After updated and lengthened Phase 2 restrictions in North Carolina due to COVID, the call has been made to move the second race of the Downhill Southeast series, scheduled for July 11-12th a couple hours west to Windrock Bike Park in Tennessee. The race will be run on two new courses. Participants are all asked to have a face mask.
Much of the pro field from the East coast of the US will be racing and Pinkbike will be providing race coverage all weekend.
|The second race in our series scheduled for Beech Mountain, July 11-12th will be moved to Windrock Bike Park due to updated restrictions in NC. Windrock will have two new racecourses and is allowing us to operate the race under the TN state guidelines. We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding. Our goal is to put on a great bike race while following all local rules and guidelines.—Neko Mulally|
Over 4000 people got furloughed that includes many docs.
There’s a spike in confirmed cases NOT hospitalizations! There is a huge line of cars that forms each day at the main hospital just to get tested. (Drive by test). Most are asymptotic, they just want the test.
The ER docs are testing everyone. Man falls and hurts his arm...covid test.
IF this is as virulent as they say...who knows...CDC and the WHO can’t seem to give straight answers, then everyone will get it. It’s inevitable. Mask..no mask...you will get it. Just depends how the virus effects your body...or how your body responds to the infection.
These patients were so scared to seek medical care that there are some with permanent damage. We are seeing a surge of these pts. That is what is truly sad.
Covid unit....bed size? We had a covid dedicated hospital that at its peak had 20 pts. That hospital due to no pts shut down till recently.
I was hoping everyone was afraid to come out and I’d have the place to myself...mostly.
I was wrong. Lol! Plus it was opening day.
That’s great for Thursday’s!! I didn’t know the place was open then. Definitely be hitting that up
And I just figured out the gap.....for riders coming through. Apparently I’m alittle dense..... geez...little slow on the uptake I guess.
Nc currently is one of the fastest growing Covid-19 hot spots, and if everyone would have just chilled out and stayed home when they went to phase 1 we might be racing. But people didn’t , and we are not.
Yes, Covid is a sickness, but I'm not jumping every time they tell me to.
In short, you don't have to jump, but put on a darn mask please.
Also, pretty sure the President is more concerned about his TV ratings than even the worst news programs... Who, in your dilluded worldview, is supplying the news' "talking points?" George Soros, Bill Gates? Have another swig of that conspiracy theory kool-aide bro, and then try a little project management and see how easy it is to coordinate people working together, let alone on a global scale. Or keep your tinfoil hat on, your call, just PUT ON THE DAMN MASK.
Ur ???? right on the money bro !!!
Sorry, but photographers didn't take pictuers of BLM protesters wearing masks in the outdoors and pictures of Trump supporters not wearing masks indoors because of bias-- that is just what REALITY was. You can't get around facts by inventing "alternative facts" -- like make up the idea that voter fraud is widespread and that's why you lost the popular vote or your inaugeration crowd was the biggliest ever and claim that it's "fake news" when it actually wasn't. It's not "liberal media" if the president actually calls it "kung flu" and suggests we shouldn't test more because it makes us look bad - that's ACTUALLY what he said and it's ACTUALLY stupid and offensive.
So again, please, JUST WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC. It's not a liberal plot to make Trump look bad, I'm just trying to stop you from spreading a dangerous illness.
