College Bar Packed With Students Fleeing Strict Coronavirus Guidelines
Hundreds of college students crammed into a tiny sports bar near the University of South Carolina campus, and it was apparently the perfect location due to the looser COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The TLC Sports Bar, just outside the city limits of Columbia, was face to face with the revelers on Thursday night, and as you can see … there was no mask in sight and no worries. of social distance.
This is the proverbial sardine-wrapped scenario, where people drink, talk, laugh, and sometimes cough or sneeze. None of this is good in terms of the spread of the virus.
Richland County, where the campus is located, reports 455 cases per 100,000 tests.
The adults in the room finally put an end to the potential super broadcast event … cops arrived and closed the bar, forcing hundreds of students to leave the room.
The bar is a short walk from Williams-Brice Stadium, where the university gained state approval for 20,000 fans in Gamecocks home games in a season shortened by coronavirus. The stadium has a capacity of 80,250 seats.
Maybe the students and the bar should take inspiration from the football situation. Full capacity is not a good thing these days.
The UofSC says it is “disappointed” by Thursday’s bar scene … urging students to cover their faces, distance themselves and avoid large gatherings in person. In other words, the opposite of what you see in the video.
