Somerville, Massachusetts, has become the first city to recognize polyamorous relationships:

“[T]he city council of Somerville, Massachusetts, voted last week on an ordinance as a means of helping unmarried residents visit their partners in the hospital if they’re sick with coronavirus. Ahead of the meeting, it was suggested that the ordinance should also include partnerships of more than two people. Partners would not be required to live together or inform the city of a change of address. […]

‘Folks live in polyamorous relationships and have for probably forever. Right now, our laws deny their existence and that doesn’t strike me as the right way to write laws at any level,’ [Somerville Mayor Mayor Joseph Curtatone] said.

‘Hopefully this gives folks a legal foundation from which to have discussion. Maybe others will follow our lead.'”

It’s too early to make out with strangers. When can we do that again safely? At Vice, Meredith Balkus investigates:

“”This is a new situation, but people have been having conversations around STIs and HIV for a long time. It’s just that it’s going to look a little different now because we’re adding in this new virus, and the conversation has to happen earlier,” Julia Marcus, an infectious disease epidemiologist and assistant professor in the department of population medicine at Harvard Medical School, told VICE. “The ‘safe sex’ conversation has to happen before you have that innocent kiss on the first date—kissing is now high-risk in a way that it wasn’t before, and even just sitting close to somebody there’s a risk.” Based on the guidelines from the department of health, having actual sex is now safer than kissing.

“I think it’s probably most important to talk about what somebody has been doing for the past two weeks,” Marcus continued. The two-week period is when you’re most at risk of being contagious after being exposed to the virus, so evaluating it is crucial. “In general, what are their social distance practices? How are they approaching this whole pandemic? Who else are they living with, who are they exposed to?””
