I found this to be a fairly well-balanced and reasonable article. Basically, knee-jerk craziness helps no one, including yourself. At the end of the day, the US is ill-prepared thanks to the shit profit-only healthcare and government cuts. I guess you just gotta hope/pray you don't get coughed on, but don't pray at Church, cause you might get it there!

Right now that I know of, it's the big musicals like West Side Story, Mean Girls, Frozen, etc., which routinely have dozens of people piled up.

Hello ticketholder! In an effort to be responsible and cautious, given the current health climate, we have been informed that the photo line scheduled for April 3rd, has been cancelled. We are as disappointed as you are!
Add Hilary to the list.
