So, this really is a thing that’s happening in New York City right now to stop the spread of Covid-19:

Congratulations: You’ve invented “indoor dining”:

Can someone please explain the science to us?
So instead of being outside with lots of air circulation, they are in a tightly enclosed space with other people. And presumably other groups of diners will have to go into the same bubble after them. Great plan. https://t.co/0SJ5Sh32jJ

Everything is pandemic theater:
Bubble dining perfectly illustrates how misunderstanding coronavirus transmission endangers lives. The whole point of outdoor dining is fresh flowing open air. In a plastic capsule, exhaled viral particles will be trapped and accumulate, greatly increasing the risk of infection. https://t.co/IDbLJnwdbr

It won’t save any lives, but it’s romantic:
Ok, I know this isn't going to help stop COVID at all.
BUT am I the only one who thinks it would be kind of cool and romantic to eat in one of these while it's raining outside? No? https://t.co/EAkGDOIHAA

Where have we seen something similar to this before? Oh yeah . . .
