And I'll get to the mask and distancing would eliminate the spread of this virus comment to because reality would say that the hypothesis is false.
So let's look at things with some logic - Europe locked down the hardest and is having a resurgence. Most of the US locked down and yet, come fall there is a resurgence. BTW - how many deaths from flu have we had to date compared to last year? Just wondering. So do lockdowns work? Well obviously when you hide away the virus can't spread but realistically how long can that last and you can't lock everyone down and certainly not forever so at some point, you will come in contact with it. Plus nearly everyone is now saying that kids need to be in school, not on a computer.
Now, to the mask discussion, (again there are scientists that can prove they do and don't work), the overwhelming majority of people are wearing masks when out and yet, we are seeing an increase in cases. So why aren't the masks working? And don't tell me the 1 person out of 20 I see in a store is the reason for the spread because the numbers don't add up.
Gonna throw out another logic example - was at an event several weeks ago. Mostly outside with several hundred people in attendance, some in close proximity for a period of time. Not a mask in sight. And not a super-spreader event. Now I know that outside matters but surely there would have been an outbreak at this event, except there wasn't.
You do you and have your fun with math. The logical, reality based approach is simply, ramming into each other repeatedly playing basketball is much more intimate contact than I have ever had sitting in a rehearsal or performance. Remember, those 10 basketball players are sometimes ALL within 10 feet of each other. Meanwhile the flute player is only near 2 or 3 other people at that range. Plus, they are stationary so the flute player is guaranteed to only be in contact with a few, consistent people that they have been in close contact with for months as opposed to that traveling team that invaded the gym. Distance matters like you said. So the percussionist in the back of the room isn't impacted nearly as much by the saxophone player on the second row as you would like us to believe.
Look - I'm all for sports resuming and am glad they are. I am all for the many number of things that have resumed now that the science has finally shown they should. And I really don't understand the "shut it down at any cost" mentality of some people who are willing to cost people health and jobs and whatever else and for what? When your job goes away, just remember whose fault it was. The coaches are pushing to show they still matter and can function. What are you doing to show your community you are worth the money they spend on your program? They might decide you aren't when all is said and done.
