Infosnips With the coronavirus surging and the risk of infection greater indoors, the world is taking its business—and pleasure—to the streets, parking lots and stadiums.

Around the world, hundreds of millions are still under guidelines to stay at home whenever possible. But there’s a growing need—and itch—to head out to shop, vote, exercise, enjoy a drink and have a little fun. As it’s become clear that the virus spreads more easily indoors, businesses and services are getting some fresh air.

Suddenly, options have materialized all around us: Dining in the street, Pilates under geodesic domes, drive-through pet care and parking lot nightclubs. It’s classic entrepreneurial ingenuity, born of necessity, and guided by the new normal.

Jennifer Romas, who produces, directs and stars in the show, said the cast and crew quarantined for 14 days in order to do the show away from its usual venue at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, which reopened last month. The Westgate Cabaret, home to the topless revue since 2015, is not allowed to open under Phase 2 of Nevada's reopening plan. On Monday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed an emergency directive extending Phase 2 through the end of July due to an upward trend of COVID-19 infections. Since the pandemic caused Nevada resorts to close their live entertainment venues in mid-March, Las Vegas entertainers have taken their acts online or to drive-in sites to entertain people while complying with the state's phased reopening restrictions.
