: I have talked with a few ADs in Socal and plans are in the works to reopen some form of summer programs and fall ball. But the two unanswered questions remain (and as far as I know no one can answer these questions as of yet) = what happens when the first athlete, coach, trainer and or etc. develops Covid19 at a school/facility? If a procedure is not in place - we all know what will happen - a gut check emotional response and programs will have to come to a screeching halt. This happened a few days ago at the University of Houston, where several football players who were doing voluntary drills contracted Covid. Within two hours all programs at the University were shut down. CIF or each school district must have a plan for what happens when one or more players get sick. This is inevitable. It would be better for CIF to dictate the plan so that schools all know what is going to happen. The second question is - how will games be contested? Will schools have testing facilities? Will refs, trainers, players from both teams, and etc. be tested the day of a contest? Temperatures taken at the door and etc. If a plan is not in place we risk hysterical reactions when Covid19 strikes.

Was reported 2 of the 147 football players at Iowa State tested positive and 8 other student athletes but I did not read they were closing the school/facility down, just self quarantine, so I guess they are going to see how this plays out. I'm guessing it won't go so well, but we shall see with time.
