Football is a contact sport and masks are not going to help. Stupid Idea. You need to test the players and then let them play. They are young healthy guys and while they make get sick they are at a very limited health risk. Playing football is much more dangerous than the virus.

It is the older population that is at risk. Maybe the dopes that let people with the virus back into nursing homes should fix that problem so we can get back to football, baseball and Basketball with proper precautions for the fans. Keep the at risk population away from the games, temperature checks, masks and Sanitation stations should do the trick.

That's misleading though. The way to slow a virus like this, no matter who is vulnerable to it, is to slow the transmission. You only do that if everyone wears masks. It's a highly contagious virus and carriers can go for days without showing symptoms and still transmit (that's not true of the flu, for example...asymptomatic transmission is one of the troubling features of this). Either everyone wears mask to slow the transmission (and not just protect themselves) or the very vulnerable people you talk about have a much higher chance of getting the virus.

There is a lot of info on this. [ramsrule.com]

For example in NYC they were slow to wear masks so a city of 8.4 M had 28,000 fatalities from covid-19. Hong Kong is a city of 7.5 M and everyone there started wearing masks immediately--and they have had 4 fatalities from this. [ramsrule.com]

You can also be infected and transmitting it even with a negative test where you were just tested too soon. So a guy can test negative one day then positive the next.

People wear masks to protect OTHERS. Wearing masks has been proven to slow virus down and keep the numbers low, But unless a large majority of the population wears masks all the time whenever they are in public, it does no good. It's all in or nothing--and all in works, that has been proven.
