While I'm all for intelligent design, planning and implementation of guidelines to help slow the pandemic, I am not for stupid virtue signaling that effects peoples lives and businesses.
To date, there is almost no evidence that dining outside is a source of spread of Covid.
Local and state health departments have even acknowledged that dining outside does not spread Covid but they want the public to "feel safe." So they have ordered restaurants closed even though they admit, they aren't a problem.

So, Mastro's said, Fuck it and they are open for business.

I believe outdoor dining is relatively safe, provided that it's actually outdoors and properly distanced. I see so many restaurants with fully or 3/4 enclosed tents and people sitting back to back with their chairs almost touching. Let restaurants keen outdoor dining open, but make sure its actually done right.

Again, there is actually zero data to backup that any of the dining practices that were outdoors lead to any spread of covid.
So "feeling like" people are too close isn't the same thing as people actually being too close.

And if this is true that they are too close, shouldn't all airplanes, buses, subways, etc. also be shut down?

The latest data shows that the #1 place Covid is spreading is construction sites. There isn't even conversation of construction being shut down regardless if it's "essential construction" or just business as usual.

link?

Your 100% right. Maybe 1000%
except for the fact this actually hasn't been an issue since outdoor dining started.

doesnt matter now. all the outdoor dining by me is basically enclosed tents. which has got to be worse than just eating inside.

airplanes, buses, and subways are essential

eating at a restaurant is not

furthermore, you can wear a mask while traveling but you can't while eating

hth and ban for no POL tag

I live in a very red state and blue state liberals are enjoying this mess. They love what they keep insisting we call “the new normal” and lockdowns give them a sickening sense of perverse satisfaction.
