“Outdoor Dining Bubbles”

“Dear PoPville,

I have started seeing a few of these outdoor dining bubbles pop up around town and am wondering what people’s thoughts are on this. While I am all for restaurants doing what they can to extend dining options and stay afloat during the pandemic, this seems like it’s bringing indoor dining ( and all of its pitfalls) outside. In theory these bubbles would be great if the party at the table is an immediate household, but that’s more the exception than the rule as far as what I am seeing people do here in DC.

Doesn’t enclosing a table greatly increase the risk of spread to those in the bubble? Also what about the service staff? Are they not exposed to an onslaught to a primordial soup of germs and recycled air when they come to your table? Am I missing something here? DO people prefer this? Anyone have any experience being inside one of these things? I’m so intrigued!”
