What Next: The Future of Covering Sports During The Pandemic

->> We just updated the Sports Shooter Academy YouTube channel with two videos discussing covering sports during and after the coronavirus pandemic. Keith Birmingham and Jose Carlos Fajardo join USA TODAY's Robert Hanashiro in exploring what the situation is now and what could happen in the future:

->> So we are almost 3 months out from the above video conference. Could we get a follow up on what all has happened in the last 90 days or so? I would like to compare your all's experiences to my own.

->> It's now about a year after the video linked to up above was posted. I was wondering two things (actually many more, but two stood out).

First, over all this time and dealing with the pandemic, how did all this work out? Just a few weeks ago, the pandemic was starting to feel like "history", but now in July/August 2021 it's starting to feel quite scary again.

My other thought was wondering how each of you is doing your best to keep yourself safe. The obvious answer is to get vaccinated, and I'm guessing everyone of you has done that, but it has starting to seem like even vaccinated people are coming down with "break-through infections".

As an outsider, it seems to me that if I was one of the people photographing, I'd be wearing a mask the entire time, but I suspect I'd be in the minority. Thirty minutes into the video, there's a still shot of many photographers - but not one is masked. With the title of the video being "What Next: The Future of Covering Sports During The Pandemic" why aren't the photographers wearing masks?
