If you want people to call in you could do it like a call in show. Have a number that is announced and hook up only that phone to the sound system. Have someone clearing the calls and announcing who we have on the phone and then bring them up in the sound system.

It will be hilarious listening to people trying to talk when they hear themselves with that amount of latency delay. Like trying to speak with a long echo delay on the system.   

I was always told that Long shotguns mics are usually a poor choice for indoor use, especially when being feed to a sound reinforcement system. The short ones are a little bit better. It is just how the porting for rejection works when it hears the sound returning to itself.

Putting a lectern between the mic and the speaker might enforce some distancing....

Also, the virus doesn't stay viable forever, so anything missed in disinfection will be inactive after a couple of weeks.
I believe itís three days actually with greater than 90% of the virus dead after 24 hours.

I would imagine when this comes up we'll have several channels on the show, with each microphone being taken back from the person speaking while the next person is handed a freshly sanitized microphone.

[...]
If there is no coronavirus around the entire state or county, this won't happen, but weddings and regional/national corporate events by nature attract folks from out of town, with unknown exposures and infection avoidance behavior, who may have traveled by air or other public transit from higher risk areas days earlier. No one is going to screen guests at the door. This is not just a trivial problem as we figure out how to return safely to producing live group events.
[...]

Obviously things are a bit different for corporate (but only a bit), but for a wedding, why are you worried about the mic? My understanding is that, even with proper spacing, spending a couple hours in an enclosed room with a bunch of other people of unknown infection status opens the door for significant transmission all on its own, especially if there is food involved. If anyone in the room isn't wearing at least a cloth mask then the mic is probably the least of their worries (and, of course, if everyone is wearing a mask then the mic probably isn't a big issue).

I believe itís three days actually with greater than 90% of the virus dead after 24 hours.

It depends on the surface. According to this article in the New England Journal of Medicine 90% after 24 hours is actually close to the worst-case scenario, with many surfaces (including stainless steel) showing >99% death in that same time period. Cardboard will get you down to 90% in just a couple of hours.

The latency in Bluetooth is fine for phone conversations, I donít see it as the limiting factor, but single device at a time is.  I think there are new BT devices on the horizon that will allow multiple pairings, but probably for listen only.

Another thought would be a Zoom conference they call into from their phone.

Mac

That last idea sounds interesting.

Although I think in all cases the latency is still gonna be problematic for people in the same room with their amplified selves.

Since everyone is accustomed to streaming, would it be possible to setup a camera and mic in a "clean room" and then pipe audio and video back to the guests.

I know you may not carry video on a wedding gig, also it does remove the crowd interaction.
But gain before feedback would be a non issue no matter where the mic is.

This ain't The Andromeda Strain, we don't need a nuclear self-destruct option...  Cleaning and reasonable disinfection can be achieved with common products and sanitizers.

Aah, so refreshing on a hot summer's day.   ;D



What's really scary, for us Crichton fans, are the striking similiarities between COVID-19 and Andromeda Strain regarding vascular & coagulation disorders.  Sheesh!

Something to sip while Project Scoop lands and the good Doctor opens it...

Crichton was a physician by training, IIRC.

Order up "Cautery."
