Is it safe to go out to play chess tournaments?

Riots are always acceptable because when shouldn’t a brick be thrown? Give me one good reason not to throw a brick. I’m waiting.

Weddings simply lack the proper human to brick ratio.

We don't need to prove one more time that gravity still works...

it depends where you live

More importantly, it depends on your personal situation. Like your age, how healthy you are, your immune system, and if you've already had it. It appears those who have already had it or a different type of coronavirus (which is a substantial number of people) are less likely to get it again for quite some time. 

People who take care of themselves by exercising, getting outside in the sun, eating right (especially fruits and vegetables) can greatly reduce their risk. Also, for some reason, it appears some fermented foods can help. Where someone lives isn't much of a factor. If you contract it from a hot spot where tens of thousands of people have it you will be just as infected if you live in a place where only one person has it. The odds of getting it rise if you are around a lot of people who have it. But it should be assumed everyone has it, or will soon get it. Sort of like a cold.

So I have some good news!

I found out today that most chess clubs in Australia are still operating. They're just doing online tournaments instead of over-the-board tournaments.

I played in a weekly online tournament hosted by the Melbourne Chess Club today. It was good fun. We all got on zoom video chat and the arbiter (who is an IM) even gave us useful advice after each round by commenting on a few games and common mistakes he saw.

So yeah OP, I'd recommend you join a club and play a few online tournaments within the club.
