>>> All the unofficial video (phones, cameras, stills) strictly forbidden.
>>> Close-to-ice and 5 first chair rows considered the clean area, upper rows are the dirty area.
>>> Masks/gloves are mandatory for everyone.

Is Med back home in Russia? With the Covid crisis, I thought she might have flown home. In any case, I look forward to seeing how she does skating with all the young diva's

She's been there for a few months, I believe, since she can't get back into Canada right now. She's training at CSKA with Orser over video and Tarasova assisting in person.

The good thing about test skates this year is that I feel its going to be able to serve as a trial run for what competitions can look like this season possibly with spectators.

I don't see how "at some point we have to start living again" includes spectating sports. That is non essential. It's not someone's job to spectate sports, but I'll give that it's someone's job to sell tickets.

The more accurate statement would have been: At some point, we have to start doing away with safety precautions again.

But seriously. In a pandemic, "sometime" is not a very good scientific definition of when security measures are relaxed.

I wish Ted could comment them.. a girl can dream

I do not doubt that it would be if flights were not restricted by the epidemic. What is 99.9% certain is that it will be for the final of the junior and senior Russian nationals ... the expectation will be so high that even the Kremlin would send an IIlyushin Il-76 to Canada to transport it to Russia.

"At some point we have to start living again" really means keeping people safe is too inconvenient. They could have the test skates without an audience and with a livestream. They are just choosing not to. It's really irresponsible.

I think you forgot to clarify that this is just your opinion. I think that all people who are going to come to this arena are not irresponsible people, as well as the responsible persons of the Russian Sports Federation make such decisions based on the recommendations of the medical control authorities. You are not one of them, you cannot know that. No need to invent too much.

It's also the opinion of most major healthcare organizations and experts worldwide that large gatherings are not recommended at this time. Ignoring that is not responsible. Not that it matters but I work in healthcare (direct patient care) every day. I'm not going to argue with you so I'm just going to say I hope they are lucky and that no one gets sick from this event. I also wish all the athletes the best.
