Just gives them more time to cancel it.. Heard today all PA schools may have to start online until after Christmas Break. Pittsburgh has a 3PM meeting today, Hempfield is August 10th.

If they let it up to the schools to opt out all it will take is 1 and everyone will be cancelling Fall Sports. If Baseball is pass ing the virus that fast and much, Football is going to be a nightmare on all levels.

The currently running Johnstown Collegiate Baseball League is still playing, has been since mid-June. ZERO cases to this point. Playing every night M-F.
The world as we know it underwent a rebirth 11-8-16. Conservatives have made themselves heard!

No one is saying these activities arent possible if you can control everyone not getting covid from outside sources.

Its just truth that all it takes is 1 positivie teammate to turn a whole team upside down and infected.

The 2 week quarantine is a problem. Will teams have freedom to find games when team A is sidelined? I saw PIAA is not considering them forfeits, so does that leave it open to find replacement games?

They aren't testing everyday in Johnstown. Have any of these positive MLB players had any symptoms or been admitted to the hospital? There are positive people walking around everywhere. I'm surprised MLB is panicking like they are. I thought that the reason they have 30 guys working out at satellite sites, is because they expect positives???

In other news, there was a full house for Jon Lewis' funeral, just like George Floyd's. Yet no outrage from the shut-it-down crowd..hmmm.

Glad to see all the social distancing being performed there. BTW, if 6' distance stops the virus, why the need for masks? And if masks stop the virus, why the need for 6' social distancing? And if BOTH stop the virus, why the LOCKDOWNS?
