Is this really news that is worthy of getting posted? A middle student in another state getting COVID?? I have never previously used the “boring” emoji on anyone’s posts, but posting these “stories” is getting a little ridiculous.

more of a commentary on Football (at all levels) in the age of COVID. A couple of College games, 8th grade games, high school games etc being canceled this weekend and we are only into week 2-3 of the season.

Meetings are being postponed, movie openings postponed, many businesses are work from home, many businesses are gone forever.

Maybe instead of half empty view, you should comment on the success rate of athletics. A incredibly very high percentage of Oklahoma HS and MS football teams, softball teams, volleyball, and cross country teams have been able to participate in every event planned. The “hide in the hole” crowd said it couldn’t done or shouldn’t be attempted. And guess what —- it is working.

23 High school football games were canceled or postponed after week 1 in Oklahoma. 19 High School Football Games were canceled or postponed after week 2 in Oklahoma.

42 games in the first 2 weeks and that doesn't include any games that have been announced this week.

Yep, it’s been very successful for sure. I know some people don’t like hearing that but I don’t think that’s what you should focus on. You are never going to reach the people who are completely wrapped up in the perceived political “win” of keeping things from returning to normalcy. Just remember that normal people are pleased to see how well it’s going and are rooting for it to continue and they probably make up 90%+ of the population.

After today, 4 weeks of football regular season games; 7 weeks of softball; 7 weeks of volleyball. Thousands of games, events, and matches have been played allowing our young people to compete in the sport they love and for their school.

We had Debbie Downers on this site talk about OSU football season in the past tense because they were not wanting OSU to play due to the virus. Returning to sports is proving, what most of all already knew, that it can be done safely.

News is not an 8th grade team in Texas quarantining because of one player tests positive; news is the joy of young people playing sports.

Cleveland County is currently at 29 cases per 100,000 and has been in Orange 2 (25-50 cases/100,000) for the second consecutive week, so NPS should be virtual next week. Only a handful of cases within public schools and they're shutting down because of rises in college cases. SMH
Stillwater is going to a switch to an AB setup starting September 28th. they're trying to make sure that groups like softball, volleyball, and soccer will actually be able to get district games in as well as that should cover the start of district football. They still say they're not going to get with Bixby and make up the non-conference game. Which of you ask me, really sucks because it would have been nice for Stillwater to play Bixby early in the season and then potentially turn around and play them again in the finals at the end of the year.

TOPLINE

The Centers for Disease Control quietly updated its guidance on Friday for coronavirus transmission—now saying that the virus can be transmitted via aerosols as well as larger droplets—and is the agency’s latest update for managing the virus, among earlier controversial reversals on the wearing of masks, who can get tested and the reopening of businesses.
KEY FACTS
The Washington Post reported that although the CDC updated its guidance to mention aerosols on Friday, it was not widely noticed until CNN reported on it Sunday.
Before Friday’s update, the CDC said large respiratory droplets (like from coughing or sneezing) at close range transmitted the virus, but now adds “small particles, such as those in aerosols” can infect people.
“There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond six feet,” the CDC now advises.
Poorly ventilated indoor spaces, like choir practices or fitness classes, can be particularly risky for virus transmission, the CDC’s guidance adds.
Scientists say the new CDC guidance is important because cloth masks aren’t designed to protect the wearer from aerosols.
The World Health Organization publicly addressed the threat of aerosols in July at the urging of hundreds of scientists, and according to the Post, it’s unclear why the CDC is following suit months later.
CRUCIAL QUOTE
“This is a good thing, if we can reduce transmission because more people understand how it is spreading and know what to do to stop it,” University of Boulder-Colorado chemistry professor Jose-Luis Jimenez told the Post.
