Coronavirus
« on: March 13, 2020, 11:19:28 AM »
Has any leagues been cancelled that some of you bowl in due to the Coronavirus ? A tournament I was going to bowl in pulled the plug. I'm in Ohio where mass gatherings of 100 or more are prohibited. Things are changing daily so it could be an adjustment after the 2 p.m. press conference.

To put the "COVID is a hoax", political bollocks to bed, instead of trying to post armchair facts and data and claim that we should be listening to one person and not everyone else, let's rather get that info from someone on the front lines that we can definitely trust.

Everyone seems to forget that Erin McCarthy has a day job, and that is being a nurse at two different hospitals here in Omaha: the University of Nebraska Medical Center (the same one that took in the first COVID patients as well as the first Ebola patients) and Methodist Hospital. She took the time off to talk to Emil Williams and Aaron Smith about it and quite bluntly what everyone needs to be doing as she's putting her life on the line out there with this. If anything, I'd listen to her before anyone on any cable news channel, let alone the POTUS.

As this is at BowlTV, it may require your USBC login to get to the podcast, but the podcast is free.

When I heard this weeks ago, it was a conversation I had with someone that knows Erin that said this is/was very serious. But like you said, there were a lot of arm-chair quarterbacks scoffing at it. Yet, here we are.

I saw it early, but in a different way. I underwrite commercial insurance and the amount of businesses trying to increase Business Income coverage WELL before this thing got out was staggering.

Will business interruption insurance cover losses from the pandemic? The premiums must be astronomical.

Depends on the risk/policy, lost business income typically doesn’t cover pandemics. Just a reminder to read your policy.

Listen, I'm the biggest tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist you'll ever meet. (Ask me about how I feel about Google Assistant, Siri and Alexa over a beer once this is all over) but this isn't a hoax. Might the media be spinning this out of control? Maybe, but that's nothing new. Might the government be testing how far we'll go, making it easy to justify self quarantining and then being able to justify Marshall Law? Maybe.

But the illness and threat is real. Please don't mistake that.

Here is an example of the real danger when we have a lot of shit-for-brains nutjobs spreading their own version of the truth(not mentioning any specific names here).

I'm about 4 hours from Vegas.  Was BSing with my co-workers this morning and they are also my bowling teammates.  I say, "If Vegas opened up this weekend would you guys be willing to go on a road trip just to bowl for a few hours for fun?  No tournaments, no leagues, just fun."  Roll a for a few hours and then drive right back.

We were all in.

It isn't opening up for a while.

I mean, you know it's bad when Mayor Goodman is allowing alcohol delivery instead of you going out for fun. It's even worse when McCarran closes of their 5 terminals, checkpoints to those terminals, and 2 parking lots, and 2 of their 4 runways.

3 employees at the Costco in Henderson tested positive for it, along with one of the members of the Southern Nevada Health District, and a LEO for the NLVPD. Combined with the already known cases we have, and seeing how that should be small compared to the now 7.5 million people here, it's going around down here much faster than everyone realizes. The hotels jumped the gun badly in starting sales for hotel bookings the day after Sisolak's 30-day shutdown ends, especially as he just called up the Nevada National Guard.

Thanks for the info.  Like most of us on here, we are really in need of our bowling fix.  If this stuff turns all walking dead or zombieland I'm headed up to Beverly Hills to occupy one of those mansions with a bowling alley in the basement.
