“Sign at bowling alley: ‘Due to Coronavirus, please refrain from touching other people’s balls‘“

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in bowling alleys taking precautions. “A Millvale, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania bowling alley has posted this sign” was posted on Twitter by Ann Spadafora on March 15, 2015:

‘Due to Coronavirus Please refrain from touching other People’s Balls. Please remember to wash your hands after touching your own balls. Thank you!”
