Ummmm cute and all that, and I know I am stating the obvious, but where is the social distancing?

And don't tell us that Asians don't embrace and that's a major reason coronavirus cases are low here.

People really need to have more common sense.

Ah, but common sense is uncommon.

Not the message we need to be receiving right now.

Before you shout social distancing, consider these two are most likely partners and might just be living together. It's impossible to distance themselves. Or they are't and just don't care.

A cute young couple not panicking as much as everyone else!?

They deserve jail.

Maybe they could find more romantic place. Not some any full crowded background.

Uh, the masks....highly unromantic. Get those things off your faces. Just wash your hands after all the lovey dovey.

If those two young people are a couple and neither is sick, why the masks? I have to laugh, wondering how they kiss.

Masks and headphones, not partners but more likely Junior Hs or Hs graduates, could be the last picture taken for a while from this spot??

Love in the Time of Coronavirus.
