If I'm expected to wear a mask, I'm not playing chess.
There will also be those who say "If my opponent is not wearing a face-covering, I'm not playing chess". And they may well also say "It makes no difference if he has a medical exemption. That doesn't make him any less infectious".
That's fine - no one is forcing them to play chess

Stupid selfish people age 20-30 plus causing the problem.
Second time we've had this canard on here this week
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."

There are those who say both of those things, which is a perfectly reasonable position to take.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

No more ECF Membership Fees from my Club since last month. Not a lot of demand for online chess. No Members under 30. Pub is a long walk for most of us.

Of course, and any club, league or tournament for the foreseeable future is going to have to tell one or the other that they cannot be accommodated.
