The ripple effect is what gets crazy. Now, everyone that had recent contact with them (within last 72 hrs right?) has to be notified and I believe they are requested to quarantine. Let's say, Coach X did a workout with this player yesterday. Now, he has gone home and learns of the positive test this morning. Of course, before he found out, he had contact with his wife and kids so now they are involved in the scenario. Not to mention, he had stopped at a friend's house on his way home to chat about plans for the weekend. Naturally, they weren't using masks as they are good friends and both healthy. Meanwhile, his friend went to visit his parents later that evening, along with his wife and infant. Now suddenly they could have been exposed. And oh yeah, his neighbor ran over to bring back the drill he borrowed over the weekend. And so on and so on...
Anyway, you all know how the snowball rolls.
I don't care what safety protocols are in place, you aren't gonna stop people from being exposed no matter what. I know every athletics department is desperate to play intercollegiate sports, but there will be non-stop delays and health concerns everywhere. Just look at MLB right now. I don't see how they make it to the end of August. Too many games being postponed, players getting it and passing it on, etc.
