“Fencing: The perfect Covid-19 sport. 1. masks 2. gloves 3. closer than 6ft, you stab them”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic saw people play many indoor games, but one sport was suggested by some people as especially appropriate.

“Best sport for the pandemic? Fencing! You get to wear gloves and a mask, and if anyone gets within 6 feet you stab them!” was posted on Facebook by Richard Bielak on April 29, 2020. “Fencing is perfect COVID 19 Sport 1) Masks 2) Gloves 3) If the opponent gets closer than 6 feet to you, You Stab them” was posted on Twitter by Nava Mohan Rao on May 1, 2020.

We should all pick up the sport of fencing during the lockdown. You wear masks, you wear gloves, and if anyone gets closer than 6 feet you stab them.

We should only allow fencing to reopen for sports. It reinforces a good social message:
1.  All Athletes in Masks
2.  All Athletes Wear Gloves
3.  Anyone gets closer than 6ft you stab them
