    Went for a run at lunch at a not well traveled path. Two high schoolers from the local school ran by running and talking I’m assuming cross country.
    Then another group of 5 which got an old man look as I gave them a wide birth. The next group was 10-15. Which got a 10 yard into the trees “you have to be fucking kidding me”. Fuck.

    I've got dozens of these anecdotes.
    I definitely think the 10 person group thing is highly obnoxious given the times, but a pair doesn't bother me - until it becomes clear that they have no intent of collapsing single file as we pass each other, which really pisses me off. But in reality, we're not catching this thing from briefly passing one another in the open air.

    Odd are it isn’t happening. But 10 kids running together daily like that with no restrictions is not great bob. And the school just went in person. People are acting like it is over.

    Oh sorry
    To be clear, those kids absolutely could be transmitting to one another. I just meant that for you out on your run it isn't really a big deal.

    So this has gotten more complicated ...

    SIL's symptoms are getting worse 11 days after testing positive.

    The student who infected her is now on a ventilator.

    3 days ago the school district announced they had no positive cases (despite the original student, my SIL and 5 others in her class testing positive ... all symptomatic)

    My SIL is also getting her PhD so when she told the University that she couldn't teach class because she tested positive, the COVID team at Tech called her and asked a ton of questions for contact tracing. Once they heard where she most likely got the virus, they went ballistic and are currently investigating why the school district didn't report the positives to the city. Now SIL is getting calls from the City and the teachers union and the school district.

    Fun.

    "It's time for me to go back to Florida."

    Wear a mask and comply with the mandate you hag

    https://www.mariettatimes.com/news/...g-middle-school-game-for-mask-non-compliance/

    A Marietta City Schools parent has been detained and arrested following noncompliance with state mask mandates during an eighth-grade football game at Logan this evening according to MCS Athletic Director Cody Venderlic.

    “I’m grateful that it didn’t happen in Marietta, but it saddens me that it was Marietta that caused it in Logan,” said Venderlic. “As athletic directors, we’ve talked about this too and the biggest challenge about dealing with visiting fans is people behave much better at home than when they’re on the road.”

    Two cell phone videos were publicly shared by one Tiffany Lynn and one Tim Ryan, Marietta City Schools fans at Logan on social media during the game Wednesday.

    Venderlic stated he has been in constant communication with Marietta City Schools Superintendent Will Hampton, Marietta High School Principal Chad Rinard and Marietta Middle School Principal Brittany Schob concerning the incident and information relayed to him during the escalation by Logan Athletic Director Theresa Schultheiss.

    Schultheiss said the venue hosted 300 fans for the game Wednesday, with only two individuals, the alleged mother and grandmother in the videos who were “having issues with compliance.”

    “This rule has been in effect since we were told we could play,” said Schultheiss. “Everyone that came through ticketing tonight was reminded, we had regular announcements over the PA reminding you that mouths and noses needed to be covered and we had signs at the bathrooms.”

    Both Venderlic and Hampton asked that all fans remember what the rules are, with the focus and goal to allow students to play.

    “The governor and the (Ohio) health department have made it very clear that masks are required indoor and outdoor at sports facilities. They’re just part of the expectation,” said Venderlic. “They’re one of the requirements the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) brought down and said that if we’re going to be able to have fall sports we’re going to have to social distance and we’re going to have to wear masks.”

    In review of the videos, it appears that the woman arrested had a mask in her right pocket, with American flag imagery printed upon it.

    “I am really disappointed,” said Hampton after learning of the incident. “If you chose not to (wear a mask) then you threaten not only our ability to have sports but put your ability to watch as a spectator in jeopardy as well.”

    MCS Board Member Doug Mallett is also seen in both of the videos, rising when the woman appears to have been tased by the police officer administering the arrest.

    ‘It escalated pretty fast into an ugly situation, he tased her pretty fast,” said Mallett. “I didn’t see where she was putting anybody at risk, I guess that’s a Logan rule. It depends on interpretation, it’s a state rule, but I thought there was some wiggle room if you have health issues. I tried to stay out of it until he got the taser out.”

    Mallett said he hoped “cooler heads prevailed” after witnessing both the MCS mother and grandmother escorted to police vehicles.

    “Hopefully they released her and forgot about the resisting arrest,” he said.

    In the video posted by Tiffany Lynn, the police officer and Logan official are joined at the bottom of the stands by a second officer.

    “Our other options are no fans — which is not what we want to do,” said Schultheiss. “The other option is to stop the game and then we send kids home. I don’t want to hurt these kids. We’re here to respect the players and let the kids play.”

    Logan Police Department confirmed that the incident remains under investigation.

    Alabama Dept of Public Health finally called me today about my positive test from 9/12. The lady asked me about my symptoms and then asked who all in my family I had exposed. I asked her if she wanted to know about my staff and she said no they only do contact tracing with family members now :facepalm:. I mean I guess if its going to take that long to call people with positive test results there isn't much point in contact tracing at all.
