The son of a competing golf coach tested positive this evening. We were in close contact today. We both were outside and wearing masks but we handed trophies and medals back and forth. I'm a little freaked out. At times at other tournaments I've rolled up next to him and forgotten my mask for a few moments. Today I was walking and thankfully had on a mask the entire time.

He was all choked up when he called to tell me and kept apologizing. I kept telling him to stop apologizing, we both followed all safety precautions. He's working from home the next couple weeks while worrying about every cough, sniffle, headache, or sore throat.

Final worry my assistant coach was with us today. If he tests positive our season is suspended for two weeks.

Good to be cautious but being outside is a huge help. I’m sure you’ll be fine but I’d try to isolate for five days and test

How long were you in close (less than a few feet) contact? Seconds or tens of minutes? If both people are masked and outside, getting a sufficient dose is pretty unlikely unless it’s for several minutes.

And that's the problem. We can't remember how long. Probably 15 to 20 minutes over a couple hours.

So you are off for two weeks or need to keep going?

I'd put odds it was transmitted at <.01%

Keep going because the person I was near hasn't tested positive.

Bizarre. Not sure the virus respects school employment, but that said, I'm sure you won't feel relieved until you know, but this would be an incredible edge case. Good luck Tex.

I haven't been in close contact with someone who tested positive. I'm praying he doesn't test positive but they are in the same house, so I'm expecting the worse.

Oh, ok, so you weren't near the person who tested positive. That probably means there's a good chance they weren't contagious, that's good news. That said, you should be under a 7 day quarantine if we were handling this well. No offense.

I misunderstood your story on who you were engaging with. Makes more sense now, but doesn't change that I think you'll be okay in the end. Good luck, I hope you have a quick turn around on results.

So far 3 coronavirus cases from the White House election watch party. 

The denial and the bad judgement continues. And to think this election was this close. And to think what damage has been done the country.

Honestly at this point they should simply send in the army and exterminate them all, worry about "legal authority" later after you've hopefully contained a potentially devastating mutation.

On October 24, the US 7 day moving average for cases crossed 62,000. It crossed 124,000 yesterday, November 10. That’s a doubling in 2.5 weeks, with only minimal responses being offered.

At that pace, the case load by Thanksgiving will be approaching 200,000 a day, but that’s so high that testing will be back to not up to the task of keeping up with cases.

We're probably looking at 2k+ deaths per day baked in for early December at this point.

I knew this was coming. Not saying it'll be good or bad but I pray the complete shutdown of the USA in January which could be coming, works on all levels. If toilet paper sells out again, I'm gonna scream BTW.

Ticketmaster is working on a plan to verify those going to events have had the vaccine or have tested negative in the 72 hours before the event.  This is probably the only way we get live sports and concerts by next spring/summer.  And that's planning on the vaccine being approved and available to the general public.

This will keep the anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists out of stadiums and concert venues anyway.

There’s going to be enough material for Bob Woodward to write another full book at this rate.

Maybe the strategy is to let Covid run free so as to discourage an attack against the US when Defense, CIA, FBI top leadership is fired or crippled?

Of course, that would require the admin having any “strategic” plan other than retiring campaign debt until January 20th.

Operation OAN is already up and running, it seems.
