Pro wrestling events across the planet are shutting down due to COVID-19. Things are getting better in China and Japan, but it took a lot of work to contain the virus.
America is learning from other countries about how to deal with COVID-19. Now that China’s last emergency hospital is closed and Japan’s cases are slowing down, we could follow their lead.
Stardom is letting fans attend their March 24th event. The one-night tournament will require fans to take a medical screening prior to taking their seats.
Fans in attendance at Stardom’s Cinderella tournament will have their temperatures checked before being allowed in the building. In a statement, the company announced:
“Fans will be allowed entry to the show, but will undergo a physical check, with their temperature taken. No entry will be allowed if temp is over 37°C (98.6°F). Masks will be distributed for free.”
This might be a sign of what American pro wrestling fans should expect once events are allowed to take place once again.
The COVID-19 problem will eventually be contained, but it will be a very long time before people don’t need to worry about it. Life will carry on, but life might also change a bit. Getting your temperature checked before attending a public gathering might just be a part of the post-COVID-19 world.
