I can't make the WOTY voting session (you can relax) but I'd like to advocate for "social distancing" as WOTY.
Unlike many of the other candidates, it is neither facetious, slang, or unnecessary (i.e. there is no synonym for it).It is widely recognized and better yet, widely used in serious public communication, e.g. signs reading "WEAR A MASK AND MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING"
