It is a plastic shower curtain, which has disposable gloves so that the loved ones can hug each other without touching.

In such trying times, Englishman Antony Cauvin has come up with the idea of ‘cuddle curtain’.

It is a plastic shower curtain, which has disposable gloves so that the loved ones can hug each other without touching. Cauvin, who lives in Stratford-upon-Avon, came across this idea as he wanted to hug his grandmother while making sure that she stays safe from the possible infection.

A few days ago, another 10-year-old girl from California devised a similar shield in order to hug her mother while maintaining social distancing. Paige’s mother Lindsay Okray is a nurse and can’t hug her children normally. However, to find out a solution, Paige covered a gate with a ziplock curtain and plastic plates and cut two holes in it to join hand gloves.

Back in April, Louisiana woman Kathy Alleman came up with a ‘hug curtain’ made out of plastic curtains in order to keep her family close and to be able to hug her loved ones. She did it after her father expressed a desire to hug her. “I told her I really missed my hugs. Well, she went on she went right to work and a couple of hours we were over here hugging,” Alleman’s father, CJ Cavalier told NBC.
