The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, one of the largest schools in the country to bring students to campus for in-person teaching, said Monday it will pivot to all-remote instruction for undergraduates after testing showed a pattern of rapid spread of the novel coronavirus.

this is after the president of UNC-CH went on the record 2 weeks ago disputing the county's health dept and saying the university plan was basically failsafe and students would be fine.

the good news is that the collaboration between the NBA, the players association and Yale Medical has produced a new test that only requires saliva and little to no chemicals to process. this test is far easier to administer, much cheaper and less reliant on chemicals. it could greatly expand testing capacity and access. so, if (and it's a frustratingly big if) there's resources in place to track and trace positives it will become much easier to identify carriers and control spread. Since, we may need to live with COVID for a while longer, it's crucial to have functioning systems to track where it is, and isn't, spreading through the population. with that, you can resume some careful group and social functions.

Notre Dame moves all classes off campus for at least two weeks.

Problem at UNC was off campus parties that the University had no control over. Now everybody there
is paying the price for stupid behavior.

lots of college cases traced to frats so far. people don't seem to get that this is disease that spreads by close contact. outdoor activities are pretty safe. people widely spread out in large indoor spaces is pretty safe. singing in church without a mask is not safe. eating in a crowded restaurant is not safe. sitting in a full classroom is not safe. working in tight quarters is not safe. living in crowded housing is not safe. unfortunately, the national response seems to be only partially based on real risk. where i live restaurants are open, churches are having indoor services, planes fly in and out, people are working inside around co-workers without masks (even at the Dept of Health), but hiking trails are closed. parks are off limits, cops are giving $1000 citations to poor people sitting around drinking beer with a couple friends outside while people with money gather in big groups unmasked inside restaurants. there's a short term financial interest clouding the short term health and long term financial reality.

RE: As the fall semester begins, universities prepare for students-potential cases
Michigan State University will conduct the fall semester as online-only instruction, its president announced Tuesday afternoon, days before students were set to move in for the fall.

"Given the current status of the virus in our country — particularly what we are seeing at other institutions as they repopulate their campus communities — it has become evident to me that, despite our best efforts and strong planning, it is unlikely we can prevent widespread transmission of COVID-19 between students if our undergraduates return to campus," President Samuel Stanley said in a letter to students.

That's terrible. Where is that happening? I'd like to thank and congratulate the cops for issuing those fines only to the poor people. Maybe that will bring attention to the idiots that enacted such a law, but then allowed restaurants where people with money do not have similar requirements.

The worse thing is, under Joe Biden's proposal, it would be a nationwide mandate to wear a mask any time you go outside. I guess the poor beer drinkers just won't catch a break. And of course, you could never trust the cops to do the right thing if they are given discretion on when to enforce a law, so nab everyone and issue a fine to all non-mask wearers immediately.

Miami-Dade all indoor dining is closed. Beaches, parks are opened. Church services are online. Open container laws in effect. Restaurants violating outdoor and alcohol restrictions get $15,000 fine and
24 hour shutdown. People with money have private chefs.

We now RV full-time and spend a vast majority of our time enjoying the great outdoors (as the Unicat only has ~125 sq ft of living space — think cabin fever). It is absolutely ludicrous to require people to wear masks outdoors under those circumstances, not that common sense prevails in most circumstances that the government sticks their (mask-covered) noses into.

Since you made me look it up, you need to watch the entire video since it nearly put me to sleep in the first 40 seconds. His mask mandate to all governors starts around the 1:25 mark.

Thanks for taking the time (and no, I didn't subject myself to the whole thing). 04-cheers Biden did indeed say that every American should be mandated to wear a mask every time he or she goes outside. I support precautions, but that proposal is ridiculously broad.
