Jefferson County Public Schools may suspend athletics due to COVID

With coronavirus cases on the rise across Kentucky, the state’s largest school system is considering putting sports on pause. According to WDRB, Jefferson County Public Schools will decide on Thursday whether or not to suspend athletics due to the high number of cases in Louisville. The decision would only impact games for next week, so this Friday’s football games would still go on as scheduled.

Per the latest numbers from the Louisville Public Health and Wellness Department, Louisville is a coronavirus “red zone,” with an average of 28.9 cases per 100,000 people. In September, JCPS said it would halt sports if numbers reached that stage. Last week, there were 1,552 total confirmed cases in Louisville, with eight deaths.

    The assumption is that instead of being at practice or at a game, kids will be at home with their parents and not leave the house, thereby making it safer? This is silly.

    So sports may be cancelled because cases in Jefferson County overall, not in the schools, not on high school teams, are rising? Makes sense by 2020 Logic.

    You think maybe JCPS is listening to doctors and other experts and not the posters here for advice?

      Did you know, that all are certified medical professionals. They know way more than anyone else.

    This probably has no effect on Trinity, whose next game is against Bowling Green….. just Jefferson County.

    Please let the kids continue to play. Don’t let the China virus control us.

    Yeah stop sports for an age group that doesn’t hardly get the virus. The so called adults making decisions are showing their lack of knowing the scientific data.
