Difference is amount of exposure matters. Kids in the large space of the gym vs parents in a waiting room which could be a much smaller space.I commented this on another thread: The gymnast lives with the parent, rode in the car with the parent, hugged the parent goodbye. The parent doesn't have anything the gymnast doesn't have. I don't think it makes a difference if the parent enters with the gymnast, and in general I don't like the idea of dropping my kid off somewhere I'm not allowed to enter (my kids are still young). I think this falls in the category of things that look better/make us feel safer, rather than something that actually makes us all safer.
Parents being allowed to watch practice via video, mitigates being able to "see" the kids. Or limiting parents to time slots. So parents are always in the gym, just not all at once.
