- Professional Athletes don't go out in populated public at the best of times.
- Chartered flights for professional teams who need to hit the road. No one else on the plane.
- In the unfortunate case of a player contracting the Coronavirus the player is ruled out much like if an injury was sustained except with much stricter measures. You don't shutdown the entire business. You will only hear about people dying in the media, not the ones who contracted it and recovered (It doesn't sell).
- Finally - The sport in question can still be played but in front of no fans. Yes empty Arenas and Stadiums. This meets broadcast, betting demands, keeps some people employed and KEEPS MONEY FLOWING ! WE ARE MOVING ! THINGS ARE HAPPENING ! until we get through this difficult period.
This is common sense which I understand is very difficult for figures of authority who earn hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars a year. The remarkable thing about these people are that they are highly intelligent and will understand, resolve complex issues. Its when they are confronted something simple they stand there stunned.
