Social distancing rules include no walk-in options as well as limited viewings from hatchbacks and no viewings from truck beds until further notice. There are bathrooms available for one person to approach at a time with a mask on.

“If this is a deal breaker for you, then please wait till later in the year to come when we can safely allow that option again,” the Blue Starlite website reads.
