MLB will put crystals in parks to prevent COVID-19 infections

The preseason games in the MLB are about to start today Sunday and, with the return of the fans to the stadiums, all the Major League teams have placed crystals around the booths to avoid the contagion of COVID-19 among the players, technical body and staff.

The crystals in the stadiums are part of the health and safety protocols agreed upon by the players’ union and MLB management, according to the New York Post. The agreement between both parties establishes that, for the safety of the people involved in the game, there must be a “buffer zone” between the field of play and the fans present, which must be at least 3.5 meters between the first stands and the dogout.

In the event that any of the teams decides not to install the crystals, they will have to comply with that buffer distance by losing the opportunity to sell tickets for the first rows. The glass will replace that area, however, it needs to be at least 2 meters high and should not have gaps through which respiratory fluid particles can pass through. ( (GG)
