Places that must reopen last according to MIT researchers

Stores are opening up again after the long lockdown. Yet, the question remains. Where are safe places? Where should we avoid?

In a recent Bestlife article, titled “6 Places That Should Reopen Last, According to MIT Researchers” a journalist Colby Hall shared some findings by MIT researchers that were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research was interesting in a sense that researchers “juxtaposed how different locations fare in terms of importance versus transmission risk.”

The list includes:

  • Cafes, juice bars, and dessert parlors
  • Gyms
  • Sporting goods stores
  • Bookstores
  • Tobacco shops
  • Liquor stores

These businesses might be more valuable than any others to some people. But I think this article alerts and reminds us about the fact that the risk of getting infected is still prevalent. Medical staff, researchers and other health-related officials are doing their best to control the situation for our world. What can you do? At least pay attention to their advice.

ACTION ITEM

  • Stay informed
    • New findings and research are being released everyday
  • Be responsible
    • Take necessary measures as advised by researchers
  • Check store websites
    • See what measures stores are taking before the visit

Stay safe, travel wise
