What if football camp was opened 7/05? 2 wk quarantine first, temp checked

each day and initially social distancing during personal conditioning drills. Get the housing worked out (either singles or some kind of divider in the rooms. Lots of chlorine and other disinfectants. Create a process for quarantine if someone gets sick.

Student athletes take online classes and work on study skills as well as football skills. Run the plays without the ball, then review lots of film with coaches giving feedback to players. Everyone wears gloves. Don't touch your face while on the field or sidelines. Add the ball later. Lots of tackling dummy drills. Consider after practice that everything is contaminated and must be cleaned. (Upside is in S.Korea, they found the amount of flu cases had gone down significantly due to Covid19 precautions.)

Also, lots of questions could be answered:
1/ Should every player have a plastic mask under their helmet? Would that even work?
2/ Should UVa open up for the Fall semester? If the team can't stay safe, then send everyone home and lock it down.
3/ How does the coaches and team do social distancing on the sidelines and in the booth above?
4/ Should Zoom or other meeting media apps be used to coach the players?

Note, the real problem is that if the sports teams have to wait until the campus opens, then none of the athletes will be prepared to practice, let alone compete in any games without an extensive delay in setting up safe areas for training and conditioning.

Traveling will also be a major logistics problem for coaches, players, and their gear while also keeping everyone as safe as possible.
