Yes, I've heard that about NYC.
People are just going out regardless.
If NYC wants to actually corral people in, it is probably going to have to do what France has done, which is mandate everyone have a form that explains why he is outside, and have a whole bunch of extra police officers going around checking everybody's form and heavily fining anyone who doesn't have a good reason to be out.
Dating outside the home is pretty much out, agreed.
Well, maybe it's time for a brief return of that age-old tradition of writing love letters back and forth?
If you can't bring her to yours... and you can't go to hers... that's about the only thing that's left in the meantime.
Anyway, don't let it get you too down.
This will pass.
Even during the Black Death, when 1/3 of Europe perished to disease, people still found ways to live and have fun.
And COVID-19 is no Black Death (and won't last nearly as long, either).
