You are confounding personal perspectives with epidemiological ones. As many of us have known since March, individual action can result in avoidance of the virus. That is the signature point of masks and distancing, handwashing etc. But our government has a different and very hard job, which is to save others (including the helpless) from themselves. Because there are still stupid people in this country (hello North Dakota!) there must be control. Much of Asia solved this riddle before it even got going. We didn't. We had people talking about finding ways to say yes and that's why we are looking forward to a "horrible" winter. It's sad but true. You think you have figured out all of these inconsistencies but you are a tyro. Data drives what is allowed and what is not. New York has the best numbers of any state of meaningful size and shape because of that. As I said, the positivity in my zip code in 1.5% (double from what it was a month ago, but still low enough to let things happen). We have had a very festive summer, but we also have to be smart, and Broadway theatres are not smart. Oh, and those "shacks a lot of restaurants built that not everyone understands? Read the regulations: if the are not open on 2 sides, they are indoor seating. That lets a restaurant increase its indoor capacity but if we end up shutting indoors down (as we have done in the zones with higher infections - which, incidentally, are nonetheless a fraction of North Dakota or most everywhere else in this country). It's a calculated risk that didn't seem as risky a few weeks ago.
