Colleges are literally built to handle this exact situation better than any other organization.

We would hope but that has not been the case so far and classes have yet to begin.

quote:

The University of Louisville has dismissed three members of its men's soccer team and suspended three others as a disciplinary measure related to Saturday's off-campus party that led to 29 COVID-19 cases within the Louisville athletic department.


quote:

The 29 COVID-19 cases that were linked to that party are from four Louisville programs including both soccer programs, the volleyball team and the field hockey team. That outbreak led to the temporary shutdown of voluntary workouts and preseason practice for the four teams. Several members of the four teams tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and multiple additional student-athletes are a part of the quarantine after contact tracing.


quote:

"It is clear that these student-athletes did not meet the code of conduct of the university or their team," Tyra said. "Ignoring the safety protocols issued by federal, state and local officials, as well as the athletic department, is unacceptable and dangerous. Their history of actions are not in alignment with the values of this university and athletics department."


It will only get worse

So you’re proving my point. None of these happened while in quarantine nor during the course of a season. Yet...they still got it.

It would be better if everyone took the corona talk to the corona thread or one of the other threads started on it... JMO

Your post and jatebe's are classic examples of why I said it was overblown. Reading your posts would lead someone to believe me and my family are in the fortunate minority, when in fact the vast majority of people have either mild or no symptoms at all. There are unfortunate people that react badly, and that's awful, but thankfully very rare. It doesn't lessen the suffering of the families, or soften their grief, but it is true, regardless.

This is a Bama football news thread so I'm not gonna derail it any further, but I'll catch you in the other thread up top or something.

They were all back on campus for fall camps. So basically the season did start and if you read everything they were already required by the athletic dept to follow certain protocols. Hence the reason the athletic department took action.

If this was prior to the start of official return to campus the athletic department could not take any action on any of those involved like suspend and/or dismiss from the program as they did.

I will be disappointed if there is no season. In trenches this team reminds of the teams from 11 and 12.
