Also they should not gather more than 4 people from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. By the way, the Europe held uefa Euro-2020 and many people watched play without wearing masks.

    Have you ever heard of The Ivy restaurant?

Negatives

    We can use not … ever in negatives, but never is more common than not ever:

    He has not scored a goal ever. (= He has never scored a goal.)

    I have hardly ever eaten Vietnamese food. 

NOTE: We do not use "ever" in positive statements; however, we can use "ever so" if we want to add emphasis:

"Ever so" and "ever such"

We use ever before so and such to add emphasis:

    I feel ever so cold.

    He was ever such a kind man.
