Dead Drop PanPals (pandemic pals)
A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items or information between two individuals using a secret location, thus not requiring them to meet directly and thereby maintaining operational security. In the time of plague, we could make dead drops of: letters, small items of interest, collages, photos, etc. Follow all possible contagion-avoidance methods (prepare your drop item with gloves on; place it in plastic so the recipient can get it home and open it with vector control protocols). With your pal, set a drop schedule and locale, then make a package, tape it under some bench or put it beneath a public planter somewhere or stick it in a hole in a tree, then your recipient can come pick it up. Don’t let anyone see you! Don’t run into each other! This is spy shit! Be sneaky.
