A couple theories, but nothing we can really say definitively. We are shocked.

Damn. You should probably get as many people as possible that's been near the family member tested now.

Saw that another NBA player tested positive. Played against the Jazz last week. The bad part of this is that he is not showing any symptoms of having the virus. Kind of shows that there are plenty of people with the virus who don't know it and might not ever know.

It will be discussed shortly when state contacts us.

Just found out a second person I know is undergoing testing for it. He is 92.

Default Yet another good reason not to living in Massachusetts

Yet another good reason not to be living in Massachusetts


Massachusetts as i post has the 3rd or 4st largest number of coronaviruses in the country and Mass people are still going out in large crowds.

Personally, I think it is obvious that this virus has been here a lot longer than they were saying. Almost everyone I know had something in late December / early January and it was very similar to this. Now, a lot of people they test have it and they don't know the exposure. That tells me that exposure is common and it is just a matter of the test confirming it. They say we have 130 cases and in theory that should be too small to have such a continuing outbreak. My guess 25% of the population already has it.
