Indoor dining: 50%; outdoor Yankee Stadium: 10%; huh?

BRONX, N.Y. — The COVID-19 pandemic has been rough on virtually everyone. Add onto that the stupidity of anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers, and random government restrictions and vaccination criteria and it’s that much worse. When it comes to watching baseball, it depends on what state you live in if you really want to attend a live game.

Some places like Texas are allowing 100% capacity, while New York is presently at 10%.

Mind you we’re a few weeks away from Opening Day but here’s the rub with me. Today, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced indoor dining capacity will increase to 50% on March 19 in New York City and 75% in the rest of the state. CDC recently cited indoor activities, especially indoor dining, as one of the worst things you can do, especially with 51% of new NYC cases stemming from variants.

Yet, if you want to eat outside at a baseball game, the capacity is limited to the above-mentioned 10%. So, in a spread-out Yankee Stadium that fits more than 50,000, somehow you can’t spread people out to watch the New York Yankees play outside with more than adequate airflow.

How does this make any sense?

We can all argue on the capacity percentage size but it seems awfully inconsistent if you ask me.
