Anyone else have this problem? After NER this past weekend, my wife and I both came down with some type of a sickness. It wasn’t a stomach virus, thank dog. But it was enough to shut the both of us down for the last couple of days, and we’re still not at 100%. It sounds like we weren’t the only ones either, which is unfortunate.
Now I’m no doctor or anything. But when you take a bunch of people from different parts of the country, throw them in a venue with poor ventilation and a lot of humidity, that’s a recipe for people getting sick. People from NY might not be immune to the germs carried by people from MA, and vice versa.
So with that in mind, what are some ways that players (and their relatives/friends) can prevent becoming ill after contests? Any ideas? I’m not too worried about outdoor contests, to be honest. I’ve never gotten sick after one. But indoor contests, especially ones where there is humidity and close quarters, what can be done???
