The photographs posted of archery tournaments indicate social distancing is merely a suggestion at these events. At 65 years old I’d like to avoid that asymptotic 28-year-old shedding Covid-19 while standing next to me.
Sure, I can play the odds and expect to win by not getting sick. Honestly, I suspect I’ve already had the bug. At this point I simply don’t know whether or not I carry the antibody.
Here’s the thing, if I do catch the Covid-19 I run a greater risk of sharing it with family and friends all over 70 and none in excellent health. When I suspected Brenda and I had contracted the virus we stayed clear of everyone. Our symptoms were so mild it is impossible to know for certain without being tested – at this point for the antibody.
So, for now, I am taking a break from competition.
