Context matters. It’s not 8 players.

not really. It’s 8 people that share a locker room, bus, airplane, dugout. They are in close contact with each other. Doesn’t matter if they throw a little white ball or coach them how to throw a little white ball.

My preference for at least the rest of this season would be that masks remain required. I'm vaccinated, but regardless I'm going to be wearing a mask no matter what the state or businesses elect to do. If not so much for my protection, to protect others who cannot or elect not to get vaccinated.

Until the numbers are way the heck lower than they are now, even if my chance of infection and then spread to someone else is pretty low, out of courtesy to everone else vaccinated or not, I have no intention of ditching my mask wearing indoors in the near term no matter what the CDC says.

We don’t know who the support staff are, it could be people who don’t travel. Regardless, the J&J vaccine was 66.3% effective at preventing illness, it was approved because it had high efficacy at preventing hospitalization and death.


How Well the Vaccine Works​

  • The J&J/Janssen vaccine was 66.3% effective in clinical trials (efficacy) at preventing laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness in people who had no evidence of prior infection 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine. People had the most protection 2 weeks after getting vaccinated.
  • The vaccine had high efficacy at preventing hospitalization and death in people who did get sick. No one who got COVID-19 at least 4 weeks after receiving the J&J/Janssen vaccine had to be hospitalized.
  • Early evidence suggests that the J&J/Janssen vaccine might provide protection against asymptomatic infection, which is when a person is infected by the virus that causes COVID-19 but does not get sick.
  • CDC will continue to provide updates as we learn more about how well the J&J/Janssen vaccine works in real-world conditions.

It was reported on mlb network they were trainers.

As to the second part that’s pretty much exactly what I said in my first post so not sure what the argument here is…..
The vaccine is designed to help prevent but also make it less likely you get severe symptoms. Looks to have worked in that regard.

The office I’m working in requires masks in common areas but they can be removed in offices and conference rooms with the doors closed if all occupants are fully vaccinated. I was in a conference room the last 2 days and I’m squatting in an empty office today.

Luckily I work from home. I only need it when I go out, so admittedly much easier for me to deal with then most

Waddell says they still have to go by NHL rules Probably 10k to 12k but details probably tomorow
NHL rules would allow 13,000 or so ... but getting there with a couple of day's notice is a pipe dream. There's some equipment required, not to mention all the temporary employees they'll have to make appear from nowhere on short notice. Hopefully they had a heads up to get a head start, but even then ... we'll see.
