How is NASCAR ensuring a safe race at Darlington?

As has been the case since last year, every spectator has to follow strict guidelines. Obviously, spectators have to wear face masks and have to wash their hands with soap and water. In addition to that, they have to maintain social distancing at all times, which also applies to the seating arrangement.

In terms of items permitted at the track, clear bags, hand sanitizer, sunblock, and other items are allowed. However, items like coolers, camera bags, aerosol cans, drones, and selfie sticks are not allowed at the race track. Even in terms of camping, the concerned parties have to maintain social distancing. There will also be designated staff to help sanitize any spectators when needed.

Having said all that, the United States is doing a remarkable job of trying to reduce the COVID spread. Even in the NASCAR paddock, there have been very few reports of a COVID-19 case, and even if there are, it is being handled efficiently.
