    WIAC is meeting soon as well and expectation is they will cancel. Finally, the MIAC leadership is meeting in the next two weeks and, if expected, Walz extends the current pause on athletics through Jan. 1 and possibly even later, the MIAC will likely cancel as well.

    For those that haven't seen it yet, here's an article from the Washington Post on the probability that hockey is likely the riskiest of all sports to play from a Covid standpoint. It's a very interesting read and I highly recommend reading it.

    A DC paper wrote an article about hockey in New England. Meanwhile, in their own back yard, hockey in the DMV area is happening with many restrictions
    • locker rooms closed
    • masks on the bench
    • no out of area teams in for tournaments.
    • In Maryland, Montgomery, Prince George's and Charles counties only permit body contact (women's rules) to be played
    • electronic whistles

    Kids are getting COVID, but most of the cases are from family exposure, not from the ice rink.

    On topic, I think the D3 season is a goner.

    Not sure what your point is, but this administration has hung us out to dry, and D-3 hockey is truly the least of our worries right about now. Nobody is coming after your guns -and I own three myself- but this virus is going to take down a lot more Americans before Easter. A lot more.
    Come on, Steve. Lowe's benefits cover the cost of testing. If you were a "health care pro" it would also be covered. What you are claiming makes zero sense. Quit fibbing.

    We test so frequently because we care for our respective elderly parents... But, again, the very friggin least this current s*** show of an administration should have done was to ramp-up testing.

    Not sure where your getting tested. But the South Utica urgent care on Genesee St offers rapid testing whether you have been exposed/have symptoms or not. I know upwards of 20-25 people who have gone and got tested and haven’t heard of anyone spending a dime. I would be baffled if your insurance doesn’t cover it.

    Perhaps it’s not the administration you keep referring to,, maybe it’s the governors response! I live in Fl,, beyond being careful we live our lives as we did . I went to a 100 person wedding Friday , it was outdoors but there was dancing and fun! the Everblades played last night, won 4-0 ,, and I’m heading to the Bar to watch football soon ! So not everyone’s ***Tahoe is the same!

Ive heard this "limited test" rumor too. But I can assure you that they have at least 274...

    St Norbert recently left the Midwest Conference after 38 years. They are now members of the Northern Athletic Collegiate Conference (NACC.) Not sure this changes anything regarding Net Presence’s most recent post, but it should be noted that SNC won’t necessarily fall in line with other AD’s from the Midwest Conference.

    We go for testing some miles East, and it is indeed limited to 100 per day @ $100 a pop for asymptomatic people. We've already spent over 1K on it, and we have hospital-grade insurance. (That doesn't mean much, granted... We'd be far better off on Medicaid.)

    This country's response to the pandemic has been uneven, to be polite, and a complete disaster, to be frank.

    I don't think this is behind a pay wall........but please don't give me a hard time if it is.

    I have been away from here most of the fall, just trying to survive this very strange higher education landscape. I am teaching 2 smaller groups of upper level students this fall....so my exposure to students is somewhat limited as far as number of contacts, but I am teaching on-ground, face-to-face. UC has been testing all students and all employees once a week since mid August. We are using pool testing where 12-24 samples are mixed together and sent in for testing. If the pool comes back "hot" the pool members are contacted and sent for rapid testing. I have been informed that on two instances I had COVID positive students in my classes. They went into quarantine and I hoped to stay negative in the next two weeks testing. The 2nd time, where I was exposed to the student more than I might have wished (in 2 different labs in a two day period), after being informed of the exposure, my pool came back hot.....good greif! Fortunately, I was not the positive one in the pool. Things were starting to blow up just before Thanksgiving as the virus had gotten into the residence halls (earlier student cases were predominately off campus students). There were 4 positive pools the night I was called in for further testing.

    The Utica Jr Comets had to pay $50 each test the other day to play hockey but any first responder or essential worker is deemed free at 99% of the testing sites. I will say this, we've had officers from Buffalo who have been quarantined and had to get a test (symptom free) and they were pushed behind (rightfully so) those with symptoms. My 10U daughter had a 101.7 fever, called Urgent Care and was given a rapid test with in 30 minutes (Finger Lakes Region).

    I have a co worker who's inlaws all came down with it. (5 of them) 4 of them with ALL different symptoms and 1 with none. I had a fellow coach who had it and was at SUNY Upstate for 4 days but was more for observation. All lived. All fine.

    Now Bak, as far as SUNYAC goes. While I agree we should be playing, keep in mind New York is the ONLY state that has YET to allow hockey since the original shut down in March. If you think the all mighty is going to let College play when A. He won't even let kids play and B. There's no money to be made in hockey (especially DIII) ...just saying. And yes, this was probably 95% financial based why they aren't playing. It will cost me about $150 every weekend to get myself and my two players tested to just be able to DRIVE 3-4 hours to Pa to play a hockey game...normally against the same team you'd play in league...makes sense right $$

    If you're paying out of pocket for testing at work, you either need better representation, or negotiating skills.
