Fans Return to NPB

The Japanese professional league, the NPB is now allowing 5,000 fans to attend games. This despite an increase to 243 corona virus cases reported in Tokyo. At this point the United States would love to see a count of 243 cases in some of their largest cities in California, Florida or Texas. The league is hoping that by August 1 they can fill their stadiums to half capacity.

Prior to entering the stadium the fans were given temperature checks and encouraged to use hand sanitizers. They were required to wear masks and sat in seats spaced apart from each other, even if they came with their families. Exuberant cheering was also discouraged, which meant no high fives, singing or shouting. Clapping and air high fives were allowed.
