Fans Are Back

"Race fans stand for the U.S. national anthem at Delaware International Speedway on June 6, 2020 in Delmar, Delaware. Last week, Delaware International Speedway reopened without spectators for the first time since being closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to reports on their website, as a part of the agreement for reopening with the State of Delaware due to coronavirus, masks and face coverings were required, along with other safety measures, for all spectators entering the raceway."

Looking back since March, it's interesting how quickly things have changed in both ways from the start of the Coronavirus. 

Early during the pandemic, fans were barred from attending all sporting events.

In the first week of June, I discovered that Delaware International Speedway would allow fans to return to their raceway. This was marked with those in attendance would be required to wear masks and face coverings if entering the raceway to help prevent the spread of the pandemic.

To my knowledge, it was one of the first times fans were allowed back to watch action. Yet now, about two and half months later, leagues are working on either getting fans back or already have had them back.

The new normal is still being sorted, but looking back at this, it was an interesting evening.
