On another note I swiped this from Gencons page.. Food for thought.

0riginally they thought COVID had an R Naught of 2-3. It's actually 5.7. For comparison Ebola has a rating of 2, the measles has a rating of 18. What that means is one Infected person will infect 5.7 other people, each of those will infect 5.7....
For none of the 60,000 attendees to be exposed to this disease and get sick it would require 82% of the attendees to have immunity. That's 49,000 people. I don't think we're anywhere close that perentage yet in the general population.
So if my 4 beer math is correct :) let's say it makes it just thru 7 levels of spread from Attendee Zero. That's almost 35,000 people infected. The death rate here in Indiana is currently 5.5%
I'm not passing any kind of judgement, but if this were my Con there is no I would let 1886 people potentially die if I was told it was possible based on current models.

Actually it seems you do not. :) Though, Evil Lori heard me loud and clear. Pritzker just extended the lock down and you better cover your faces. Martial Law has come to your door step... Any cute snarky sarcasm you want to add?
