Re(1): PREDICTION regarding Jai Alai and other things.....

I see it pretty much the way you do, BB BUDS. Consider the following, as it applies to Dania Jai-Alai, which is scheduled to close, (I believe) on April 15:
1. The County or State orders casinos (and other places where large numbers of people gather), to close at a date prior to April 15. Will jai-alai continue at Dania, with no fans present, but with simulcasting and remote betting? If not, will the pelotaris still get paid their standard salaries through April 15? Note: if the pelotaris don't play, they will miss out on the extra money they get for coming in Win, Place, and Show.
2. The virus spreads (which it will), and the pelotaris get concerned since they are protected from their elderly, medically compromised fans by only the screen. Suppose they don't want to risk the virus, and refuse to play? If they must play to get paid, is that a violation of OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act)?
Something like this has a ripple effect, even in jai-alai. Lots more questions can be asked, which I'm sure other chalkies will do. Everyone be careful - there will be lots more jai-alai to view, and bet on, after the virus is over.
