Found it.

 

And it all ties back. 

 

"The approach was first reported in Germany and the University of Nebraska this spring."

 

Yup and it's only used in low risk people who would be tested regardless.

This is not what they describe in this report.  I get your point but they described exactly what I said. I have no reason to doubt it. They interviewed a health dpt official on it.  

 

Based on the sources that @Nebfanatic and I found it is not like you describe it you left out a lot and made a lot of jumps. You honestly peddle a lot of bull crap regarding covid on this board.

Question: B1G, are you going to play football this fall?   B1G:

The original goal was to “flatten the curve” or so we were told. Somewhere we shifted to cancel everything until it is gone or a vaccine is found.

Eh, it's been pretty apparent for a couple weeks that OPS was trending that way.  As far as I know, no one else is.

 

It's going to get pretty interesting to see how many kids are going to try to transfer elsewhere for this fall.

 

I fully expect that, by the end of next week, most schools in Omaha will follow suit.

Still - what is the difference.  It seems like a good way to mass test but why do it for people coming into a healthcare setting to expose sick and or health workers.   

Explain please!   Thanks anyway.

Ok I'll break this down simple.

 

EVERYONE has to be tested before coming to a hospital for procedures like surgeries that have to be done. This is happening regardless of the type of testing. These are people who have no symptoms and are at a very low risk of having the disease, but they have to be tested anyway.

 

They have shown that they can take batches of samples from these low risk people run them at the same time and save resources. The hospital reports that 1% of test have come back positive causing them to be retested. So, it's very rare they have to be retested. They report in the article they've saved 2,300 tests and tons of PPE by doing it this way.

 

When you are coming in for surgery you are tested and then told to self quarantine until the procedure regardless of your results. So, if they do get a positive and people have to be retested they did not quarantine any longer than they would have anyway.

 

This is all so that they can make sure patients coming in for NON-COVID procedures are negative and don't expose health workers or others at a hospital. This actually pretty smart and kudos to the "scientists" who came up with effective and efficient ways to keep people safe.

Someone mentioned transfers, I forget how it works but I think you have to submit paperwork, transfer, then sit 90 days.

 

My guess is that this will be changed and you will be able to play right away.

If you're a big time recruit (Dickerson, Rollins, even Fidone) and football is moved to Spring, I don't see why you'd play.

Yeah, those guys don't need to do a thing, they are set with offers.  

Who knows what will happen.

Why would they test 3 days before instead of 1?

Wonder what tests they are using. False results are a problem both ways but I've read the different tests vary on which is more prevalent. 

 

ohhhh

The NSAA said they weren't changing the transfer rules so the kids would have to sit and you can't use sports as a reason to transfer.  It would be pretty obvious if a bunch of athletes were transferring to Elkhorn or even Lincoln if they were trying to stay in Class A.

Yeah, I won't be surprised anywhere in the Metro.  But I haven't really heard anything about that happening in the rest of the state.

Ya unless you can source this, there is no way this is true.

It's partially true.  They're not doing it to save money, they're doing it because testing capacity is still lacking.  I watched a doctor explain it this way.  You take 12 people who need testing and give them all just one test.  If it comes back negative, then you've just saved 11 test kits.  If it comes back positive, then you'd give everybody a test which would have happened anyway currently.  It does save on testing, especially in places that haven't been hit hard by Covid.

Omaha Public Schools set to announce no Fall sports. Superintendent informing Board of Ed today.  Ouch. Not good sign for HS football in State

Oregon announced the same yesterday.  I wonder if it's possible to play baseball and football at the same time or if kids will have to choose?

Ya I finally found a source that explained it, but that is not how it was being presented.
