In My Social Distance filter, there is a social distance circle prepared according to the social distance criteria of WHO and other health institutions on the screen of the person using the filter. Users can adjust their social distance using this augmented reality circle.
In the other Snapchat filter prepared against coronavirus, there are warnings about personal precautions against coronavirus such as staying at home, washing hands and not touching the face. Two filters with both social distance filter and warnings provide links to the World Health Organization’s website for additional measures.
