It’s harder to do something with greater risk of viral transmission than eating in a restaurant
I used to love eating out at restaurants with friends on the weekends. My city has a large number of highly rated restaurants covering food from places like the middle east, Asia, Europe, and even Latin and South America. You can take a stroll down several city blocks downtown and find food from two totally different parts of the world. I love the diversity and my taste buds love it too. There’s a diner that serves all sorts of wraps and sandwiches from various Arabic speaking countries, and I think that’s what I like the most. Vietanamese food is fantastic, but my weak tongue has never been able to get past the spiciness of much of Tai cuisine. None of this matters anymore because now I don’t eat out. Occasionally I’ll grab a take out order on my way home from work, but these buildings have become festering grounds for coronavirus. Our Governor recently lifted all restrictions on bars and restaurants, including rules for occupant capacity. It’s harder to do something with greater risk of viral transmission than eating in a restaurant. You have to remove or lift up your mask every single time you take a bite of food or a sip of your beverage, and that goes for every other person in the building short of the employees. These places could buy HEPA rated UV light air purifiers to give the interiors better ventilation, but none of them have thus far. I don’t even want to walk inside to grab a take out order because the air is so heavily contaminated.
