One good thing to come out of the pandemic: reservations everywhere

A few weeks ago, I visited the Seattle Kraken team store, where I was stopped outside for a routine COVID-19 screening. After having my temperature taken and answering a couple of questions, I was then asked for my ticket that showed I had a reservation for the 4:20 p.m. entry time.

Making a reservation to go shopping for hockey swag seemed at first like the sort of startling but minor inconvenience typical of the COVID-19 era, a way to reduce the store’s anticipated crowds so masked shoppers could maintain proper distance indoors. But as everything from team stores to museums, galleries, gyms, parks, and ski areas adopt similar reservation requirements this fall, it seems as if we are no longer witnessing a temporary phenomenon.
