Sports leagues welcome reopening of stadiums, prepared for safe fan experience

Although there are a host of caveats (no food, no drink, no… cheering??) stadiums are set to reopen as early as this coming Friday.

Update with details: cheering heavily restricted, enforced distancing, can’t bring in outside food, limited concessions (can’t eat in your seat), no alcohol, no smoking rooms:

So this still hasn’t happened. A recent spike with several days with >60 cases per day (I know, that doesn’t sound like much, but it is higher than the baseline) is making local governments nervous about allowing fans back into stadiums. We shall see…

(Most) stadiums finally reopening in two days, at only 10% capacity:

Bumping up to 30% capacity starting with next week’s games.
