Coronavirus discussion and Quarantine ideas
« on: March 13, 2020, 02:04:18 AM »
There are no Olympic sports, no basketball, no baseball. The only thing left is COVID-19. The Mayor, Fred Hoiberg, Nebraska's coach, had influenza A on the sidelines. Not a good pic. 

Hoping we can have MLB. I am thinking that as coronavirus amps up, if countries have implemented restrictions, it amps back down. I am thinking two months of issues for sports. Maybe MLB starts in mid-May, or to be safe, in June?

Volleyball tournaments canceled here in Indy this weekend.  Interestingly, IHSAA hasn't canceled basketball state playoffs, but no fans.

I hesitate to "believe" anything about this.  The latency period is very concerning, I think.  It is possible this is just something that becomes "routine" over time.  It may be seasonal (or not).  We may find in a couple weeks it was not as bad as feared.  Maybe we all contract it and develop immunity.  Maybe this. maybe that.

I can appreciate folks wanting to be careful.  We had fairly recently zika scares and swine flu and whatever else and "survived".  My advice is to buy any toilet paper you can find anywhere.  (JK).

I've got Amazon delivering 16 pallets of toilet paper to my home this afternoon, so I'm good.

As far as sports, if you consider them such, Indycar and NASCAR will both be running this weekend, with no fans in attendance.  I'm actually more of a Forumla1 fan, but they've canceled this weekend's season opening race that was supposed to occur in Australia.  Since the next few races beyond that are in Bahrain, Vietnam, and China, I'm assuming the entire first 20% of the season will be canceled.

My daughter was supposed to have an AAU basketball tournament this weekend and an All-Star game on Sunday. Those were both cancelled. 

I'm in wait and see mode on the IHSAA regionals this weekend. My son's team won their sectional and play in the regional at Frankfort. They can definitely win that and move on. IHSAA sent out a memo to all the AD's (I am one) and they are actually allowing each school to have 75 admittances to the tournament games, not counting the 12 kids on the roster. That includes administration, coaches, managers, trainer, bookkeeper, and bus driver. The only other people allowed to attend are supposed to be immediate family and that is being defined as parents or siblings.  Last night we had to list 6 people who wanted to attend from our family and prioritize them from 1-6. The school is then going to make a list for the remaining 63 or 64 slots that are available after counting the essential personnel who will be able to attend.

Personally, I fully expect that the regionals will be cancelled.

Yeah I'd say that's a safe assumption.

My kids' school district is on spring break next week, and so far hasn't announced closure beyond that, but it's inevitable.  Houston ISD and all districts in that metro canceled through 3/30. They have multiple cases in their town, but Austin metro just announced its first two cases, and so everything here will be shutting down as well.

Sure would be nice to have some NCAA basketball tourney to watch over the next few weeks of being shut-in...

The MSHSL ordered playoff games the rest of the week, starting today, to be behind closed doors with immediate family only present. I was more surprised that the League didn't close doors Thursday. I also suspect that next week's state boys basketball tournament will be cancelled. The closed-door move was to buy some time and guidance from MDH, MDE, and others.

I think the hope is that with an ultra-aggressive response up front, that we'll contain the spread until we get into warmer weather and hopefully this thing naturally tapers off. 

I'm surprised though. In my 41 years on the planet, I've never seen anything like this. Which is why (like a lot of people) I have no frame of reference whether this is an underreaction, appropriate response, or an overreaction.

Daughter’s travel softball tournament in Charlotte this weekend cancelled.  Girls and boys state basketball tournaments here in WV cancelled (or postponed, don’t remember).  Spring sports in the county we live in have been put on hiatus until April.  School hasn’t been cancelled yet but I think it’s coming.

Had kind of a tense conversation with my kids’ school administrator yesterday.  My kids go to a small, private Christian school.  They sent a letter home Wednesday that any child who leaves the state will be required to be tested before being allowed back in school.  I went to the office yesterday and told them simply leaving the state doesn’t meet the criteria to be tested and there isn’t enough test kits out there to just test anyone.  She said their attorney assured them they were within their rights to set that standard.  I told her that as a private institution they can set whatever rules they want but it doesn’t mean they are pragmatic or based in common sense, and that when my wife emailed the letter to the administrator at the county health department she laughed and said someone from the school needed to contact her immediately.


They sent a new letter home yesterday walking back that part but made sure to put in bold print they were within their legal rights to demand that.  Just discouraged anyone from leaving the state.  This whole thing is surreal.

Leaving the state?  Interesting.  Obviously there are not nearly enough test kits to check patients who lack obvious symptoms, much less folks who left the state.

Right about now I'm wishing I'd had ignored @OrangeAfroMan and made his game electronic...

We could all assume a year and team, and have at "the greatest team ever" in style.
