We’re back to the halcyon days of 2019.
After Nashville lifted their mask mandate, effective today, Triple-A baseball team Nashville Sounds will be ready to host a full capacity audience … no masks required.
The decision is an immediate response to updated CDC guidelines released Thursday ensuring Americans everywhere that risk of transmission not only continues to be a minimal threat indoors, but especially in outdoor venues.
While some teams and cities are still weary with easing citizens into the new maskless “norm,” Nashville is sticking to the science and allowing people to return to normal. More teams are taking notice and welcoming full capacity stadiums for fans to forget the troubles of 2020 and get back to celebrating the thrill of attending live sporting events.
Fans who have not been vaccinated are advised to wear a mask but are not obligated.
The move is bound to cause COVID Karens to cower in fear over leaving their masks behind to watch a baseball game, grab a bite, or watch a movie in theaters.
Nevertheless, these are the rules and showing up to the game without a mask is simply following the science.
