Impact of virtual drinking trend

Life changed slowly in the beginning of 2020, and then all at once when the realities of COVID-19 set in. Restaurants and bars that were filled in February were shuttered until further notice by mid-March. Thousands of hospitality workers lost their jobs, and small-business owners had to make the tough decision to stay open for takeout, close for now, or close for good — decisions that will shape cities around the world for years to come. It’s impossible to know what’s going to happen next, b...

Phone data on social distancing

In a world where just about everything is traceable, it does not come as a surprise that Americans’ cell phones are now a great way to track who is self-isolating and social distancing. Unacast, a company that collects and analyzes phone GPS location data, just revealed its “Social Distancing Scoreboard” that shows which residents around the country are actually abiding by the behavior encouraged by health officials. Unacast compared current location data to data collected on a typical pre-p...

Asian grocery stores during COVID-19

In the United States , we’re used to being able to get pretty much whatever we want, whenever we want it. Think about the last time your WiFi went out when you were trying to cue up Netflix, and you’ll know exactly what I mean. Which is why this past week, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, was especially unnerving for a lot of people, who went to the store to pick up a few items they can usually find on-demand and found literally none of what they were looking for. Not just toilet paper...

Sex during coronavirus pandemic

Governments across the world have told us we should minimize contact with others to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It’s pretty much impossible to practice ‘social distancing’ with those we share beds with, so where does sex feature in all of this?

Exercising outside while distancing

If ever there were a time to be a couch potato without feeling guilty or unproductive, it’s now. But staying home doing nothing gets old pretty quick for those used to being active outdoors, particularly when spring has sprung and the sun is shining over your favorite local trail.

Queer events you can attend online

As the coronavirus pandemic alters daily life, queer events around the world are getting canceled, but there’s one event COVID-19 can’t touch: Couchella. That’s right — the hottest ticket in town is the house-party-of-one you’re hosting from your living room. Proximity doesn’t preclude us from gathering in the digital age. While it’s necessary to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the coronavirus, a social recession doesn’t need to be the byproduct of staying safe. Whether you ...
