In these times of self-isolation, Hebrew Academy is saying in its Twitter that we should stay away שני מטרים shnei metrim or שני מטר shnei meter (two metres) and not שתי מטר shtei meter from each other.
The rules the Academy reminds us of are the following:
Note that all this goes beside the basic rules of using Hebrew numerals: the numeral goes before the noun (unless it's number one, in which case it goes after the noun), and the numeral should agree in gender with the noun, and feminine forms are also used for counting — but this is outside the scope of this article.
Just for your reference, the table with all Hebrew numerals from 1 to 10 is here. You can click on any row in the table to see the full inflection — including the construct forms and pronominal forms. We'll publish some posts on how to use those forms at some time later.
