(NewsReady.com) – With the rush to go back to “normal,” some people believe things will simply be how they used to before the coronavirus. Maybe that could be the case after a vaccine is developed. Until then, new polling data shows there won’t be a “normal” for a while.
A new Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals the anxiety Americans feel about heavily-populated entertainment centers before a COVID-19 vaccine hits the market.
A Reuters/Isos poll found that fewer than half of Americans plan on returning to sporting events, concerts, movie theaters and amusement parks until there is a proven vaccine https://t.co/ILSbqBLaQN https://t.co/nTQMA1dFEk

According to the poll, 59% of participants said theme parks shouldn’t re-open and 55% said the same about movie theaters, concerts, and theater performances.
Another interesting takeaway was that 59% think that games should go on without fans in the stadiums. That’s something the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is already doing. Wrestling is a sport that heavily interacts with the crowd. The most recent matches are a little surreal as demonstrated with this clip of Stone Cold Steve Austin attempting to (jokingly) interact with an empty arena.
It’s not the same without a crowd in WWE and it wouldn’t be the same without one for other sports. Still, over half of the country wants to see their favorite forms of entertainment continue. Though it wouldn’t be “normal,” it’d be more familiar than what we’re all going through right now.
