    Thoughts only. Body condoms are way too confining.

    Ya, she wouldn't be around anybody. It's just weird man, no symptoms. Only brought her in to get tested yesterday, because she never has been. What if she hadn't. She'd be at the gym.....with a mask and socially distanced..... but still.

    Sorry, but you should isolate your daughter just in case she runs into someone, this thing is spreading like fire.

    So do they call up some G-league video scrub to take your place for the time being? Do you leave sub plans for how to try to not suck at your job?

    All jokes aside, I hope you all recover quickly and it sounds like it’s not serious.

    They will TRY to replace me with somebody from LA. HA! Funny thing is, in a market like that, this late, they will get somebody who works entertainment like Jeopardy or American Idol and not LIVE sports. Will be watching hoping to see as many mistakes on the broadcast as we will see on the court ! HA!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Just got home from another round of tests at the practice facility. I’m officially what they call a staff member under contract tracing protocol. Just learned that this morning. If the game was at home today, I’d be working. Saw this today. They said my daughters levels were mid 30s and wasn’t’ contagious at the moment of her first test Wednesday. So she either had JUST got it, or was just finishing. This shit is all so weird. Hope you guys and your FAMS are safe out there.

    hiding the play on court might be a good move for spectators! Last game cracked me up when the radio crew excitedly said.."And just like that they got it back within 20!"

    Curious what everyone's booster status was?

    Easy to say after the fact, but not surprised at this.

    With everyone vaccinated and probably not showing symptoms, guessing no tests beforehand. If there were tests, they likely were not going to detect lower levels. With that, more than likely it was an entire family household putting COVID-19 in the air and not a single person.

    Masks help, but that air has to go somewhere. If the house was not ventilated, With time, it eventually spreads to everyone. The mask only increases the time you can likely spend around someone infected before exposure.

    Contaminated air does not care if you are eating or not. With 20 people, the six feet recommendation would be pretty tough to adhere to.

    On the plus side, it sounds like you atleast tried. Guessing many families were not masking and are going to be in worse shape for it. With masks and vaccines, you limited the amount spread. The odds of hospitalization are significantly lower for everyone.

    Our phones are ringing off the hook with people needing tests or vaccines. Wished we had the ability to give both 24/7.

    I've had 8 boosters and then I sell my blood to anti-vaxxers.

    Ya, hearing that other coworkers of mine had family together and DIDN'T wear mask and nobody got sick. Everyone with us wore masks. So many variables. Really wishing we would have not gotten together now obviously. Prided ourselves on always making the right decisions.... until this.
