Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told Sirius XM Radio on Thursday that there have been discussions about delaying the College Football Playoff and the New Year's Six bowls because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fucking Ivy League trying to fuck everyone for the third time. Watch this be the first domino towards the cancellation of the 2021 NCAA basketball tournament and the College World Series. Again. They should just pull the damn plug on ALL sports from now on if they are this petrified
Garner Webb had three positive tests yesterday out of over 300 administered. As a result of contact tracing, they lost eight of their 11 offensive lineman. At the very least, five of those tested negative but are out.
Truly bizarre decisions based on contact tracing to guys who are testing negative while asymptomatic.
A question was posed yesterday about these players testing positive: "How many do you think were surprised they tested positive?"
My CFO tested positive over the weekend. I was in contact with him on Thursday and Friday, but luckily I don't feel anything. Gonna work from home for a few days just to allow them to fog the office and hopefully nothing else will come of it.
Montana has been in a statewide mask mandate since July for counties with a certain number of covid cases. All the populated counties have been wearing masks since July Missoula county is one of those.
Missoula is a liberal leaning city. Having said that, they've been pro mask since the beginning, you have to wear mask in public. Why are cases surging here if everyone is wearing masks?
Many in service industries have to wear masks all day. Schools are back in session, unclear if masks are worn there all day. University is a mix of virtual and in person learning.
I'm not sure if you can get past the pay wall, but the daily data from the Wall Street Journal is really interesting. The county by county interactive map gauging new cases is also available on the main page at www.wsj.com Fascinating that a state like Georgia, where the governor opened the economy and schools, and South Carolina and Florida, are having relatively few new cases. New York, which was ravaged earlier, is low in spite of what you read.
It's a busy graphic, and the paste below is not interactive like the real one, but you get the idea. Most recent week, and a daily rate of 70 or more gets the high level, which would be 490 cases out of 100,000 for a week, or 0.5 percent. Midwest population centers, like Chicago, are surging.
From a Montana standpoint, since the vast majority of Montana counties have fewer than 50,000 residents, the per 100,000 rate is actually higher than the number of cases. Madison County, MT has a rate of 127 per 100,000, but a population of just 8,600, so that infection rate would mean over the last week there have been about 75 new cases.
Missoula County implemented some new controls 3 weeks ago. They aren't working, anticipate further controls soon.
The outgoing Governor also mandated a change that everyone in public will be required to wear masks, regardless of the number of cases the other day. Sort of odd, because I'm under the impression that when the health department mandates this, you cannot legally fight this.
Many of the restaurants are struggling in town. They've adapted, but still struggling.
Just find it strange that positive cases are climbing at 60+ per day in Missoula County when masks are being worn. Perhaps it's rising as its cold out and people are gathering indoors without masks.
Two people at work have spouses that are helping with tracing.
