There are good reasons for those NOs.

Avoid eating inside restaurants because those who test positive are twice as likely to have eaten inside a restaurant in the previous two weeks.

You likely can't go inside the amusement park because they tend to have slow moving lines. In stores like Gap, people move around constantly and don't stay long.

You can't go into bars because, when people get drunk, they tend to stop socially distancing and wearing masks.

You can't go into any store without a mask because no store wants to become a nidus of infection for an epidemic. Plus, customers would avoid a store that doesn't require masks.

You can't go to a restaurant after a certain time (usually 10 pm) because inhibitions go down in the evenings, and people stop following public health rules. Again, many transmissions are traced back to being in bars/restaurants particularly after 10.

All of these rules make sense when you understand the science behind them. By ignoring the science and the rules, people are just prolonging the epidemic and the failing economy.

Vaccine will likely start being available to the general public around April/May. Everyone will have to take two shots about a month apart. There will be tons of anti-vaxxers (both on the right and the left politically), who may throw a wrench into everything. So, to immunize an entire population will take months. People will then have to feel comfortable traveling again and coming to NYC, which was the epicenter at the start because of its density.

I'm predicting that Bway won't get back to normal until about Fall, 2021, and I'm being generous. We will all likely still have to wear masks for a while.
