    Lays it off then brilliantly holds his run specifically hoping for a rebound.

    Highlights, according to me. Mandatory temperature checks. If you fail you are denied entry. Mandatory face coverings. STadium opens 90 minutes early and ticket holders get told which gate and when.
    Capacity is described as “up to 50%” so probably it will be considerably less, and right now there is not yet any sale of individual tickets. Season ticket holders will all be accommodated first. Those seats will be re-assigned to create appropriate social distancing.
    Concessions will all be wrapped and lidded, and transactions will occur via plexiglass shielding. No cash transactions. The article does not say how you are supposed to drink a beer through a face mask.
    Sons of Ben membership packages might include face masks with built-in straws, after the hoodies with the built-in beer bottle holding slot they had a few years ago? 😉
    AS you would expect extra effort will be made to deep clean and maintain points of shared contact such as handrails.
    There is no discussion of restroom procedures, which strikes me as a major oversight since — following Outback Steakhouse from several years ago — restrooms could easily be labelled the “Used Beer Department.”
