© Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports is reporting that two Arkansas football staff members and one player have tested positive for covid-19 resulting in others to quarantine due to contact tracing.

Saturday's game between LSU and Arkansas is unaffected by this spread, according to Razorbacks AD Hunter Yurachek.

Two staff members, who are not on-field coaches, and at least one player received a positive result from coronavirus testing conducted on Sunday, the Democrat-Gazette has learned. The resulting contact tracing has led to quarantining for a number of personnel, both players and staff.

However, Arkansas Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek said Tuesday afternoon the Razorbacks’ roster numbers at this point are in good shape as it pertains to the mandatory levels required by the SEC medical guidance task force to play a game. The Razorbacks (3-4) are scheduled to host LSU at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

“We have been dealing with positive tests and quarantining among all of our sports since our student-athletes returned back in June,” Yurachek told the Democrat-Gazette. “We will continue to deal with that. We’re dealing with it now. But it’s not impacting our ability to play games right now.

“As we sit here today with the testing results that I know from Sunday, we’re in great shape to play football on Saturday.”

Average age of death “with” COVID is 79...average age of death without Covid is also 79...maybe that’s why a lot of people aren’t taking it that seriously.

I think it’s more the mixed messaging and hypocrisy of politicians who tell us it’s a dire situation but still go to private dinners. Or Joe Biden celebration rallies. The virus is smart enough to avoid those.
