Nor are the vaccines 100% effective, if 20 drivers are vaccinated some (a couple maybe) may not gain immunity. My understanding is vaccinations can be effective on a population but can’t be guaranteed for any particular individual.
I would think that if they do use vaccination, seems likely they will, they will need to do it soon to allow for recovery from adverse reactions and development of immunity which takes weeks. I think they will also need to continue with their 2020 protocols AND persuade destination health authorities that they’re measures will not import a risk of infection. Given how many teams are based in the U.K. which is very high risk I don’t think that’s a given.
It is not just the person being infectious. I could be vaccinated and your mate could be, but if have handled a computer mouse someone has 'contaminated', pick up a book, walk into your place, give it to your mate, who goes to your house and hands it to you, Zap. you probably have it.
There are so many things passing back and fore when the circus turns up it would be very hard to draw a line and say 'clear' and 'dirty'
A crate of bottles from hospitality returned or recycled locally for instance.
