Their contacts will be severely limited. This is so wildly inaccurate. The hair salon in Missouri had 2 stylists who tested positive and some 150 were EXPOSED. However, as of a few days ago, 42 clients had tested negative. So nearly 1/3 do not have covid. It is a fact that in Alabama ZERO people under the age of 25 have died from this. Football players are likely to be far healthier than the general public. Perhaps offensive lineman might be concerned as some appear to be overweight, not just "big". But your thinking is exactly what caused unnecessary public panic. It's up to the coaches if they prefer to take that risk. Masks are not for protecting someone from getting it, rather from someone giving it. A coach wearing a mask as some sort of self-protective shield is not realistic. Just over 40% of those 100k are from nursing homes. They aren't going to college football games or practices. Back out the percent of those with underlying conditions which is 90% (low side), and what you have left is very much flu mortality rates. gubo&palanka likes this.
