Sad that you have to go hunting to find comments like this near the end of the article:
"The woman had no serious underlying medical conditions, he told the Times. She was, however, taking an immune-system suppressing medication for a minor illness, he said. But it's unclear whether that drug made her more susceptible to the virus."
Instead you get this at the top of the article:
"The recipient was an otherwise healthy woman in her 20s."
She can't be healthy and also immuno compromised at the same time.

The term "OTHERWISE healthy" means that other than the one minor medical issue she had and the medication she was taking for it, she was healthy. It is common language in medicine. "J.T. is a 42 year old male with a history of hypertension for which he takes HCTZ but is otherwise healthy." That means that he has hypertension but is generally good shape with no other medical issues.

Fan safety measures in Boone Pickens Stadium
STILLWATER
- Oklahoma State is committed to creating a safe environment for its fans, students and campus community and has implemented several new safety measures in and around Boone Pickens Stadium for the 2020 season.

  • Mobile ticketing and parking
    • No tickets or parking passes for the club level or main stadium bowl area will be printed and mailed from OSU Athletics.
    • Fans are encouraged to download their tickets and parking passes to their mobile device prior to arriving to Boone Pickens Stadium through their Account Manager.
    • If a printed option is preferred, then fans can print their tickets and parking pass from home, also through Account Manager.
    • For a detailed guide on mobile ticketing, click HERE (PDF).
    • For more, visit am.ticketmaster.com/okstate.
  • Additional spacing between seats
    • Adequate space is allotted between groups.
  • Mask requirement
    • Both Oklahoma State University and the city of Stillwater have ordinances in place for people to wear face coverings in public spaces in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. This applies to Boone Pickens Stadium, as well.
    • Acceptable face coverings include R95, KN95, dust masks, procedural masks, cotton bandanas, neck gaiters, running buffs and some tightly woven scarves. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
  • No tailgating
    • Tailgating is prohibited on the campus of Oklahoma State University.
  • POSSE Parking
    • Lots open 2 1/2 hours before kickoff.
  • Clear bag policy
    • Fans are limited to one bag per person with a small clutch bag for privacy.
      • Approved For Entry
      • Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags no larger than 12" x 6" x 12"
      • Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC drawstring bags no larger than 12" x 12"
      • Clear one-gallon storage bags.
      • A small clutch purse approximately the size of a hand with or without a handle or strap. The largest permissible size is 4.5" x 6.5"
    • Permitted with Inspection
      • Diaper bags with an accompanying child will be searched and tagged upon entry.
      • Bags larger than approved sized for medical necessities will be searched and tagged upon entry.
  • Hand sanitizers
    • Several new hand sanitizing stations are installed throughout the stadium for fan use.
  • Concession stands
    • Plexiglas has been added to concession stands and to portable points of sale throughout Boone Pickens Stadium.
  • Common Areas
    • The cool zone area on the plaza level in the west end zone – a popular area for fans on game day – is closed in order to discourage large gatherings.
Who was it that said banning tailgating was going to cause riots?

Thats going to kill a lot of the football experience right there. I think a lot of people go JUST for the tailgating and social aspect.
Friend of mine that lives in Stillwater is going to be tailgating in his driveway every game. He's nowhere near the stadium but I bet he puts on quite an event that many in the neighborhood will turn out for.
