Has anyone done an in person coffee chat since COVID started?

Analysts, how likely are you to meet up with someone during COVID for a coffee chat? Have you done it or do you just offer after every call? 

I'm a 22-year-old consultant trying to break into banking posting on a throwaway. I need to build these connections but I'm also not trying to catch COVID.

Why do you have to post on a throwaway if you're already anonymous?

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." - Bruce Lee

why are you afraid of catching covid as a 22 year old, to the extent you are hesitant to meet people for coffee\

look at the 22 year old death rates or the college student death rates

Ive been meeting several people. if you are under 50 year old you have nothing to worry about
