Schools, restaurants, and cultural centers are reopening to the public throughout Mexico, and the Mexican federation has followed suit with league matches in the top two divisions. So the final weekend of the Clausura will be played before the fans. It remains to be seen whether there will be restricted attendance or more separation between groups of fans; you can seat people two chairs apart in a movie theater, but it's much harder to do that in a sports stadium.
Well, according to this article on Medio Tiempo, that's exactly what the FMF in conjunction with the Health Ministry will do. Here are the following guidelines and restrictions:
- Stadium capacity limited to 50%
- All stadium fixtures must be disinfected (railings, seats, bathrooms, dressing rooms, etc.)
- Strict seating -- one seat occupied, adjacent seats empty (Families can sit together)
- No lines allowed to congregate at the gates or concession stands
- Anti-bacterial gel freely available
- Surveys taken at entrance to assess health of patrons -- ear thermometer guns were recommended but not required
The stadium capacity might be the easiest to enforce, although it might raise the ire of the fans. The cleaning of all of the stadium fixtures that come into human contact will take a lot of work, and should have started days ago. And I don't see how the stadium officials and police will be able to enforce the seating and congregating rules without having hundreds of police officers at each stadium. The barras are going to congregate and bang their drums and do their chants, are they going to break that up?
Basically, it comes down to this: if you feel like you might be coming down with something, STAY HOME!
