If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

https://vosizneias.com/2020/07/23/new-psak-from-rabbi-shechter-regarding-washing-hands-on-tisha-bav/
"In other words one who is flippant and is careless about the other rules cannot say that he needs to wash his hands as protection against the virus. If someone is disregarding the other rules of the CDC, he cannot insist on this one, and washing would remain prohibited."

Is there such an halacha that one can't smoke before chatzos?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

many allow smoking on fast days, including Tisha B’Av (see e.g. shu’t Har HaKarem siman 19). The Chafetz Chaim (Mishna Berrura 556:sif katan #8) strongly disagrees and disallows smoking on any taanis, especially Tisha B’av by pain of excommunication! Others are lenient (see Yabia Omer 1:33 who allows one to be meikel in private).

You can wash your hand with alcohol jell, and even with water and soap if it's not for enjoyment but cleanliness. Minchas Asher

Only for shabbos.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
