Last fall, college sports continued despite positive COVID-19 tests, but high school sports are being cancelled without question.
Follow the money: College sports bring in revenue for the state when high school sports do not. A Lake Oswego high school is learning this firsthand as football practice was cancelled due to COVID-19. Interestingly, one Oregon university was able to play a game last fall by blaming “false positives” for testing results.
Not everyone can use the “false positive” scapegoat and get away with it unless money for the state is involved.
The PCR tests that are being used to verify positive COVID-19 cases are have a 89-94% chance of a false-positive. Even the CDC says on Page 38 of this July 2020 report says: The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection. Not everyone can use the “false positive” scapegoat and get away with it. Is Governor Kate Brown prioritizing income for the state over student sports?
