I've never used any gig economy service. I might start if these changes come to my state.
Uber is a life changer in cities where taxis aren't common and there's no great mass transportation. It makes going out to bars so much more simple and easy - no worrying about parking, no worrying about how much you're drinking, etc. Absolute life changer. Now that I'm in NYC I really only use them to get to and from airports, but in smaller cities, they drastically opened up my night life.
My city is compact and walkable. I have a car, but usually walk when I drink. I understand the convenience of it, esp in smaller cities, but hate the exploitation of all of these services, be they ride hailing, cleaning, etc.
To prevent CV-19, avoid the Serious Seven: weddings, funerals, faith-based activities, bars, gyms, house gatherings and other small events.
