What exactly *is* the reason outdoor events remain banned and shamed? (Transmission outdoors isn't just rare with distancing and precautions. It's.. just rare. Very few confirmed cases anywhere and not a single confirmed outdoor-only big cluster—after a whole year). @simonplittle@twitter.com

the reason is security theater (govs trying to look like they're "doing something") to distract from their pro-corporate policies (allowing non-essential businesses to reopen, not offering healthcare/ PTO/unemployment insurance) that actually do impact covid's spread
