Coughing on or near them and, of course, we know talking to another player's disc in flight is a no-no.

No ring of fire/other ancillary activities?
Online payout instead of a bum-rush of ams going to the merch vendor?
Some things that we will do for our A Tier https://www.discgolfscene.com/tourna...ournament_2020 Shameless plug.....

Player packs to be handed out on Friday, at a different course. Which is a day before the tournament. We will run a flex singles there, packs and tournament run most of the day. Avoids player pack crowds. https://www.discgolfscene.com/tourna...in_Around_2020 Nuther shameless plug....

Extensive caddy books and OB defining scorecards. Cutting down the time and need for an long players meeting.

Bringing along the PA system, encourage folks to spread out during players meeting.

Bottled water on the course, not jugged water. Not in line with the PDGA's "Green Initiative", but we think a smart move.

As always player payouts as soon as the division finishes and scores are tabulated. Decreasing the mad rush to the payout tables. Also gets people out of there. Less hanging around, in general.

Hopefully hand sanitizer available (if it can be found) and a quick reminder of card hygiene etiquette.

We do cashless prereg only.

Looks like our city's first tournament of the year might have to be cancelled. OH governor just banned mass gatherings of 100+ people. We had 105 registered

Y'all have got it wrong. When I taught school I didn't get sick for years---because my system was always ramped up to deal with being around large and varied groups of students (this works for hospital personnel too). Now that I'm in the woods firefighting and for recreation I get colds more often when I get back around people , and had the flu last about 3 years ago.
Being 61 though, I really don't want the coronavirus. Bro and I are avoiding enclosed places with groups, except the grocery. And the liquor store.

Last week had an almost 1,000 person event cancel with more coming in on a daily basis.

Large indoor soccer tournament (600 plus) just cancelled for this weekend based on the County Health Department directive.

Some groups are cancelling into May.

I'm seriously concerned for my staff's financial well being.

There is a little bit of science deep down in this anecdotal post. It is not all as simple as you post and there are a LOT of additional factors that come into play.

That's not the case.
Quote:
Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton signed an order today banning gatherings of more than 100 people, the governor said. The ban does not include grocery stores, forms of transit, athletics events that exclude spectators, weddings, funerals or religious gatherings, DeWine said.

Hard to fathom business likely to be more affected than this. Given the situation, I can't imagine anyone following through on any sort of event that's supposed to bring a large # of people together in close quarters.
