Default Clay County shuts down all sports
Looks like Clay county has shutdown all sport activities for 14 days. This can not bode well for the rest of the districts.

Evidently someone associated with the program must have tested positive. That being said.....IMO....this is a prime example of why the likelihood of having a season is in peril. If a season starts....then suddenly it you have to shut down a program or multiple programs....not only do you have Covid-19 concerns, but you also have fitness and conditioning issues. As bad as I want to have a season.....just not convinced itís gonna come off.

It was a precautionary shut down due to a spike in cases in the area from whats being said on Facebook. As far as any one knows here there hasn’t been anyone involved in sports testing positive in the county at all.

I don't understand why some sports fans have been thriving on the negative since all this started - like they don't want to have sports again.

I'd heard some positive Covid cases had come from workers there at the golf course, doesn't the Clay Co Golf team use that facility? I thought it was a good decision by the administrators, if thats true.

Which makes me think - how do you allow one sport to practice and tell the golf team sorry you can't practice. This will be an issue for the upcoming season, what happens when you get a positive case on a team? does that mean every team mate and family member needs to be tested what about opponents they'd just competed against, will all those kids need to be tested as well?

Iím very skeptical there will be a football season and even more so after the guidance that was put out for schools. There are just too many variables that canít be planned for.

Sometimes the REALITY is negative. COVID-19 is serious and schools are liable for their athletes.

I pray this never happens, but what happens if an athlete catches COVID-19 and dies? What happens if 8 players test positive on the same team?

It's a global pandemic. I love sports dearly, but I love my kids, parents and grandparents much more.

The reality in some cases seems to be promoting fear. I saw one story where the headline said "several" schools stopped practicing due to fears of illness when, in fact, the story just had proof of two schools out of 200-plus had problems. An athlete could catch it anywhere, but it seems the odds are pretty good that teenagers aren't in a lot of danger when looking at the numbers. I've seen stories about numerous college athletes being diagnosed, but then you hear nothing else. I assume they have recovered or we would have heard.

They would rather have their way politically than return to normal life. Itís the only way they can win. Just keep pushing fear down everyoneís throats so they can get mail in voting for the November election. Then let the corrupt Democratic Party and their people on the ground finish the entire plan and cheat to win the election.

Liberalism and Socialism is more of a global pandemic and a threat to the world than Covid 19 is.

I just don't get the logic behind these decisions. You can get the virus anywhere.

Are kids more likely to find out they have it and get treatment if they are having their temps and symptoms checked at school, practice and games?

Are they more likely to spread the virus, not knowing they have it by hanging out at home and with friends or by being under supervision at school with close monitoring?

By going back to school and playing sports (with all the precautions in place) we will slow the spread, not increase the spread.

I believe the safest place for kids to be is practice, being monitored daily for symptoms.

I wish the kids could be quarantined at the schools and let the coaches have complete care of them, those parents who could, would voluntarily pay a small weekly amount for their kids food. I know several folks, (Me when kids were in school) who'd pay to get their crazy kids kept safe all summer long.

As someone who really hopes we have a season and would love to see one played out even if it was shortened, how can you realistically think we have a season or even a school season? Schools are shutting down all athletics if one person tests positive in any sport. So letís say week 1 you play a team on Friday, someone tests positive that weekend.. what happens next? You forfeit your next two games because everyone has to go on a 14 day quarantine? Same with the classroom.. you have a student test positive after school. What happens? They contact trace bacj through every class, every student interacted with, each teacher, and all those people quarantine for 14 days? Just donít see how people realistically think things can happen.

Well don't want to bring politics in here, because every other aspect of life has it, unfortunately. But I did see where POTUS Trump said that WE need to have a school year. But I agree with a lot of other people. We've never hid from the flu or anything else. Why are we hiding now? If its soooo contagious then it would get us anyway? Just run it full throttle and let us build up an immunity to it. Not to mention staying in the house lowers ours to everything else too. I would hate to see it, but worst case we have the technology to stream every game. Let them play with no fans and stream it, charge people to view it to cover costs. I don't want to see that happen, but I don't want the season canceled either.

I read in an article this past week Texas has voted to allow high school teams to stream their games for the first time in a long time. Really hoping we see ball.. just not a lot of faith in the powers that be.

Would rather see it moved to the spring rather than outright cancelled.

Moving football to spring makes a lot of sense I think, it would allow for the safest option although to turn around and then play next fall (regularly) would be hard too - a lot of tough decisions have to be made.

It looks like Tennessee is pushing the governor to give high school sports an exemption from the "state of emergency" like college and pro sports were given. If that happens then they would be allowed to play under the "state of emergency".
