As the lifting of the obligation to wear indoor masks is approaching, the expectations of volleyball fans are rising. There are obviously voices of concern about the re-proliferation of Corona 19, but most volleyball fans are in an atmosphere that welcomes it.
From the 30th, the government will ease indoor mask wearing from ‘mandatory’ to ‘recommended’. From this day on, you can virtually take off your mask and go in and out of the room. However, public transportation, medical institutions, and facilities vulnerable to infection are exceptions.
It was in October 2020, at the beginning of the Corona 19 incident, that wearing a mask indoors was mandatory. At the time, indoor sports events in winter, such as professional volleyball and professional basketball, required wearing a mask to watch the game.
However, as the mandatory wearing of indoor masks is lifted from the 30th, it is expected that more heated cheering will unfold at indoor stadiums such as volleyball and basketball courts. The number of spectators, which has declined since the COVID-19 outbreak, is expected to gradually recover.
