Navigating the sea of advice and opinions during the pandemic has been a challenge to say the least, but one piece I keep returning to is this viral essay written by biologist Erin Bromage and recommended by The New York Times. Explaining how the virus spreads in a remarkably easy-to-read way, Bromage touches on everything from workplace setups and restaurants to visiting stores, where he believes the opportunity for infection is low. (Unfortunately, the same can’t necessarily be said for those working in the store all day.)
As always, hindsight will be 20/20, and there’s still so much we don’t know about Covid-19, but as stores I’ve sorely missed spending time in begin opening back up in Dallas, I took a little solace in Bromage’s words. Maybe you will too.
OK, enough science for now. Two weeks after Texas retailers were permitted to open at 25 percent capacity, more beloved boutiques have begun welcoming shoppers with new safety precautions. Here are a more Dallas stores you can now visit this weekend:
The charming Bishop Arts store is now open during the weekend, with newly expanded hours (noon to 6pm) on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
You can now see Ylang’s cool mix of designer jewelry IRL — the Plaza at Preston Center store opened early this week.
The high-end, Dallas-based store in Crescent Court is now open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
The designer-filled vintage and consignment store opened last week with limited hours (12 to 5pm daily).
