booth?” is one of the most frequent questions CDC administrators are currently being asked. Of course, telephone booths are practically obsolete. One’s going to be hard put to locate one in Daytona, Miami or any of the other well-known Florida waterholes known for their attraction to hellions. In fact, one of the few remaining uses of phone booths is as repositories for bodies. But if you're going to get yourself stuffed into one, there's the matter of vaccines, masks and social distancing. Those who have gotten both of their vaccines can fit themselves into a phone booth containing as many vaccinated people as will fit and not have to wear a mask. If 20 or more people are fitting into a phone booth and some are vaccinated while others are not, it’s recommended that both those who are vaccinated and those who have yet to be vaccinated still wear masks and maintain at least six feet of distance from each other in the phone booth, due to the dangers of asymptomatic transmission.
