I'm reminded of the tourism slogan Carson Valley (Nevada) is using this year: "Your social distance is our normal distance." This must be tough for people who live in super-crowded inner cities, but for a lot of people it's very easy to safely go outside as normal. Simply standing further apart and wearing a mask while talking isn't much of a burden outside of big cities.
