Six months into the coronavirus pandemic, the curve has flattened and deaths from the virus are down, but closures and various rules still remain in place, even at the Liberty Bowl where the Memphis Tigers beat Arkansas State 37-24 Saturday.KWAM co-host of ‘The Real Resistance’ Sherrie Hopper had a ticket to the big game. She tells ‘Wake Up Memphis’ with Robyn Walensky what was it like to be inside the stadium with all the new rules aimed at keeping the virus from spreading.
“It was just very bland, we were herded in like cattle, then we had to sit 12 feet apart,” Hopper says. “The bathroom was really eerie too, they had every other sink wrapped up in plastic bags, and the team members were not allowed to run out of the tunnel, it was just really odd.”
The coronavirus craziness involving many rules continues outside of the Liberty Bowl as well.After months of not being able to go to a movie theater, KWAM reporter Grace Baker saw a film at the Malco theater.
“You couldn’t do the self-serve butter, you couldn’t get your own napkins, you had to ask for everything. They handed you tiny little packets of salt,” she tells Walensky. “It was just reminding me that everything is not back to normal.”
