And look at that, you were able to write something actually constructive and nuanced. Many of the examples you cite are indeed the result of inconsistent responses with misplaced priorities, and I'm as baffled as you are at why restaurants have started building outdoor sheds with walls and a roof that are, at best, indoor structures with large windows, which is somehow okay.
But the examples you cite are also of people saying "yes" to all kinds of nonsense without fully thinking it through, based on inconclusive science, fueled by the fear of an economic meltdown. Really, what you offer us is an argument for saying "No" more often than we currently are.
And good God, I hope you're wearing a mask when you go to IKEA, as I'm sure you care about your fellow human beings enough to want to protect everyone's health. (Though, perhaps I wrote too soon, having read your response to ryhog... I sure hope your luck holds out.)
