Governor Wolf: There are no plans to change the school sport proposal
I have been informed that you have received a letter from the Pennsylvania Internal Athletes Association regarding the issue you have just told them and that they believe it is still a viable route to fall. . And did you receive the letter? Are you ready? I think I haven’t seen it yet, but I think I have received the letter. And certainly we are in touch with PI Double A. But again, as I said in the answer to What What’s Your Name again? Grace. As I said in replying to Grace, we are trying to do everything we can to make sure we get our kids back to school. And I don’t know how you know, transportation of any degree with age, population across borders will help in our efforts to mitigate this disease and bring us back to school. So let’s pause that. Should focus on learning, and to the extent that whatever happens hinders that, I think now we have to be careful again. What I did was get an introduction. I am a parent. My kids went to school. My children are P double athletes. And here is my recommendation. I also recommend that we as you know this summer, the Pennsylvanians, avoid going to Jersey Shore. I’m sorry. That’s it. That is my recommendation. You do what you want, and the school districts will do what they want. Here is my recommendation. It was then. It is still. Anything else? Well, said they don’t want to go against your guide at the moment that they want to meet you and they recognize the offer, but they’re not willing to do that to go against the suggestion at this time. What can they say to you that might change the suggestion? And are you concerned that student athletes have competed at the tourism level in reenactment tournaments without the same guidelines and safety recommendations that have been taken? Yes, I was confused, and I’m not sure what they could say. That will change my sense of what I believe is the right thing to do again. They have the right to make their own decisions. I realize that I am just a man who can be governor, but I am someone who has an opinion on what we have to do here. But I think anyone who really looks at this and says it this way has to sort this phase back on, back to life as we wish. And to do that, I bet it would require a really powerful test mode where we get quick results on where we can easily apply the test and it. will ask for follow up contact. We’re building capacities in both of those areas and working on things, but we haven’t done yet. So we want to go back to life because I think New Zealand has done a great job, that they are back to normal there. They’re dancing, going to the movies and all that, it’s great not wearing a mask, but they’re an island they can isolate them from. Say we can’t do that. Here, the revival of Pennsylvania showed that researchers didn’t come because of the things we didn’t do in Pennsylvania because people were coming and bringing things from the southwest on the West End onto I. 95 from the south. So I think you know, when I make suggestions, I always try to do the best I can. I am thinking the best, you. But I serve by my experience here as a parent, and I’m not sure whether I will set priorities for my family. I think I’ve put education there all over the country. Wouldn’t it be safer to leave them in a controlled environment in a school where masks, remote temperature checks, and the like were in place? If they don’t get that chance and they go try it and find it in their own travel program, is it not regulated by anyone? Wouldn’t it be safer to have these sports in school? I’m not sure. Well, I think we can develop a hierarchy of what’s safer where what’s completely safe is isolating yourself in your way. Don’t want to do it that way. Want to go back to school? We want to go back to doing things that are really necessary for the people, the children themselves, Andi. I think we develop that hierarchy. We should put the most important things at the top of the hierarchy and try to decide what confusing decisions could be about less import.If I could ask you a question this run, We get a lot of questions from parents about what data is being used. Have you considered contact tracking or things of that nature? With the volunteer exercises the governor allowed earlier this summer? Have you seen flare-ups because of those ways? And besides, what are your concerns about student athletes getting stuck at home? We have received feedback from many parents who are seeing a negative trend in their students as a pediatrician. What are you seeing on that front? Will that involve you? Sure. Also, among them are a few different questions, all related to the first one, the Georgia problem you mentioned is a specific article in the CDC and the so-called MMWR about a particular camp. can be found in Georgia, where a lot of beer activity has spread and many children get sick. Andi, a lot of children are isolated and isolated. And that’s the article, a reference article specifically about Georgia. Yes, and one thing I would like to give the governor’s recommendation includes the entertainment tournaments you’re discussing. So it’s not just a recommendation for P IA. It’s also a recommendation for entertaining leagues to suspend sports until January 1. So it was comprehensive. And therefore, we don’t have a lot of detailed or quantitative data from contact tracking. You know, there aren’t that many. There was some activity, but not like we’ll see in the fall. And so kids don’t go back to school and they don’t do sports at school, so I can’t have data on that until it happens. There is data from several other states that Asai is alluding to, but we also make the same recommendation, which is something the governor gave based on the same evidence that the state of Penn only canceled the sport until date. January 1 that the Big 10 recently canceled all sports until January 1 where Pac 12 Jeffs canceled all sports until January 1. And that’s the same data about contagiousness. spread of the virus on the impact on Children, which we are seeing in Mawr and many other states. The idea that Children won’t get sick because this is false, and that Kids get sick. Some Children have become very ill, including the one I just mentioned, which can lead to heart disease and rancidity, heart disease and heart inflammation and can have long term effects. Therefore, the idea that Children are somehow immune from this disease is false. That they cannot have serious side effects from this disease is false. In addition, Children do not live in a vacuum. They return to their parents, grown-ups who may become seriously ill, and then come into contact with other family members. And the governor said the same. The priority is education. It’s not that sports cares about your interest in cross-country like you mentioned your daughter, where cross-country athletes aren’t about cross-country athletes. It’s about Spectators and piano. Ballet has said they are ready to go on without Spectators. All right, I should postpone Ph.D. doing it. I mean, at least when my daughter ran, there were times when, uh … I made a suggestion and again, it was the suggestion. I’d say that to my wife, the two of us if we make a decision about our daughter, and I think that’s how we should think about his Pennsylvanians.
