New York to reopen auto, horse racing tracks without fans June 1

NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday that horse racing at tracks across the state and auto racing at Watkins Glen International will be allowed to resume June 1, but without spectators, as new Covid-19 cases and deaths across the state continue to flatten. The governor said he could even envision a return of Major League Baseball in the state, also without fans.

Essential work right there. Not a knock on racing but instead on hypocrisy. Guaranteed those racers won't be social distancing from their pit crews. They can't. Same with football and baseball. No fans but the players themselves will be in frequent contact with each other, both on the field and in the locker rooms. If a player gets coronavirus? Quarantined. The teammates who were in contact with him are aren't required to quarantine. This stay at home order is a joke.
