COVID seems to be a nonissue on tour.

COVID doesn’t appear to have been a problem on tour. If Deadheads are able to congregate without causing a breakout it says a lot about the effectiveness of the vaccines. Hopefully the tour will come to a safe conclusion.

A little early to tell what impact the tour has on people attending the shows in terms of Covid.

Maybe wait til after Florida and Texas to say that.

That said most people are vaccinated. There were quite a few people in st louis getting tests compared to the others I was at and there were some fake vaccine cards and st louis would have been super easy to get in without one if you tried. from what I've seen most everyone has got the Vax and that helps.

Looking at the audience. People wearing masks (some) and seeming to not be sneezing on each other. :mrgreen: Gonna take time to see if it's a spreader event. It should become known in the break 3 concerts away. If checking is accurate and covering all bases. Should be safe space. Only God knows what was in the Lot. :shock:

Funny
We’re what 16 shows into this leg of the tour
I sure most are vaxxed at the shows and for the most part our community are kind and take precautions so we are safe and healthy

I remember how sick I would get on tour back in the day. 4 or 5 shows in a row and I’d be hacking up a lung with tour crud. Now we wear masks. Maybe we should have all along.

Well, if there is one crowd that can actually kill a virus, it’s probably this one

Bug bites us, the bug dies. .... :mrgreen:

I gotta admit I thought this would be a train wreck. But I saw three shows and was quite impressed with how the Vax checks worked. I felt totally comfortable inside.

I did come home with a cold after the Hershey gig. Got a test to make sure and it was negative.

So, hat's off to DeadCo for doing it right and for our community for keeping it safe.

:clap :clap :clap

And with mostly legal cannabis, there’s a lot less sharing vapes, pipes and joints which, for now with COVID,is good.
