Social distancing is one of the most important ways to prevent many diseases, especially the respiratory system, where the latest internationally spread is coronavirus disease, and it will not be the last. The spreading of this pandemic has become a major threat to human life, especially to the elderly and people suffering from chronic diseases. During the Corona pandemic, medical authorities were keen to control the spread through social distancing and monitoring it in markets, universities, and schools. This monitoring was mostly used to estimate the distance with the naked eye and interfere with estimating the distance on the observer only. In this study, a computer application was designed to monitor social distancing in closed areas, especially in schools and kindergartens, using a fast, effective and unobtrusive technique for children. In addition to this system, we use augmented reality to help to determine the location of violation of social distancing. This system was tested, and the results were accurate exceeding 98.5 %.
