I agree, games in empty stadiums could be done. Test the participants & cameramen.. it would allow the pro athletes to do their jobs, and provide a televised product for a quarantined society.
I understand the desire to err on the side of caution, but if the tests are clean, what else do people want (?) We're asking untested food service workers to go out & work for minimum wage.. I think it's more than fair to allow/expect clean tested athletes who are often multi-millionaires, to work & entertain.

Untested grocery store & restaurant workers, delivery drivers for Amazon, UPS, Fedex, mail delivery are out there every single day.


Test the players every day, take temperatures and let them play without fans in the stands.

sanitize their vehicles and every frequently touched point.


People need sports to rally around & occupy their time since we're holed up.
