Snippet: "There’s little evidence establishing movie theaters as a source of outbreaks, even before social distancing practices were widely implemented. While that doesn’t mean they carry no risk, public health experts say the likelihood of contracting the virus while moviegoing is probably lower than that of many other indoor activities.
“In a setting where we’re not talking, we’re just passively breathing and wearing masks, it might be a safer bet than a noisy, crowded bar,” Jade Flinn, a faculty member at Johns Hopkins Medicine who trains nurses at its biocontainment unit, told Quartz. “At movie theaters, if you’re not eating popcorn, you’re just sitting there with your mask on.”
Flinn added that because theatergoers all face the same direction, that, too, reduces the chances of person-to-person transmission, as long as they’re still social distancing." https://qz.com/1862622/how-movie-theaters-can-safely-reopen-after-covid-19/
