They absolutely are going to have a season despite outbreaks. Already have, really. The question is what's the line. And are the protocols in place good enough? Having access to regular testing solves a lot of problems.
This answers some of my questions.
According to Kenney, “close contact” does not mean playing on the same field with an infected player.
“Just because you’re in the vicinity doesn’t necessarily mark you as a guy,” Kenney said.
Instead, the league advises teams to consider criteria for each teammate, in accordance with CDC recommendations: Did the infected player cough, spit, or otherwise propel secretions toward the teammate? Did the infected player touch the teammate, or share personal items? And did the infected player spend at least 15 minutes within six feet of the teammate?
Should a player test positive, Kenney said a team should be able to play on, even if a few players are identified as close contacts, as each team selects a 30-man roster from a 60-man pool.
