Ok basement dweller. Who isn't running into crowds? I go to work (masks are optional), I take my child to day care (they don't wear masks), I visit friends, I golf, I grocery shop, I visit stores.
Literally the only social thing I am not doing this fall that I would usually do is attend an outdoor football game.
Is it a bad idea for a nursing home to buy a group of tickets in A-deck and take their residents during this? Absolutely.
But that doesn't make it a bad idea for a healthy 40-year old, let alone 30k healthy college students to attend football games.
There was a point in time when the Covid-19 death rate was thought to be 8%. That was March and it was based specifically off of the worst case scenario country - Italy, and a state that sent sick patients back to nursing homes - NY.
It is now nearly September and we know the death rate to be under 0.8% and to be lower than that of the flu for people age 0-30.
You want to stay home? Stay home.
But don't tell the rest of America to do the same.
