It’s not the opening of the bars that’s to blame. It’s people wanting to believe they can do whatever they want without consequences.
Young People seem to believe they’re especially immune from both illness and the consequences of their actions. The big unintended consequence is likely to be the permanent loss of jobs and income, all because a large enough group of people can’t modify their behavior long enough to get past all of this.
Granted no one is certain how long enough will be, but opening and then re-closing and starting over sure as heck won’t make this go by any quicker.
