Missed educational opportunity on SNL last night

At the end of the cold open skit, when Warren meets her supporter (Kate McKinnon) they hug tightly. They also put their arms around each other for the trademark "Live from New York, it's...".
This skit will be viewed hundreds of thousands of people. It could have been an education opportunity on how to greet and have fun without hugging. If done well, it could have had an extremely powerful message about new standards in the midst of an epidemic, and not have appeared to be mocking the need for social distancing in any way.
That is how to create new social norms quickly in a way that sticks.
Imagine if it had even a fraction of the impact of Tina Fey's "I can see Russia from..." skit.
A missed opportunity.
