No distancing is crazy. No masks may be illegal.

But they weren't totally overboard.

Emmys: Attendees Will Be Required to Show Proof of Vaccination

On Friday, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences reiterated its previous plans that only nominees and their plus-ones will be invited to attend one of the three Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies on Sept. 11 and 12 and/or the main Emmy Awards ceremony on Sept. 19 — and declared for the first time that even they will not be let in the door unless they can show proof of vaccination.

This development comes at a time when the Delta variant of COVID-19 is circulating and prompted a new round of restrictions, including Los Angeles County once again mandating the wearing of masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.

I read that they not only had to be vaccinated but also have a negative C19 test.

Haven't you heard?

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

With everything we (meaning the medical community and CDC) that even should be reasonably low risk, meaning not that attendees can be sure they didn't get COVID, but if they did, the effects won't require hospitalization, etc.

My question is — were attendees influenced by the Emmy folks one way or the other about mask wearing?

I think the message to the non-vaxxed is what matters.

'Hey, they're not wearing masks, so that's okay'

If they had proof of vaccination as well as a negative covid test in the last few days I think that is perfectly fine. The likelihood that any of them would be hospitalized is slim to none.

Even if they were all wearing masks, the message that masking is good would be lost on most viewers of that ilk.

I didn't watch the Emmys, but maybe the credits, like those of Apple Events, detailed the efforts to reduce COVID transmission.

But that message would have been lost on them, even if they stuck around to read end credits.

"Hey, we're all vaccinated and careful about exposure when not among the vaccinated. If all of you watching did that, maybe you could enjoy a live show without a mask, too."
