COVID Spurs Re-segregation of Baseball

Segregation is back, baby!

The Associated Press reports that the Mets and Yankees have separate seating for vaccinated and unvaccinated fans.

“We’ve been polling our fans. I think the majority are vaccinated rather than unvaccinated who are coming in. And hopefully those numbers continue to rise. But we will have separate sections and accommodate all our season ticket holders, make sure that they’re fine, and other people coming in.”

Newly sold tickets will be specified as vaccinated or unvaccinated sections.

Why would vaccinated people not be safe around the unvaccinated, especially outside?

It’s almost like the vaccines don’t work.
