When Will Sports Start? – level 3

When and how can professional sports in the US resume play safely? Experts say that it depends on the sport and the spread of the coronavirus.

There are a number of health professionals who cannot wait for sports to come back. However, in the showdown between emotions and public health and safety, they need to support public health.

Plans on how certain sports resume play vary. Experts need to take into account whether the sports are inside or outside, how many people are involved, and the level of contact between players.

Some sports have already been able to resume their schedules, such as car racing or golf. However, there are strict social distancing measures. Experts hope that other leagues, such as Major League Baseball of the National Football League can resume, too.
