Am I the only one that sees a potential catastrophic situation with a lot of kids (and teachers) particularly at the high school and college level coming down with the virus necessitating all schools being shut down?

You know there's plenty of people who live here who won't do that. Its mandated in public spaces now and people are running around lying about medical conditions they don't have so they can be exempt from it. Yet, there's few to no medical conditions that would preclude you from wearing a mask.......................

I have only seen a few rare instances of folks flouting the mask rule.

No. I don’t know about everywhere, but I’d be shocked if we didn’t see this at least in pockets.

Florida and California had their deadliest days today as well.

Probably not a good sign that your 3 most populated states have their highest death tolls at the same time?

We had the most cases in Idaho today with 500, twice as many as the peak when this first started. The big problem is the more people that get infected means there are more to pass it on to others. This thing could get out of hand and go to herd immunity (if it behaves like a typical virus) in a hurry which can be both good and bad.

Update from our COVID scare over the weekend. We all got tested on Tuesday and got our results back this afternoon. Happy to report that my grandmother, uncle, and the rest of my family all tested negative.

Nah, that title goes to Angel Hernandez... with West and C.B. Bucknor not too far behind.

Schools are going to be interesting.

The American Academy of Pediatricians put out a statement a few weeks ago with its thoughts about how to reopen schools.

But some of it just seems unrealistic. For example,

Even if not a teacher, anyone who has spent at least one day observing or volunteering in a classroom knows a teacher cannot stay 6 feet away from the children all day.

And the 6 feet might not even matter if you can cut the air in a classroom after a few hours. Can you imagine the fear in the teachers and staff being forced to go to work like this? If schools open and things don't feel adequately safe, we'll see mass retirements, quitting, and strikes.

Angel Hernandez is bad, but West is confrontational to the point of being cartoonish

Agreed. Though Hernandez did eject a Cubs 7th Inning Stretch guest conductor at one point.

In terms of umpiring ability, I'd rank them as Hernandez, Bucknor, and then West. In terms of being a jackass, it's West, Hernandez, Bucknor.

My first reaction is this is not going to fly and could end up being a catastrophe if numerous teachers and high school level kids (that are most susceptible) get the virus and bring it home to parents. The situation needs to be monitored closely and at the first sign of virus infections schools should be shut down immediately.

Hey Modesto what does your death graph show now?  I’m not asking to give you shit more interested in looking at timing of delay and might was well use consistent data.
