"Sam Rockwell is one of the actors quoted in the article. He is currently performing theatre in the round, with audience members feet away from him. He said someone was coughing four feet from him during a recent performance. So it’s not impossible. The fourth wall is imaginary."

That was a special case, since he's performing at Circle In The Square, where some audience members are indeed very close to the cast onstage. But it seems like that wouldn't be the case in normal proscenium houses, which make up most of Broadway. Are people really suggesting that Hugh Jackman could catch Covid from an audience member at the Winter Garden?

He would be much more likely to catch it from going to a restaurant or grocery shopping, or to catch it from a fellow cast member that went to a bar, than from a guy in Row F.
