If you’re a music lover, one of the biggest crowd gatherings in your life may be CONCERTS.
Well, Zeke Emanuel, director of the Healthcare Transformation Institute at the University of Pennsylvania says that we could be waiting a long time until we can go to things like concerts and sporting events again.
Maybe a year.
Maybe even longer.
In his opinion, getting back to the “norm” as I like to call it, must be done in stages.
Here’s his thoughts:
“It does have to start with more physical distancing at a work site that allows people who are at lower risk to come back. Certain kinds of construction, or manufacturing or offices, in which you can maintain six-foot distances are more reasonable to start sooner. Larger gatherings — conferences, concerts, sporting events — when people say they’re going to reschedule this conference or graduation event for October 2020, I have no idea how they think that’s a plausible possibility. I think those things will be the last to return. Realistically we’re talking fall 2021 at the earliest.”
So it may be longer than we would like until our next experience of getting super close to people we don’t know while sweating it out and rocking out to our favorite bands.
Until then, at least we have radio.
