      Allow full capacity but to get in you have to have proof you’re vaccinated. It would be nice to know the guy screaming behind is vaccinated and unlikely to be spreading Covid.

      No wait, better idea. Yellow felt stars pinned to your shirt if you’re not vaccinated.

        Don’t be silly. Businesses and other entities have every right to require masks and/or vaccines.

            It’s a horrible law. Let local leaders decide what’s best for their people. What do you expect from the clown show in the Utah Legislature though?

                State legislators should let counties decide what’s best for their people. Some clown from Kanab shouldn’t decide what Salt Lake should do when it comes to Covid.

                When it comes to things like pademics and how to protect themslves, most people aren’t smart enough or educated enough to know what’s best. Also, their actions impact other people. Much of the pandemic was spread by clowns thinking they were smarter than health experts so they ignored the warnings and held weddings and other indoor large gatherings.

                As a result, hundreds of thousands of people died or experienced serious health issues. A marathon runner in his early 40s in my neighborhood had to get a lung transplant after getting Covid last year.

                Adding to this, there was a lot of misinformation being spread by the likes of Q-Anon and his disciples. Remember when Donald Trump said to drink bleach to treat Covid for God’s sake.

                So yeah, legitimate health experts shoud get the say on how to deal with it.

                  Weird how Texas’ covid numbers disappeared after dropping all mask mandates statewide right?

                  Also, you could consider me one of those “stoopid conspiracy theorists” because I think I know better then the government and have interacted with thousands of other unvaccinated people over the last year. I have never had a single symptom, my wife tested positive but her only symptom was a loss of smell, and that was after she had hundreds of pulmonary embolisms in her lungs 5 months prior, and neither of us or anyone we have ever been around has died. I must be Will Smith in I Am Legend or something right bro??

      How about if you’re afraid of getting covid 19 in an outdoor venue after you’ve already been vaccinated, you stay home and watch the game on TV and don’t try to tell other people to inject experimental and unapproved vaccines into their body?

        I’m not telling anyone to inject vaccines into their bodies. I know some in the conspiracy theory crowd doesn’t want it.

        But if you’re going to be in a venue with thousands of people, it’s better for everyone if most/all folks are vaxxed.

          I was unaware that it was a conspiracy theory that the Covid vaccine is approved for use as an emergency drug only, and has not met the criteria for full FDA approval. i.e. it’s still experimental. That’s a conspiracy theory? I thought it was fact. /shrug.

          Apparently the down-voters are unaware of the definition of “fact.”

              The vaccines have emergency authorization – not approval. Please stop spreading vaccine misinformation. 

              The experts at the FDA are unable to provide approval because there does not exist enough data on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines yet. That makes those talking the experimental vaccines test subjects. 

              Trying to withhold participation in free society to coerce people into participating in a pharmacy trial is morally reprehensible. 

              You have no facts to refute anything I’ve said so you’ll resort to childish name calling of “conspiracy theorist” and smugness. Everything I’ve said is easily verifiable by reading the FDA label on the vaccines.

                Pfizer/Biontech submitted their application for full FDA approval on May 7, 2021. You are correct the vaccines only have EUA currently, but rapid progress is being made for full FDA approval in the coming months. Moderna is approximately 1 month behind Pfizer on the same pathway.

                  Thanks for posting good information. It won’t matter much sadly when not if full approval happens. Anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists will still spread misinformation and continue to fight science.

                  I guess 48 more months until full approval is the coming months alright.

      Just read through this all and I don’t see after all that time and the various facts you each pulled from where either of you changed the other’s mind. Don’t feel bad our country has spent a little over a year participating in the same futile exercise. How about this idea instead? Those people who believe in the vaccines and masks show up at the stadium confident they are protected and those people who believe it’s all a hoax and that they are protected also show up at the stadium. We both cheer for our team, laugh and live while respecting that everybody may not be the same as we are.

        ^^^ this. I’m fully vaccinated but still wear my mask out. I just can’t get behind the vaccine passport idea because not everyone can get vaccinated. I don’t think those people should be forced to stay home. If you don’t want covid, get vaccinated and as you said, show up on cheer on the Utes knowing you’ll be ok.

          Problem is you can still get and potentially spread Covid even after getting vaccinated. While my risk of serious illness is very low being fully vaxxed, I actually care whether I spread it to others like you said to the folks who can’t get the shot like young kids. I know it’s a strange idea in America to actually consider the impact of my actions on others.

          Only way to defeat Covid is for folks working together masking up and getting vaxxed.

          If you really did proceed as normal without masking up or getting the vaccine, you may have had and spread Covid without even realizing it potentially hurting others. What are your thoughts on that?

            Bro…… If you’ve been vaccinated, then how the f**k can I spread covid to you?? Don’t worry about me or my health. You’re not my mother. Worry about yourself and your family. That’s it. You are safe because you have been vaxxed. I am not because I am not vaxxed. I am responsible for myself, and I am willing to “take the risk” and go to RES without a mask or vaccine. You will be ok, you cannot get covid now that you are vaxxed. Idk why this is so hard for people like you to understand???

            If I go to RES and spread it to someone and they die, they are the ones that were willing to take the risk of going to a packed stadium and facing any potential consequences. The same goes for if I go to RES and get covid and die. It’s not the fault of whoever spread it to me, it’s my fault for “taking the risk” and sitting and spitting and screaming around 50k people at a football game. You are free to go live in a dictatorial China or Russia or North Korea if you want, but f**k off if you are trying to bring that bulls**t to America.

        That’s fine and dandy and a nice thought but problem is the actions and the ignorance of the anti-mask / anti-vaxxer crowd are going to keep this pandemic going for who knows how long. Their actions impact everyone and they are largely responsible for the spread at this point. It’s annoying. I don’t feel like getting Covid.

        So you can’t really go sit around unvaccinated people without taking some pretty serious risks. Too bad we can’t divide up the stadium for the vaccinated and then have the anti-vax / anti-science crowd in their own section. We could incentivize this by giving out free Q-Anon shirts to the anti-vax Ute fans 🙂

          Being a scientist myself, I know the procedures on how to get approvals and /or published. I also know that there has been nowhere near enough time to get those done during this pandemic. Shortcuts were taken, necessarily in my opinion, with the run out of these vaccines. Will that bite us later? Not likely, but who can definitively say?

          The problems we have run into during this pandemic is that people like Fauci acted like he was the end all expert on this subject. He made numerous contradicting comments and flip-floppped all over the place. I believe he should have admitted that he wasn’t sure, and said something like this “This is what I believe is the best direction to take.”. Instead he lost half of us by constantly changing his recommendations.

          No one is sure if the mask mandates worked or not. The data is still out.

          Here’s my suggestion for the games. Fill the stadium. Allow everyone to have the free agency to wear masks or not, to be vaccinated or not, to attend or not. Summit has stated that people may be put at risk, maybe so. However, no one is forcing anyone to attend. We take risks every time we drive, go outside, interact during flu season……

          I hope everyone is allowed to make the choice they believe best suits them and I hope to see everyone who has tickets and wants to be there at the games.
