If the rest of the team continues to play, and then the handful of teammates test positive after the incubation period (median is 4-5 days), now more teams (and players) have been exposed.
I don't see how this ends well if anyone tests positive.
This is why other leagues around the world which have tried this have failed to reopen successfully.
Saying you will just lock down that one player at a time and accept the risk is a nice thought but then you have a second player and third and fourth and so on and soon you don’t have a team.
If they do a good job of testing everyone upfront and 100% LOCKING everyone down from the outside world during this playoff period then it might work.
Unless they plan on growing their own food in the locked down environment, I'm not sure anything is a guarantee for a successful reopening. 'Outsiders' will have some form of contact with the locked down group.
The virus can only live on surfaces for 24-48 hours depending on the type (glass tends to hold it best). If they clean it the surface upon deliver then that ends the story.
So that solves the food delivery problem. Just store it or clean it and keep chefs on site.
They’re going to have to hire an entire small community and keep them there for this event. Probably deliver enough food and supplies at the start.
