I agree that solutions that can be implemented on a mass scale with the general public have flaws and vulnerabilities. We're facing a "best-effort" scenario, particular with the limited availability of proper gear (even if one knew how to wear them properly). The problem I see with primarily counting on checking temp and other symptoms is that people can be infected and can spread the virus for several days or so (reports keep changing) before they develop symptoms. Furthermore, while temp can be independently checked by a staff member, other symptoms are self-reported, and the accuracy of the self-report can't be verified by a staff member (unless the skater is flagrantly hacking or sneezing as he comes in).thanks for your entire post, the information within it was fairly accurate.
One point is that if your mask is not completely tight to the point of discomfort, then droplets can still escape from the person wearing the mask, rendering it almost useless. Even surgical masks are difficult to wear during intensive exercise if worn properly. They take temperatures and check symptoms, so that is probably the best thing they can do along with the system of having the same people each time.
Coaches wearing masks also good thing as they could wear properly.
The fact they take them off for programs also makes them worth less as it can spread if the person doing the program has covid.
I'll wait for your points about face shields before saying anything else
No one remedy will likely work at this stage; the hope is that a combination of imperfect remedies will lead to an acceptable overall level of control, as we await a vaccine or a successful course of treatment.
