You shouldn’t be reaching out and touching anyone right now. Murphy’s Irish Bar in Corralejo, Spain, has banned the NEIL DIAMOND song “Sweet Caroline” in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. The issue is they don’t want anyone scream-singing along to the classic song, as doing so could spread coronavirus droplets that could get others sick. The bar posted a sign, which has since gone viral on social media, that references the popular song’s lyrics, and reads, “Due to COVID-19 ‘Sweet Caroline’ is banned. There will be no: touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you.”
