This is no time to take time to smell the lilacs

Sign warns of Covid-19 risk from sniffing lilacs

Gedalia couldn't help but notice signs at the Arnold Arboretum today warning of the dangers of what is normally one of the joys of living in Boston - stuffing your face in lilacs at the Arnold Arboretum in May. As with some many other pleasures, it's now too risky, except perhaps, downwind, from at least six feet away.

Okay, that's just depressing.

Is there official guidance to stay 6 feet away from the lilacs? I thought it was 6 feet from people, and just don't touch stuff or wash your hands after you do.
