The business model of many large industries is built on sharing common experiences, including breathing the same air. The backbone of the live event, fitness, hospitality, and travel industry (to name a few) is built on that shared experience.

Without UI, people are being asked to choose work or possibly their life, and, in some cases, the life they are risking isn’t their own.
