  • Or am I reading that wrong?

    Comment


    • I was wondering if this would happen after Maine put their program on pause earlier in the week. Not sure if it's related.

        It does not matter how you are reading it. BU decided the most prudent action is to go on pause based on the information they have (of which they have no obligation to share with you).

        • Lol ok buddy. Just call it a season already.

          • Through the end of the month. That's what, 4 days? If it only ends up being that long, we should be fine, and maybe even better off in the long run. I was looking forward to the games against BC for sure, but hopefully we can still get them in before long.

              Given how these things usually go, a 4 day pause would seem highly unlikely and really kind of odd if you just decided to pause athletics for 4 days when it's not even clear if any teams have been impacted.

                Their reasoning is students recently moved back on campus and more than expected tested positive. They now have the highest number of students in quarantine housing they've had all year.

                Apparently the university health staff said the university is at risk of an outbreak. No indication athletes tested positive.

                The reasoning is a tad opaque, but not the worst.
                ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                • I heard from a source in the Maine program that several hockey players have tested positive early this week. Maine played BU this weekend so maybe BU is being cautious and awaiting a clean week of test results for their players before playing this week?

                  • BU's COVID dashboard can be found here: https://www.bu.edu/healthway/community-dashboard/

                    Out of 14,661 students that were tested over the past 7 days, 0.71% of those students tested positive. 116 students are currently in isolation, which is the most they have had.

                    BU's 1st day of classes was on Monday, with return/move-in to campus was distributed over the prior 2 weeks. If scrolling to the Daily Positive Test Results chart, the recent trend of positive tests on the BU campus is comparably high to when the hockey program went on pause following Thanksgiving and thru the end of Fall semester.

                            0.71% is far better than the general population.

                            • So instead of playing these games, the players are doing what exactly? Sit in their rooms and stare at the walls? #NotLikely

                              Let's go at this another way: So no positive cases on the team. What's the risk of playing these games? Is the thinking that since there is a tick-up in cases on campus, these guys are going to class and therefore risk is increased, so ... Aren't they tested? I'm just trying to understand the science here.
