Especially if I were... like are they going to open closed spaces? Because I think that's not responsible at all. I think that if you are in and out, that's OK. But to stay there I think it's very dangerous. I would avoid it for sure." COUPLE WALKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) PHILL KATZ, NEW YORK RESIDENT, SAYING: "I'm very to myself to begin with. I don't party anymore because (of) bills and all that. So I don't go out that much anymore. But I think what people are doing, I like what they do with outside seating, things like that. You have open air. You're not congesting people. I think that's good. I think as long as they pay attention to the numbers. Me personally, I wear my mask, sanitize, do all the protocol. But on top of that, I also try to avoid going out if I don't have to."
