If you watched the inauguration of President Biden (seems a good chap) what did you think of it and did you feel there was far too much hugging going on on the podium in this time of pandemic?

Yes Holly, I too was very surprised, shocked even, at the lack of social distancing and other basic measures too.
For instance, they were all touching the stair rails.

I have just seen another post on the inauguration, so apologies,
but not sure if it mentioned hugging.

I did and I thought it was the wrong thing to do but I admit to feeling a bit jealous and when I get hold of my daughter and GS I shall squeeze and squeeze and squeeze.

We have become very aware of distance, touching, hugging, talking etc. I won’t be changing these parameters even afterwards.

Was there any sort of guidance about social distancing during Trump? Seriously, do they know it is not advisable?
They were all swathed in enormous masks.
