I have 2 college students who are currently on campus at different schools - one super small and one very large. The virus is not spreading in the classrooms or during practice, where protocols are being followed well. It is spreading while hanging out with friends outside of your immediate unit, going to parties, going out to eat, etc. We all think/expect that team member hang out together but the reality is that often times they do not. They have their little cliques as well. So it is fully reasonable that only a few gymnasts might be quarantined.I'm sure some college are doing right and that they are doing it the best they can.
Some things, however, are just puzzling. For instance, there was four gymnasts and two coaches from Florida out due to covid protocols and yet the rest of the team still competed. Knowing covid tests are not 100% reliable, I hardly find it reassuring.
Besides, things like high fiving don't seem necessary at this point...
