    Oregon went to Defcon 1 early on and stayed there a long time.
    So did Louisiana, but New Orleans, along with Seattle and NYC got hit before anyone knew what was going on.

        • So slightly more related to the actual Olympic Trials. Shouldn't online entries have started by now?

          • Neighboring Washington state is adopting new policies, if Oregon would follow these, it would be a game changer for spectators at the Trials. https://www.king5.com/mobile/article...f-859fe65e8aec

            Physical distancing won't be required in vaccinated-only sections. People seated in those sections may be seated directly next to other groups. Vaccinated spectators are still required to wear face masks unless actively eating or drinking.

            Children between two and fifteen years old may present a negative COVID-19 test result that was taken within 72 hours of admission. Children under the age of 2 need to be accompanied by a vaccinated adult.

            Vaccinated spectators must enter facilities in a separate line from un-vaccinated ticket holders, according to the guidelines.

            Outdoor facilities may add vaccinated sections until their total capacity is at 50%, or 22,000 people, whichever is lower. Outdoor unvaccinated spectators cannot exceed 9,000 people, according to the guidelines.

              How about pandemic news that directly affects the number of ticket that may be available for the OTs? In this case a lot of virus protocol non-compliance is driving up covid rates while reducing/eliminating tickets.

              UO students, local business party on, ignoring rules on risk levels this weekend

              Apathy, frustration and resistance to state-imposed limitations on gatherings and businesses have come at a time when the state is working to contain surges. Much of the nation began to see a reprieve in the virus’ spread in April, but Oregon reported surges week after week.

              . . .


              While Lane County remained in "high risk" early last week, the plan was to fill Autzen Stadium to 15% capacity with fans for Saturday's spring football game. With the jump to "extreme risk" on Friday, these plans changed and no fans were allowed.

              • There's a definitive universal level of stupidity/lack of empathy and whatever other terms one wishes to use which seems to know no boundaries amongst the college students and young adults in general across this great nation.

                  That has been the case throughout the millennia . . .

                    Very doubtful....Lane County is going to be on Defcon 1 for at least 3 weeks.... and the meet is next month. Tickets are being refunded now. They were planning some new ticket scheme this month but that is out the window. I have no idea what they could plan now as far as tickets go.

                      So, is Lane County (as well as all the other 15 counties) going back to the level below "extreme" I guess.

                        Lane County is going down. But as far as Hayward goes it isn't much.

                          • Yesterday's Register Guard had a front page photo of over 100 students partying behind an apartment building maskless. This "county" pandemic can be placed in the square mile surrounding the U of O campus. Most of the students will be gone by June 11. I do hope Governor Brown takes this into consideration when determining access to the Trials.

                            • I certainly wouldn't make any travel plans....or at least don't buy a nonrefundable ticket.

                              I'm not expecting to get in...except perhaps as a volunteer.
