Science still does not have a firm understanding on how much kids can spread Covid. The data is just not there since schools were shut down so fast back in March.
Since we don’t know, Governors and schools are taking a cautious approach. Low risk does not mean no risk.
Thanks, I should have saved the article because I scour the web so much I can't remember where I saw it, but I think it was five teams have already committed to no fans or a low percentage (if allowed).
I don't think they are being sneaky as much as collecting the interest on the money until they have to give it back. They don't have to give it back (for those who want a refund) until an official statement from the government (Federal, state or local) or the League forbidding large gatherings of excess size. They could wait until the day of each game to refund hoping things could progress week-to-week. That last scenario, it would really pi$$ me off.
If you have kids teaching kids, kids running the schools, kids driving the school buses and kids raising themselves when they get home...there's no reason to shut down the schools.
The issue is not the kids, its all of the people they come in contact with. And maybe school has changed since I was there, but a majority of my teachers could be considered higher risk.
