I don’t see the correlation between what the CDC said and having a bubble. The bubble eliminates outside contact, nothing to do with testing.


Because 99% of these athletes testing positive have no symptoms or are false positives. So if u dont test healthy people, u dont get positive results. No positive results equals play as usual. No need for a bubble.

No. Not sure what spreading great news and positive statistics would have to do with the POTUS.

Think how huge this news is. The CDC is telling us, even if you come into contact with someone who has the corona, unless you are feeling sick, you do not need to be tested. That is amazing no one is talking about this.

MLB and NFL can change there testing protocols immediately. No need to test healthy althletes.

Good news for Florida too. Outbreak is basically over. Just announced the Dolphins can have fans in the stands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No-one is talking about it because it isn't true. Here's the current CDC guidance (link posted a few posts ago) which says that you DO require testing if you come into contact with a person known or suspected to be infected, regardless of whether they (or you) have symptoms (see bullet #2). It is well-established that asymptomatic people can (and do) spread the virus.

Considerations for who should get tested

- People who have symptoms of COVID-19
- People who have had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with someone with confirmed COVID-19
- People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, local or state health department.

Not everyone needs to be tested. If you do get tested, you should self-quarantine/isolate at home pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional.[

It is right on their website brother. Revised August 24th. Embrace the good news my friend. No one is spreading false info!
www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/testing-overview.html

If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms:
You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.
A negative test does not mean you will not develop an infection from the close contact or contract an infection at a later time.
You should monitor yourself for symptoms. If you develop symptoms, you should evaluate yourself under the considerations set forth above.
You should strictly adhere to CDC mitigation protocols, especially if you are interacting with a vulnerable individual. You should adhere to CDC guidelines to protect vulnerable individuals with whom you live.
If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms and have not been in close contact with someone known to have a COVID-19 infection:
You do not need a test.
A negative test does not mean you will not contract an infection at a later time.
If you decide to be tested, you should self-isolate at home until your test results are known, and then adhere to your health care provider’s advice. This does not apply to routine screening or surveillance testing at work, school, or similar situations.
If you are in a high COVID-19 transmission area and have attended a public or private gathering of more than 10 people (without widespread mask wearing or physical distancing):
You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.
A negative test does not mean you will not develop an infection from the gathering or contract an infection at a later time.

Florida has a third of the population of Italy - it also has more than double the number of total COVID cases and its current rate of over 3,000 cases per week is about triple Italy's rate.

But yeah, it's all good, don't let data or facts or science get in the way of football.

You are correct. Ignore the good news and what the CDC and the data is saying. That seems constructive.

OK let's break that into pieces for the kids in the back of the class.

1. If you're symptomatic, get tested and adhere to mitigation protocols.
2. If you're asymptomatic, but have been exposed to someone who's COVID-positive - regardless of symptoms - you don't NECESSARILY need a test, but you should adhere to mitigation protocols.
3. If you have been in a high-transmission area (i.e., Florida) you should adhere to mitigation protocols.

So, what are the mitigation protocols - you guessed it, wear a mask and avoid crowds, especially indoor crowds.

Not really sure how you get from there to "if we're asymptomatic let's party," like too many college kids did (followed by blowing up their semesters).

Oh and the CDC adds this (in bold, at the bottom of your link) which I think you left out:

It is important to realize that you can be infected and spread the virus but feel well and have no symptoms.

So let's review:

- if you're symptomatic, quarantine.
- if you're asymptomatic but exposed, wear a mask, stay outside and social distance.
- if you're asymptomatic and live in a state with a half-million plus COVID cases, wear a mask, stay outside, and social distance.

I don't think the CDC and you are on the same page.

Sources: NCAA is looking into these four dates as the potential start for the 2020-21 D-I CBB season.

Option 1
First practices allowed: Sept. 29
First day of season: Nov. 10 (No change to start of season)

Option 2
First practices allowed: Oct. 9
First day of season: Nov. 20

Option 3
First practices allowed: Oct. 14
First day of season: Nov. 25

Option 4
First practices allowed: Oct. 24
First day of season: Dec. 4

Those dates are not fated to be the only dates discussed, but they are the initial trial balloons the NCAA is seeking feedback on.

Commissioners were briefed last week.

Every important cmte meets this week to discuss.

Possibly starting around Thanksgiving “has momentum.” More:
