Even worse - there are plenty of essential jobs, essential construction, factories - the men can work together in close quarters for 8 hours, but would get massive fines if they were found drinking a beer together after work.
It's hard to get fined for being in a bar when they are all closed.
It's just stupid to think that people can't social distance in a gym but they can do it in a liquor store.
Gym equipment gets covered in sweat and rarely cleaned properly after each use. Plus someone will likely want to use the machine right after you. Prolonged time with heavy breathing in the same space.
A liquor store is just people walking by each other for a second. Not touching the same items. Not sweating all over grips and benches.
Not that either one is warranted necessarily but they are logically very different environments.
