Sounds like the city commission in Fargo going to push thru a mask mandate for the city within the next couple of weeks. As one city commissioner stated..."it's a matter of life and death". Anyone hear this comment before in the last 6 months???

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

Walz visited an elementary school  in Moorhead on his "Soon to be distance learning only" tour of the state.

Talked to a group of the 3rd graders and said he had been "learning a lot about science tools over the last 6 months".

 

 

 

 

To which one kid raised his hand and said "That's funny......Osterholm too?"

Kids..........

Does anyone know where to find the media scoreboard for Minnesota Covid 19? 

Everyday we see the current number of active cases(new minus recovered) for North Dakota and every county but if Minnesota publishes this number it is well hidden.

I was just curious as to the difference in Cass County(recommended masks) and Clay County(required masks).  

You would think with Moorhead and Clay County right across the river that The Forum would want to have that number every day as well?

ND spike in hospitalizations and deaths largy seem to be a result of outbreaks in rural LTC facilities.

Masks for everyone and no youth activities including in person classes until old people in LTC facilities stop dying.........

The pandemic of old people going into nursing homes and then dying must be stopped!

Yup......it's a shame and a sham. 

Parents love the Walz nonsense of pivoting educational plans based on the moving target of cases per 100k per county.

 

MSHSL voted to restart FB and VB this fall on Monday. HS VB season starts this coming Monday but when matches start per Walz mandate the VB girls will play to empty gyms. No fans allowed. Good thing he's clinging to masks are the answer theory. 

My son's lacrosse season got cancelled, but he had a summer hockey camp that ran most of June and July. Parents had to drop their kids off and weren't allowed to stay and watch. He played in one tournament because my neighbor coached the team and anyone could watch as long as masks were worn, that was in July. He's in a fall league that runs twice a week in September and only one parent is allowed to watch, masks required. Everything took place in Moorhead at the youth arena. The rules aren't consistent and seem to change depending on the event. As of now the youth hockey season is supposed to go on as scheduled, but we'll see.

I think declaring September 23rd as Arbor Day is an affront to our prairie grasses.

He just saw a link and couldn't help but post it. Nothing of actual concern there.

Honest question. Where/how do you think the people in LTC facilities are getting exposed despite having very strict, if any, visitation policies? And considering they are already pretty much isolated from outside visitors, what is the solution to further protect them?

It kind of amazing. It’s almost like one of them is having a conversation with himself and two other alter egos.

Oops sorry, this one. My Facebook feed head this item that was causing some concern. I was wondering if someone knew anything about it.

You are looking for a specific solution when there isn't one. Anyone who understands virology isn't ignorant to this. This is unfortunately a virus that preys on the elderly especially those who are not well or healthy to begin with.  Not letting kids go to school or participate in athletics isn't the answer. No fans at HS VB in MN isn't  the answer. State and/or national lockdowns definitely aren't the answer. Redfield said masks are and will be as effective as any vaccine. I know someone  on the national vaccine tasks force and as of now any vaccine in trial shows limited efficacy on the elderly. At some point we all need to shallow the reality  of what this virus is and who it really effects and come to grips with it. Mask, quarantines, lockdowns, vaccines, blah blah blah, aren't going to give you the answer you are looking for.

 

But at least the U of M is testing sewage on its metro campus in hopes of  finding "positives" so to close down its campus for the year. Can't make this s@#t up......no pun intended.

I had found that. 

Was looking for current actives which Minnesota doesn't seem to publish?

But even based on the total number of cases it seems there is not much difference in the number of cases per capita in a mask optional vs. mask mandate scenario.

 Think the state puts something out weekly that is by county level.

Day by day active counts:  only thing I have found is at state level.

Mn was hit harder early on. But looking at daily infections/deaths between the two states, you’d never realize the mn has more than 7x ND’s population. Mn is currently much better off than ND.

In essence, the infection rate is the same. The population of Clay County is 64,222 (.02) the population of Cass County  is 181,923 (.026).

Milestone day here on Siouxsports. Goon has  just passed downvote darell in career negative reps. Congrats!

This thread is now more popular and active than the entire history of the all sports threads other than Hockey, Football, and Mens Bouncyball.

Truly doing the Lords work here during the plandemic hiatus..... I say we shoot for overtopping basketball and we each get a free hat.... or for some of the less mentally gifted at least a sticker for their helmet, sorry Alphadukeofdissapointment.... one per person, not per handle.

Need to see where the thread actually sits in realtion the true kings of the forum history, such as the logo and nickname legends.

With Cass County doing way more testing per 10K capita.

Ditto to Oxbow's response. You are asking for an absolute solution that doesn't exist.  It's the nature of life, some people will always get sick and unfortunately die.  On many issues but especially with Covid it has been eye opening and scary how laser focused in people get and they are unwilling (and in some cases unable) to look at the big picture.  You are totally discounting the human experience being taken away from 99% of the population in an effort to literally squeeze an extra year out of someone that is living in a LTC facility.....that if they are like my grandpa was ...and many old people in that situation are.......may not even want that extra year of limping by.

The population of North Dakota is 762,062 and we've conducted a whopping 596,181 COVID-19 test. I'd like to see the stats on how many of these folks are asymptomatic. I do agree with @Oxbow6 that there's too much focus on the positive tests and not on the hospitalizations and deaths. Unfortunately, this has a political issue and not a health issue. Some leaders have used lockdowns to assume power and control. There's more and more evidence piling up that lockdowns don't work. From Bloomberg, not a bastion of conservative thought

 

Quote

 

Australia’s first lockdown was one of the most successful in the world, bringing down cases to just a handful a day between March and when it ended in May. But the country’s second round of locking down is proving a cautionary tale of just how hard it is to go there again.

As the virus resurged in Melbourne, its 5 million people were ordered to once again stay at home except for essential work, exercise and medical care. Despite that -- and a mandatory mask order -- the city is half way through the six-week lockdown and the rate of infection isn’t slowing. New cases in Victoria state hit a fresh record of 723 on Thursday, Australia’s single worst day since the pandemic began.

One thing about infection rates. IF this thing is such an easily communicable and spread virus as the fear and control mongers have made it out to be, wouldn't it have infected so many more by now?

The sheep will say that masks, distancing and shutdowns helped. No. 

The truths need to come out, and this Bullshitery of daily testing will never allow for that, daily testing fits the narrative of fear.

IF the US or even a state would put the money to antibody testing the population we would see that this virus HAS been spread and infected a MUCH MUCH higher percentage of the population, it has to have its just impossible thatbit hasn't.

However if we did that and found that yes the vast majority have already been exposed, didnt even develop syptoms and just moved on with life, a few things would be certain.

1: The infection rate is extreamly high.

2: The rate of developing symptoms is extremely low.

3: The actual hospitalization and complication rate will be infadecimally low.

4: The death rate is and will be in the end, statistically irrelevant.

 

None of this will actually happen because there will be no way to control people if the true rates are exposed.

1.8 million on a "wear your mask" PR campaign.... utter fleecing. Use that for antibody testing and it can all be over.
