COVID-19 and the return of HS athletics

How do you think we get sports back in ND? I've seen a couple posts that they're worried about football next fall. I'll ask, why do you think basketball will be played next winter?

I think sports will resume next year. I'm not confident that they will resume in a full capacity with fans and the current setup but I do think we play a "full" sports slate next year. Start times, season lengths, etc might be impacted. I look at it like this, everything needs to head back to normal sometime. By August of next year we will be way closer to treatments, vaccines, and just increased knowledge about the virus. We also will have more of a herd immunity built up by then. November we have a national election. How would you postpone a presidential election!? I do not see it happening so we will need to be taking steps towards normality for the election to happen. I could be dead wrong, heaven knows these are times of constant change, but believe we will have football next fall.

I do not see how we will be back in school or sports right now without a vaccine. Everyone is terrified of this thing and the media isn't helping. These numbers the IHME are coming up with for ND aren't even close to correct and they are updating them with incorrect information. I think there are only two ways the school open on time and we have sports next year. 1. There is a vaccine 2. We believe the peak of the virus has hit and we believe a return to normalcy is more important than hiding from this virus anymore.

Personally I do not see us back to school or sports until there is a vaccine. Which might be an entire year from right now. I hope for a different outcome but I just don't see it with the absolute fear ppl have of this thing.
