Terrible censorship but what if the video was about injecting a disinfectant into your body? Where do you draw the line?

Which line? For professionals or laypeople? I don't think there is a "line" in a controlled scientific environment.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

That sounds like a line to me. Allow videos of controlled scientific tests.

Should staying in a hotel be avoided now? Would you stay in a hotel in these days in the US?

Why would you stay in a hotel as opposed to staying home?

To be in a hotel room thats smaller than home? If youíll be doing anything touristy, or even food wise, it sounds like a bad move.

Also, how are you going to get there? How will you disinfect your entire room? Can you really socially distance the entire time, narrow hotel hallways, lobby etc.

So are you saying from now on you need to disinfect your entire hotel room?

The virus will only last a few days in a hotel room, but you donít know who was there just before you.

essential travel if you want food products. I have the same question.
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

Change of scenery perhaps?

You mean for your work in food production? Thatís not a leisure trip.

Find a way to create an equivalent state of mind for the same money without leaving the house? The bottom line is that leaving the house for any reason that isnít essential is a bad idea. If youíre going to go anywhere maybe go camping?

If we all flocked to hotels it would prolong the crisis for everyone and cause unnecessary spread. If you feel your psychological duress is significantly greater than the average person, discuss this with your therapist and primary care physician and maybe they will determine that  itís the prudent thing to do in your case.
