Individual Team Member has a Covid19 Positive Test Result
If a player tests positive for Covid19 while participating in an SSUSA tournament, that player would withdraw from further participation. Is his team also required to withdraw from the tournament?
For sake of this discussion, let us assume that the other team members immediately went to get tested and the results were all negative for the remaining players.

Somehow it seems like some essential information may have been left out of this hypothetical ... If this is simply a theory question, then let's say in theory the team should withdraw immediately from the event ... If this isn't a theory question, but rather a (partial?) factual account, please call the Sacramento Office on Tuesday and ask to speak with either Terry or Fran ... Thanks!

Shows the insanity of this and lack of knowledge.

The test is NOT a COVID-19 test (which is the disease).

The test shows the presence of the virus SARS-CoV-2. Dependent on how many Cycle threshold are used, technically you could pick up anything on anyone.


The test is fantastic and NOT flawed, it's use is and it was not ever intended as a diagnostic tool to determine a disease.

The WHO admitted in January of this year:

"WHO reminds IVD users that disease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases (2). This means that the probability that a person who has a positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) is truly infected with SARS-CoV-2 decreases as prevalence decreases, irrespective of the claimed specificity." https://www.who.int/news/item/20-01-2021-who-information-notice-for-ivd-users-2020-05

In other words a positive test result does NOT mean a person is infected, is sick, will be sick or is infectious in any way.

People have to investigate and understand what the test is and not take what they have been told.IF a person tests positive, it is important that a Doctor diagnose them as infected before ANY panic.

In fact if the CT is above 26 or so, the probability is the person is no risk and will never be sick.(In the USA we use 40 CT which is almost 1 trillion time what is in your body)

Thanks, jfsully, that's certainly interesting information ... However, it's totally non-responsive to the question SeniorMan asked, so we're going to stay with the suggestion we made previously in asking him to contact the Sacramento Home Office on Tuesday ...
