Feels like this isn't going away anytime soon. NBA has just suspended all games indefinitely.
They announced it during the Mavs-Nuggets game. They kept the game going and it was pretty surreal. Rudy Gobert, a player for the Jazz, tested positive for it, which was the impetus. Other players on the Jazz are apparently sick as well, but haven't been tested yet.Whoa. Had NOT heard this.
He certainly does not appear disappointed about having to do so.The linked CNN article said:The ban also does not apply to all of Europe but to nations in the Schengen zone. That includes Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
What this means: [only] Americans and US permanent residents who are in Europe will still be allowed to fly to Europe and be allowed back into the United States during this 30-day period. They will simply be screened upon entry to the United States and face quarantine or restrictions on their movement in the US for 14 days. However, it is not clear whether airlines will still fly the routes if passenger demand from European nationals dries up because of the ban.
Guess I won't be doing the Halforums Tour of the States this month. Awww.
I got sick friday, with what was surely a cold. I have been working from home ever since.Doctors around here have been ordered to write everyone home with any symptoms appearing to be in anyway nose, throat or ear related. Yes, that means everyone with a good cold has to stay at home for a minimum of 7 days.
