friend of mine for years, he’s a great guy, outside of letting his son go to Auburn.
So the Auburn football players are tested for covid repeatedly, only live with other football players, are very well watched and cared for.
The auburn football players have all “told their professors that they can only have online classes”.
There is a cafeteria for auburn football players and for regular students, but now only the football players are able to eat there.
As a parent, he is required to join a weekly zoom meeting with football players and their team MD, to discuss health issues, primarily covid.
Sounds great, right? great system, right?
but here’s the problem-the auburn students have now arrived. all summer, no football players were covid positive. Now my friend’s son has been quarantined…twice! currently 18 auburn players are quarantined.
Both his quarantines were the same issue. roommate dated a girl, girl call that week that she’s covid +, rooommate gets tested and he’s covid +, so quarantine #1.
last week, he’s got 3 new roommates, one dates a new girl, girl calls back in couple days that she’s covid +, roommate gets tested and is covid +…qurantine #2.
luckily, none of these kids are sick, but it just underscored how impossible it is to protect any given population, when surrounded by knuckleheads.
Just hope that folks keep in mind that these players are clearly safer than the general student population. also hope that we get to see a couple games this year
man, where’s the vaccine!?!!
our hospital seems to be trending down, we’ve maintained 40’s to 50’s covid patients on any given day for the last 4-6 weeks (however long this second covid wave has been… i’m really having a hard time keeping track of time during this crazy pandemic).
last monday we had 29 and were back in the 40’s by wednesday. this monday about 35, and we’ve stayed in the 30’s. true trend or aberration??? hope it’s the former. i’m sick of this mess.
