Will Broward County schools require masks?

The Broward County School Board voted Wednesday to continue its mandatory mask requirement for students, staff and visitors at all schools and district facilities. Masks will not be required when outdoors and all social distancing guidelines remain in place. The move comes as the number of Florida COVID-19 cases surge.

Atlanta reunites with their former outfielder, who will bring some much-needed power to left field.

Duvall, 33 next month, continues to hit for power as he did during his tenure in Atlanta from 2018-2020, batting .229/.277/.478 with a 104 wRC+, 22 home runs, 68 RBI and 1.1 WAR with his usual steady defense. It is worth noting Duvall’s numbers drop off drastically against opponents other than the Braves; his wRC+ is only 78 against non-Atlanta teams in 2021.

It remains unclear exactly how the outfield will shake out with the additions of Duvall and Rosario (who is currently on the injured list), but it would seem likely Duvall will find himself in left field more times than not.

Duvall has a mutual option on his contract for 2022. The Braves can either pay him $7M in salary or pay his $3M buyout. Essentially, they will have to decide if they want Duvall for $4M next year. He is owed approximately $500K the rest of 2021.

Alex Jackson was hitting well with Triple-A Gwinnett, but he is yet to find his footing at the big league level with a career .070 batting average across 50 plate appearances. Here’s hoping the 25-year-old backstop can figure a few things out in Miami.

Culver superintendent joins pushback over state's mask requirement in schools - KTVZ

CBS Denver 30 July, 2021 - 09:25pm

CULVER, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Culver school superintendent told parents and the community Friday that the district will challenge the state's order that students and staff wear masks when classes resume this fall.

Here's her full letter posted on their website:

Culver School District was extremely disappointed to learn yesterday that Governor Kate Brown mandated masks for public schools for the upcoming school year. We believe it is our District’s role to consider the full impact on safety, learning, and social development that masks have on children.

At our school board meeting last night we confirmed the following:

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has recommended masks for all teachers, staff, students and visitors inside of schools, regardless of vaccination status.

On Thursday, Gov. Kate Brown announced that the state of Oregon will require students and staff in K-12 schools to wear masks indoors this fall.

In a statement from the Oregon Department of Education, officials say they are working to create a rule requiring face coverings in all indoor school settings — both public and private — for all individuals 2 and older. This includes students, staff, contractors, volunteers and visitors.

The rule will include provisions for eating, drinking, playing a musical instrument that requires using the mouth and certain sports — including swimming, gymnastics and wrestling.

Officials say the rule will take effect upon adoption, but the exact date is unclear.

But as masks are reimplemented in some places, Oregon health officials warned Friday the predicted daily COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations in August show a sharp increase.

Based on the Oregon Health Authority’s newest COVID-19 modeling, at the current level of transmission, over the next two weeks daily cases would continue to rapidly increase to an estimated 1,170 cases and 95 new hospitalizations per day. The average amount of cases per day last week was 443 and an average of about 21 new daily hospitalizations, based on data from the health authority.

“I’m extremely concerned about the situation right now, but extremely grateful that we have other tools in this fight that we didn’t have six month ago,” said Dr. Dean Sidelinger, the state epidemiologist and health officer. “The vaccines that we currently have available to us in Oregon and across the United States are highly effective at preventing hospitalizations and death from COVID-19 – but that depends on people being vaccinated.”

Currently, about 29% of adults in Oregon remain unvaccinated. Last month, the health authority reported that 92% of coronavirus cases in June and 94% of coronavirus deaths occurred in unvaccinated Oregonians.

“We know that people would like to move on from COVID-19 – but unfortunately it is here and it is a much more formidable foe right now than it has been for the last year and a half,” Sidelinger said. “But the tools that we have are also more formidable, so let's use them.”

The impacts of the virus on unvaccinated people are apparent when looking at high-infection rates in counties with low-vaccination rates.

Last week, in rural Umatilla County where 43% of adults are partially or fully vaccinated, the areas coronavirus-test positivity rate surpassed 14%. On Friday health officials reported that the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest, which was held in Umatilla County on July 10, was the site of an outbreak — so far, 58 people who attended the event have tested positive for COVID-19.

Well done!!!!! Leadership that is calling out fake science. Culver’s covid numbers are so small this shouldn’t even be a question. I’m fact all of central Oregon should be doing the same thing. Shame on Bend/Lapine for caving on crap science.

Seriously, proofread for once. Credibility will never come, but you won’t sound like an imbecile.

Wow! You sure ruffle a lot of feathers on this forum and the hatred toward you is very apparent. You know your over the target when your taking incoming fire. Keep up the great posts as you seem to follow the science.

Wow. Blue masks are discrimination? I forgot I was suppose to be ashamed of wearing them for months. I guess Culver has school uniforms to make sure there is no class distinction based on clothing?

Good thing educators like Ms. Garber are fighting the “good” fight for our kids. Maybe they should focus on teaching.. And enroll is some remedial science classes they obviously need.

I know, suddenly public schools are supposed to take childrens’ economic status and feelings into account when the whole country has watched over 600,000 people die in a year and change?

What a farce. Do you even know what that picture is from?

People that demand others wear a face diaper might just be faceaphobic.

I don’t really care about Culver, or children, or any of it… but the part about blue masks and discrimination was pretty stupid. #predictable

If you all do some leg work it says the cdc recommends that in high outbreak places that schools should wear mask. We are not high outbreak area. Comrade brown should shove that mask mandate in her mouth. Also, Biden said in back in May if you have fully chipped, haha, vaccinated you would never wear a mask again for covid reasons, now he flip flop. Ugh.

This mandate will kill more people then the virus. People are mentally fatigued that opens up to depression and suicide rates climb. Business are currently struggling to stay open, since no one wants to wear a mask all day and get free money from the government. Open your eyes people.

This all about control of the up and coming 2022 election cycle… if they can keep the Wuhan China virus fear porn alive it will allow to keep all special voting rules in place that we saw in the 2020 election.. mail in ballots, ballot harvesting, not requiring signatures for mail in ballots in some states, no having to prove who you are to vote. That is just a few examples that come to mind and the list is a miles long. A lot of states are tightening up the voter laws and the Dems of course play the race card.

Good! The unvaccinated morons need to live with their choices. I am DONE paying for their idiocy. Let Darwin sort it out.

Kate is a sheep and you are her flock for voting for this goofy person.
