The use of social distance as a barrier to the spread of the infectious Coronavirus Disease has been shown to be successful (COVID-19). Individuals, on the other hand, are not accustomed to keeping track of the necessary 6-foot distance between themselves and their surroundings. The spread of this deadly disease could be delayed by an active surveillance system capable of detecting distances between individuals. The paper proposes an AI-based system for automating the task of monitoring social distancing through surveillance. Creating a video analyzer platform to help authorities ensure that social distancing standards are observed in public areas. The tool will monitor if people wear masks and social distancing is maintained in public areas.
