There is absolutely no reason to HAVE to play in public.

There are very few reasons for me to play in public even without the quarantine. The post was really about me but trying not to imagine someone making protective masks for their drone tops - you know that someone is going to do that!

Drone filters are on the crazy side of things, but it does make me think about what comes out of the drones while playing (other than sounds). If you're playing while asymptomatic, are you launching virus particles out of a pressurized bag? Or is is more likely that between the bag, reeds, and drones, most particles will have settled before dispersing into the environment. We know some moisture leaves the drones, just not sure how much or if enough to carry a virus.
