What? The NBA Is Going To Be Using COVID Dogs?


It just seems strange that there are so many restrictions right now with the vaccine already going into people’s arms.

We need to get back to normal as quickly as possible and at the end of the day, it just seems Draconian the things that people are being asked to do to go to sporting events.

The idea that there are going to be roving packs of dogs going around the stadium telling ppele that they have to leave is just absolutely mind-boggling.

The Miami Heat will begin utilizing canines to protect in-house spectators from COVID-19 transmission.

According to the Associated Press, “the Heat will use coronavirus-sniffing dogs at AmericanAirlines Arena to screen fans who want to attend their games.” The outlet reports, the policy is set to take effect before Thursday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers, when the Heat hosts its first game of the season with fans present. Attendance will be limited to about 1,500 season ticket holders.

The Heat released a video informing guests of the new procedures and what to expect upon arrival on game day.

“You’ll be directed to the screening area and asked to put any in-hand items in your pockets and place your hands at your sides,” the video says. “At that time, a COVID-19 detection dog will screen everyone in line by simply walking past each person…If a dog signals on you by sitting down, you and your group will be directed out of line and denied entry into the arena.”

The Heat will reportedly require all attendees to complete a health screening questionnaire, wear face coverings, and engage in cashless transactions at the concession stands, where only soft drinks and water will be sold.
