Re: BHA

So what if 1 player has symptoms? The chances of them being in the less than 1% that will die from this are very very slim. They are far more likely to die in a car crash. Get games restarted behind closed doors.

I’d recommend using a laptop / computer camera, rather than your phone. You’ll get a little more functionality especially if you’re the host. That said, if you are on a phone then I’d suggest keeping it plugged in whilst you are on it. I’ve found zoom blitzed my battery on longer than 40 min sessions.
