NYtimes ran an article today saying the CDC is urging a return to schools. The quote below from the article isn’t a good look for wrestling however. Hard to comprehend how schools are closed and when they are open masks are required yet we are having wrestling. I love the sport, but not sure it’s worth it this year.
“The C.D.C. also published two related studies on Tuesday. One was an investigation of a high school wrestling tournament in Florida in December that became a super-spreader event, leading to at least 79 infections and one death.
The tournament brought together 10 schools and 130 athletes and coaches, and 30 percent of participants were infected with the coronavirus. Thirty-eight individuals went on to transmit the virus to at least 41 others, including family members. (The full number is not yet known, because fewer than half the participants were tested.)”
