Until I hear from the NCHC, I am not changing my plans. They better make a decision on that this week.

The decision they are making now is to have it without fans or cancel it all together.  Fans in attendance seems a distant 3rd place of the 3 options.

The NCAA tournament games are being held without fans. I have not heard anything from the NCHC regarding their tournament.

Why are malls not being closed?  Or offices with hundreds of people in them?  

I don't understand the thought process on eliminating all sporting events but leaving open congregation centers.  Anybody?

I work for SAP. Offices in SEA/TAC suburbs and the Bay were urged to work from home as of last Friday, with exception to personnel that need to be in the office, but even then asked to exercise judgment. Offices in MPLS and Virginia received word in the last half hour to follow suit. 

Could not agree more that things are being blown out of proportion by some but the question still remains, no matter what the trends or infection rates are, both in and out of comparison to other known diseases or epidemics, would we rather take too many precautions so as to mitigate its spread, or let this doubt/skepticism overrule and actually end up with a humanitarian crisis?

Gonna err on the side of caution. That said, if people choose to inform themselves on COVID-19 in its current state and how its affecting everyone, which I strongly believe a simple 10-15 minutes of research will make a world of difference, then this sense of hysteria will start to dissolve.

This is my biggest fear, that this is the new normal.  

I'm not willing to live like this with annual shutdowns and total disruptions of our society.  I'd rather live my life and just deal with whatever happens.

But people smarter than you know what is best for you.

I stated this earlier....the precedent has now been set.

This is the new normal.

Eat dessert first.

You don't need to be Nostradamus to see what's coming here.

IF or moreso WHEN the NCAA cancels the tournies for BBball hockey and all other spring sports.

UND and NCHC needs to cancel this weekends series IMMEDIATELY.

Although i believe they all want to see how this weekends "no fans" games play out. If they can hold of the hysteria until Monday, they will play, but i dont think its going to happen.

Odds the games are played this weekend?  If the NCHC is going to cancel for next week, there isn't much of a reason to play the games this week.  (I know they would impact PWR, but that is kinda out the window at the moment...)

I really doubt the NCHC will hold the Frozen Faceoff with fans.  Especially now that basketball conference tournaments are being played with no fans and this weekends games are being played with no fans.

I will be happy as long as they still have it. At this rate I'm doubtful we have a national tournament.

Oh, I agree with you. But I am not cancelling my hotel reservations until I hear something official.

NCAA is likely going to cancel all activities the rest of the year.  Really no reason to have a conference quarterfinal series if there is no conference tournament or NCAA appearance.

I just hope they suspend before cancel. Give it a shot. We have two weeks until hockey is set to begin.

Do any of you remember this and how did we and the media react to it?

Starting spring of 2009, H1N1 infected about 100 million Americans, killing about 75,000 and sending 936,000 to the hospital, according to CDC estimates.

Who needs to worry about Corona when the market and economy completely crashes.

We will see civil unrest in some metro areas in the upcoming days/weeks.

I'm thinking hours...

Nowhere near this panic

And the administration at the time (2009) was VERY slow to do anything (which may or may not have been the appropriate reaction).  Just another indication of how this stuff is reported and judged.

Humm... I think the NCAA shuts down the season and awards the National Championship to the team that is #1 in the pairwise.

Stopping unnecessary gatherings of large groups of people isn't gonna stop this from spreading. At least keep the tournaments going with no fans. We are here for a good time not a long time.

And would they award that for basketball?
