I JUST DON'T LIKE all these people sharing an unsanitized podium and microphone,

indoors, and the lack of social distancing at John Lewis' s funeral. I fear for their safety.

1. They sanitize and wipe down the podium after each speaker.

7. It's still indoors and sanitizer requires time to work, and they are in far too

great of a rushed pace for it to be either through or effective enough for my comfort.

2. I have to think that all precautions are in place.


It seems to be a very lofty church, just my two cents.

3. The latest information is that the risk of getting the virus from surfaces

is very small. If they wash their hands after speaking and don't touch their faces they will be ok. It is a bit concerning that some people are sitting closer than 6', but they are all wearing masks.

8. Indoors, laughing and singing. And these are surfaces shared by many. It's about viral load.

The surfaces are but one aspect.

4. You make a good point. The mic should be sanitized between speakers

5. I thought that too, at first

In the center row they are 6 feet apart. But they are probably the people in the same family or some reason like that.

I assumed that someone cleans the podium area off-camera between speakers. I hope so.

12. I agree with you Maru K

People are seated close together in the middle and back rows. Everyone is wearing masks but even so... the optics are bad. And then you have speaker after speaker going up to the same microphone. There is no plexiglass, no one is wearing gloves. Lord help us if any of the attendees get the virus. I fervently hope not.

I think they're all on top of all of this.
