Lots of smaller tournaments

The 2020 World Seniors Teams Championship is currently being held in Prague, with over 100 teams (400+ players) taking part. However, halfway through the event the Czech Government suddenly introduced regulations forbidding gatherings of more than 100 people in any one place. Clearly this would effect the tournament, at least until the organisers came up with a solution.
The tournament is still going ahead, but the playing areas have been divided up into smaller sections, thereby avoiding the 100 person limit. I suspect the organisers might be fans of Futurama, where we learned that being technically correct is "The best kind of correct"
