> Boothless is also common in North America:

Just to complicate matters, Wikipedia refers to phones with acoustic hoods,
even minimal ones, as booths.  See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_booth  It may be just me, but I
think that's stretching the term "booth"
a little too far.  Perhaps we need booth=not_really_a_booth_just_a_hood.

Actually, the wikipedia article on phone booths cited above has a photo of
phones which are not in (what I'd call)
a booth for which covered=yes is actually appropriate.  Doubly so, in
fact.  The phone installation has a cover and
it's also under building=roof.
