Develop a live streaming app that connects local customers to businesses in their area. This will enable the safety of social distancing, yet allow the same personal interaction that used to take place.  The main advantage of local shops, restaurants, etc... is that personal touch.  This can be regained through a simple live video chat with the owner/workers showing their service.
