If we, here, as a group, and behave sensibly, and I suspect we do, it's a help.  I'm actually used to wearing a mask now any time I'm around someone else or entering a store.  My Marine FB friends call me a sheep because a virus particle is smaller than any mask weave (including N95s).

I recall back in the day being fitted for a full respirator.  We didn't do the gas chamber thing though.  We had over 2,000 chemicals in our lab, one manager thought we should have to memorize the MSDS for each of them.  Um, no.

Wisconsin.

Look at the spike here, and then the age groups. Kids are stupid.

No cases that I've heard about, but that staff is so tight I would not expect to hear anything. They almost never talk to the media. That's Paul Chryst for ya.

I guess we'll find out when the season starts.  Do you know if the team is practicing?  Because they're not allowed to practice if there are too many cases

I imagine the coaches and staff are reading the riot act daily to players about their proclivities in socializing, and the damage and personal injury that could ensue.

I wonder how many viral diseases have such a high rate of having no or light symptoms.  That is an evolutionary advantage for a virus I think, versus say ebola that is horrible indeed but tends to be self limiting.

Georgia reported a very low figure Monday, but Monday's tend to be low.

They are practicing. ND has 39 players in quarantine. Seems to me there was a party or something.

I'd guess many of those 39 were contract traced and now isolated pending testing.

 25 players are in isolation as a result of 18 positive tests last week. Another 14 players are in quarantine due to contact tracing.

Of the 18, some might be false positives.  Even so, 14 positives is not good obviously, and multiplies out.  (This is if the lab didn't screw things up royally.)

So as I posted way earlier in the thread last week my dad came down with COVID.  He was taken to the hospital last Friday night, treated and then released on Saturday.  I have no idea why they released him so early but apparently he was doing well all things considered.  Sunday he started feeling poor again and Monday he was taken back to the hospital.  Right now he's in stable condition but he's on a ventilator. They're going to give him REMDESIVIR (excuse me if I misspelled that!).  They're hoping to take him off the ventilator this week.  My mom, who also contracted COVID is still home and doing OK.  She has days where she feels better and days where she feels worse but all in all OK.

Oh man I'm sorry to hear that Gigem.  Your family has my prayers.

It seems to last about 4-5 days with bad symptoms.  We all hope he does well obviously.  He may be nearing the hump, we hope.

Sorry to hear, and best of luck to both of them. That sucks.
