: : : : : Just saw The gov has extended the stay home order until August 15.
: : : : : Surely will not be logical for a football season but how about basketball.
: : : : : Will schools reopen i n August Sept?If classes are not in session surely no games.
: : : : : I say letís open up and return to normal using good judgement.The media is fueling this pandemic. What are your thoughts folks . Pray for the world.

: : : : :This would be for LA county only and an official extension until August has NOT been issued as of yet. LA Times is reporting this as of 45 minutes ago. Once again, media fueling the fire with statements that aren't complete fact by using misleading headlines and partial information.

: : : I think the issue is, you guys arenít held responsible if someone does get sick or takes the virus back to family members in their homes. The schools and school districts would be held liable and thatís a huge thing to deal with. Thereís too much risk in the liability issues for schools to deal with. Also, we have lost more people to Covid than we lost in the Vietnam War. So even though you think the media may be ďfuelingĒ this pandemic, the numbers still donít lie.

: : To add: the numbers have been with ALOT of things shut down. Now that more is opening up, I think the government is basically trying to figure out can we operate the economy and still have the same about of infected & death rate.

: : In terms of sports, the college chancellor and presidents have said it best. 1st they need to find a way to get faculty and students back on campus safely, then student-athletes "might" be able to resume. Cal State schools have already announced Fall 2020 will be online. Look for other colleges and then high schools, etc to fall inline soon.

: What if schools or districts provided a form or waiver that parents had to sign releasing the school from responsibility if their kids get the virus? If they don't sign the waiver then the kids can't play. Possible?

Who accepts the liability, the parents? If a new group of infections are traced to a sports event, someone has to take on financial liability, and it would probably be the parents. The kids would have to quarantine for two weeks after playing in any event, or even single game.
