    Heard a lot about positives when kids reported for voluntary workouts. Haven’t heard a lot about them since.

    NBA bubble seems to be working well.

    8 days until MLB season starts.

    Fingers crossed.

    I'd guess that the college football environment (at least at P5 schools) is safer for the players than living at home or away from campus. More pre-cautions, more testing, etc.

    This is true and a point that doesn’t really get mentioned often. Yes, there will be cases on probably every college football team. But what if these kids didn’t have football to care about and prepare for or the structure and testing? Are we assuming they’d all just stay home all day?

    MLB should have started weeks ago.. Besides a man on first base and the player playing first base and meetings at the mound what close contact do they have to deal with?

    They can get a new ball after every out if needed too..

    Expect case numbers to plummet now that the White House is in charge of the numbers

    apologies if I'm naive, but I don't think collegiate athletic depts are included in that reporting.

    other than that, terrific post!

    I GAURANTEE more student athletes test positive for covid not playing vs playing. As stated there is much more precautions taken and safety structure in place for these kids with football going on than if they were left to do as they will. If kids don't have football. They will be out and about way more, travel way more and odds of getting exposed will be way more.

    Maybe they can get states to use a uniform method for reporting "positive" cases. Previously some states are including "probable" positives in their reporting to the CDC. When you start reporting somebody as a COVID death when you don't have lab confirmation, that's a problem for a statistician. Apparently nobody in New Jersey died of any other disease process than COVID over the past 3 months.:confused:

    I think I've moved into the boat where it's a foregone conclusion that the season won't start until October if at all. It might be all over but the crying.

    One thing you also don't see is the B1G coming out with a new schedule either.

    You have Walmart mandating masks nationwide and stuff like this deep in SEC country.



    I don't see alot of activity now that leads me to believe decision makers have moved onto the "play ball" mindset after being negative the last couple of weeks.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    English Premier and Bundesligua Soccer leagues in Europe have been playing for weeks. No fans, but no interruptions to the schedule once they resumed. There is a lot of contact in soccer, FWIW.

    Korean and Japanese baseball leagues are playing.

    It can be done. Get your sh!t together; collaborate; take reasonable precautions; problem solve instead of looking for enemies to blame for setbacks

    i think this virus is going to run through the most vulnerable of us in just about every state or location eventually. if it missed your state early on then it will come in later and do the damage then. we are unable to isolate ourselves enough to stop that from happening. so each state will have their time of grim news. i think it should be expected not alarmed. alabama should have known if they open up it would come for them. so this should not be a surprise. it sucks but not surprising

    Can we trust the tests, Joey Gallo tested pos then neg then pos, how can that happen. Are they pushing people to hospitals earlier now than before? Serious questions, mortality rate falling quickly. Florida reporting is a mess and false. I know in Plano they are counting same person with positive as new case and counting those from contact tracing as positive. That is fake reporting.

    Maybe things are different now but when I was in college at UNL the football players were out all the time on O street, house parties, their own parties...I don't think them being back is any different than if they were not back. College kids hang out with other college kids and college guys look for college girls and college girls like free booze.

    Just spent an hour and a half teaching an NFP intro class to two nurses. Both mentioned the $ incentive to include Covid as related death factor- even in a guy that was 99% of the way gone from liver failure, but had Covid in the system. The numbers are skewed. How badly? Not sure. The recent info from Florida's reporting is not a confidence-booster, that's for sure.

    Urban Meyer says we should see some games, maybe not all games, and not all conferences, but something. I'm not sure I care all that much about a partial SEC season.

    The Rose Parade had been cancelled which isn't great news for post season.

    Laughing something like that. Walmart is going to start saving lives...in 5 days, also. So that's nice. Not sure why they will accept mayhem and mask-free murder in the meantime.???

    Having collective $h!t together as countries works. Reading this thread I have little confidence this is possible in the good ole USA. Holy heck- top shelf misinfo and bad critical thinking skills in full display.

    There's been roughly the same number of murders and shootings of small children in St. Louis as there has been COVID deaths. Where' the outrage about the shootings.

    you already know the answer to your own question . But its troubling that you are angry over people getting upset about the number of hospitalizations and deaths from covid. It is killing people and putting people in hospital and messing with livelihoods and you are upset that people dont like it? weird

    Perhaps @Pennsyhusker can clarify but it looks like Pennsylvania basically went into lockdown again today. According to one of their state reps:

    This order was announced by the Governor at 3:30 today and will go into effect at 12:01AM on Thursday, July 16, 2020.

    Bars

    - All bars are prohibited from conducting operations unless they offer sit-down, dine-in meals.

    - Alcohol only can be served for on-premises consumption when in the same transaction as a meal.

    - All service must be at a table or booth; bar service is prohibited.

    - Take-out sales of alcohol for the purposes of off-site consumption are permitted subject to any limitations or restrictions imposed by Pennsylvania law.

    - For purposes of the order, occupancy requirements are:

    - Limited to 25 percent of stated fire-code maximum occupancy for indoor dining.

    - A discrete indoor event or gathering in a business in the retail food services industry is limited to 25 persons.

    Restaurants and private catered events

    For purposes of the order, occupancy requirements are:

    - Limited to 25 percent of stated fire-code maximum occupancy for indoor dining.

    - A discrete indoor event or gathering in a business in the retail food services industry is limited to 25 persons.

    All businesses in the retail food services industry, including restaurants, wineries, and bars, are permitted to provide take-out and delivery sales of food, as well as dine-in service in both indoor and outdoor seating areas so long as they strictly adhere to the requirements of the guidance, as required by the order, including:

    - Non-bar seating in outdoor areas (i.e., tables or counter seats that do not line up to a bar or food service area) may be used for customer seating.

    - Customers being served must be seated at a table.

    - The maximum occupancy limit includes staff.

    - Social distancing, masking, and other mitigation measures must be employed to protect workers and patrons.

    - Alcohol only can be served for on-premises consumption when in the same transaction as a meal. Take-out sales of alcohol for the purposes of off-site consumption are permitted subject to any limitations or restrictions imposed by Pennsylvania law.

    Nightclubs

    All nightclubs, as defined by the Clean Indoor Air Act, 35 P.S. § 637.2, are prohibited from conducting operations.

    Other events and gatherings

    Events and gatherings other than those in businesses in the retail food services industry must adhere to these gathering limitations:

    - Indoor events and gatherings of more than 25 persons are prohibited.

    - Outdoor events and gatherings of more than 250 persons are prohibited.

    - The maximum occupancy limit includes staff.

    Teleworking

    - Unless not possible, all businesses are required to conduct their operations in whole or in part remotely through individual teleworking of their employees in the jurisdiction or jurisdictions in which they do business.

    - Where telework is not possible, employees may conduct in-person business operations, provided that the businesses fully comply with all substantive aspects of the business safety order, the worker safety order, and the masking order.

    Gyms and fitness facilities

    All gyms and fitness facilities, while permitted to continue indoor operations, are directed to prioritize outdoor physical fitness activities. All activities must follow masking requirements as provided by the July 1 order, and must provide for social distancing requirements of persons being at least 6 feet apart, as well as being limited by any limitations related to gatherings.

    Yes, those are the new rules and they cover the entire State, which is stupid. Almost all of the uptick in new cases have been in Pittsburgh and Philly. Everywhere else is doing fine. My county, Luzerne, had 5 new cases in the past week. We shouldn’t be lumped in with the two big problem areas.

    Bar owners getting blamed for the spread is asinine.

    Same is true for on campus learning. Was talking with a college professor yesterday (not UNL). Masks required and all sorts of precautions while in class, at the cafeteria, etc. But its the dorm life and bar scene where these kids are going to be passing it along to each other. Pretty much the same as is happening now before school starts.

    A lot of these football programs are doing their best, I am sure. But every program is going to have players hitting the party seen and chasing the ladies. The key will be keeping infected players from mass infecting the team. I do not believe it will happen very easily during a game and it shouldn't if a team practices in a smart manner. But....

    well every state in the country has contact traced significant spreads to bars. in fact looking at the available stats bars might be the #1 spreader from cases that could actually by traced
