SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA
Authorities in the South Korean capital on Monday announced a tightening of social distancing regulations, including shutting nightclubs, limiting service hours at restaurants and reducing public transportation.
The measures going into effect on Tuesday also include a ban on public rallies or demonstrations of more than 10 people. Restaurants can provide only take out and delivery after 9 p.m., and public transportation will be limited after 10 p.m.
 
South Korea has saw the virus spread faster after authorities eased social distancing restrictions to the lowest level in October amid concerns about a weak economy.
 
Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency Director Jeong Eun-kyeong said tightening guidelines was inevitable as a failure to slow transmissions now could “break the dam” in anti-virus efforts and result in a surge in infections nationwide that may overwhelm hospital systems.
“We need to reduce people-to-people contact,” she said during a briefing Monday, pleading with people to cancel year-end meetings and other gatherings. MLB Face Masks
Fanatics is making masks instead of MLB jerseys to fight Coronavirus
 
With the Major League Baseball season suspended due to Covid-19, resources that would normally be reserved for making jerseys will instead go toward masks and gowns for healthcare workers.
Fanatics, the company that manufactures MLB jerseys for Nike, has temporarily converted its 360,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Easton, Pennsylvania, to create up to 1 million masks and gowns, per MLB.
According to Fanatics executive director Michael Rubin, the company has halted production of jerseys entirely, instead re-focusing a staff of 100 social-distanced employees on making masks and gowns from jersey materials. They will be donated to hospitals and emergency management personnel in Pennsylvania with plans to expand to the New York City region, which has become the epicenter of the outbreak. 
MLB jerseys are made with polyester, which could retain germs for a longer period of time compared to cotton. But the jersey-made equipment could still help prevent the spread of Covid-19 by way of coughing, spitting or sneezing. Some form of prevention is better than none as healthcare workers are already struggling with a lack of resources amid the outbreak and are being told to reuse masks.
Material
Facemasks for football helmets are made from three materials: carbon steel, stainless steel, or titanium. Carbon steel is the heaviest of the materials and generally costs the least. Titanium, on the other hand, is lightweight, extremely durable, and far and away from the most expensive. Stainless steel falls in the middle, being of average weight and moderately priced. All three rank high in terms of durability. The determining choices for most tend to be the weight of the mask and its cost.

As MLB spring training resumes, 31 players test positive for COVID-19
Major League Baseball, resuming spring training Friday, announced that 31 players and seven staff members tested positive for COVID-19 as part of intake screening. The 38 positives were 1.2% of the 3,185 total samples collected and tested, according to the league.

Any player who tests positive for COVID-19 must test negative twice at least 24 hours apart from one another, with no fever for 72 hours, before he can rejoin a team.
MIKE TROUT: Angels' MVP isn't sure he'll play this season
As Texas shuts back down amid soaring COVID-19 cases, doctors across the now-hardest-hit states face insurers that are starting to back away from the widely embraced telehealth approach to doctor appointments. 
Insurers are scaling back telehealth to pre-COVID levels, which were limited, resuming out-of-pocket payments and using time-consuming prior authorizations that can deter doctors. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas initially planned to end telehealth expansion May 31 but has moved the date three times. It's now Aug. 31.Minnesota Twins Face Masks
