As the number of new cases climbs and we continue to move through the holiday season, it’s likely that more people will find themselves in this situation,” said Schuyler.“If you are aware that you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, take action immediately. Do not wait for a call from the Health Department. Quarantine at home, even if you do not feel sick,” she furthered. She says the virus can take up to two weeks after you are infected to make you feel sick.“We also know that you can be infected but never feel sick at all,” furthered Schuyler. “In those cases, you could still spread the virus through close contact with others.”She says it is critical to quarantine if you:Have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of someone who has COVID-19 for 10 minutes or longer;Have cared for someone who is sick with COVID-19;Have had direct physical contact with someone who has COVID-19. (This includes hugging or kissing them, sharing cups or silverware, or getting their respiratory droplets on you in another way — like getting coughed on);Are visiting a state with quarantine requirements.When you are quarantining, Schuyler says watch for a fever, cough, shortness of breath or other COVID-19 symptoms.If you develop symptoms, she says reach out to a healthcare provider who can help you determine next steps for getting testing or care.Additionally, the Health Department announced several new COVID-19 rapid testing events.The first round of testing will take place on Tuesday, December 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Murphy Training Center on Brigham Road in Dunkirk.The next will take place on Thursday, December 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Taylor Training Center on Harrison Street in Jamestown.Additional testing will happen on Tuesday, December 15 and Thursday, December 17, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Murphy Training Center and Taylor Training Center, respectively.Those interested in getting tested will need to register for an appointment online.The county previously recorded 90 new cases of the virus on Friday afternoon.last_img read more

Pregame Q&A with the Daily UW

first_imgJunior quarterback Jacob Eason has made a strong first impression after transferring from Georgia. (Photo courtesy of Conor Courtney / The Daily of the University of Washington) DT: How much do you think it matters that Washington decisively defeated BYU 45-19 while USC lost to the Cougars in overtime? JK: I think it’ll make a much bigger difference for Fink just because he’s the one that’s going to have to deal with the noise at Husky Stadium. This is Eason’s offense to run, and there haven’t really been any growing pains for Washington. He came in with experience playing in the SEC, and he’s got games at home and on the road under his belt this season. I haven’t seen any reason to believe he’s not completely comfortable with the offense and the environment here.  Kirshenbaum: This secondary is pretty young and new, but so far this season it has stepped up to every challenge presented. Despite so much turnover from last season — with three starters drafted and a fourth graduated — I’d say the strength of the group is its depth. Putting six defensive backs on the field has become almost the new normal for [defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach] Jimmy Lake; Washington did it pretty much all game against Hawaii’s run-and-shoot offense, and I could see something similar happening Saturday. I wouldn’t be surprised to see something similar to Washington’s performance against BYU last weekend, where the Cougars had a few shots connect downfield but also had a lot of trouble getting anything done once the field shortened. JK: To start with an easy one, it’s probably junior tailback Salvon Ahmed, just on the basis that he missed the BYU game with a lingering leg injury, and if he’s back, the UW offense goes to a whole new level. Beyond injury developments, I’d say it’s junior tight end Hunter Bryant. He’s probably the most physically gifted option in the UW passing game, and through four weeks he’s quickly become Eason’s go-to option, especially on third downs. Through four games, he’s leading the Huskies with 285 receiving yards, and he’s going to present a matchup problem for pretty much anyone USC puts on him. DT: What is your score prediction and why? DT: With junior quarterback Jacob Eason as well as a talented group of running backs, Washington appears to have a good offensive balance. Do you think the Huskies will rely more heavily on the pass or the run against USC? DT: Eason and USC redshirt junior quarterback Matt Fink are both fairly new to the starting role. How do you think this will factor into their performance in this high-profile matchup?center_img JK: This one’s tough to predict, just because I think so much of the outcome is going to be determined by what happens in the first 10 minutes or so. I’ve thought Washington was going to be in close games each of the past two weeks, and then the Huskies have dominated the first quarter en route to blowouts. I could definitely see this game getting out of hand early. Then again, I could also see USC keeping it close and staying within punching distance into the fourth quarter. I think the second option is a little more likely, but Washington ends up with just enough of a run to emerge with a 33-23 win. After upsetting then-No. 10 Utah last Friday, the No. 21 Trojans face another tough opponent Saturday in No. 17 Washington. The Daily Trojan spoke with the Daily UW managing editor Josh Kirshenbaum to get his insight on the upcoming game. JK: I think the main difference between those two games is how they started. Washington opened last weekend with a 21-point haymaker in the first quarter, while USC found itself in a close game early. Slow starts have been a problem for Washington in recent years, and when opponents can slow down and shorten games and keep it close into the second half, upsets tend to happen (see: Cal in the last two meetings). The fact that the Huskies are getting out to such fast starts, especially on offense, has been one of the most promising developments of this year’s team. That was the difference last weekend, and if Washington can do it this Saturday, it could be again this game. Daily Trojan: USC’s wide receivers dominated a supposedly strong Utah defense last weekend. How do you think Washington’s secondary will match up with USC’s talented receiving corps? DT: Which player do you think will be the biggest X factor for Washington in Saturday’s game? JK: UW’s offense has generally skewed run-heavy, but this iteration may be the most balanced I’ve seen in awhile, or at least since 2016. Last weekend, Washington ran 39 run plays and 28 pass plays, and I’d guess that’s about the balance [head coach] Chris Petersen wants. The key to that on Saturday is going to be getting good yardage on first down. Washington, more than any team I’ve watched, suffers when it’s forced into obvious passing situations. As long as it can stay more balanced, I think the UW offense can have another good game.last_img read more

NBA trade rumors: Heat might be stuck with Dion Waiters

first_imgThat stance hasn’t changed, as the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson reported this week the Heat can’t find a “palatable trade scenario” for Waiters. The 27-year-old isn’t a high-value asset considering he hasn’t played more than 46 games in any of  last three seasons with the Heat and the fact that he is due nearly $25 million through 2021.Waiters, who has averaged 14.0 points and 3.6 assists as a member of the Heat, found himself behind two-way player Chris Silva and Miami lifer Udonis Haslem ahead of the team’s game against the Nuggets on Tuesday. Considering the Heat are off to a 5-2 start with a number of intriguing options at guard — Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic, Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn, Justise Winslow — president Pat Riley and coach Erik Spoelstra might be hesitant to bring Waiters back into the fold and risk ruining chemistry.The Heat could ultimately decide it is better to play Waiters to increase his trade value, but it would not be surprising to see Waiters stuck on his own little island as the Heat continue to climb the Eastern Conference standings. Any takers out there for a veteran shooting guard in exile? Anyone?Dion Waiters has yet to suit up for the Heat through seven games. He was suspended for the season opener because of a “number of unacceptable incidents,” but he has remained inactive following the punishment. It’s possible this relationship has reached the point of no return, so is it time for Miami to execute a trade? NBA MOCK DRAFT 2020: Knicks pick star guard at No. 1One problem here — there is no interest in Waiters.”[The Heat have] been trying to trade him since last Christmas,” one NBA general manager told Sean Deveney of Heavy.com prior to the start of the 2019-20 regular season. “No one was trying to take him on then. After this kind of thing, it would be really hard to take him on now. He has had this kind of junk attached to him just about his whole career.”last_img read more

VVS Laxman launches cover of autobiography ‘281 and Beyond’

first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 3 (PTI) Veteran cricketer VVS Laxman has launched the cover of his much-awaited autobiography, “281 and Beyond” via Facebook livestream in association with Star Sports. The tell-all book, which will hit the stands on November 19, is co-written by sports journalist R Kaushik. Claiming to be a “candid, reflective, and deeply insightful”, the autobiography, as per Laxman, was in his mind since he retired from the international cricket. The book tells a “unique yet normal” story of a sportsperson of the country, he said during the cover launch yesterday.The title of the book has been borrowed from the “Hyderabad stylist’s” fabulous series-turning innings of 281 against Australia at the Eden Gardens in 2001. “The turning point in my life was the 281 knock. In the book, I have spoken about what led me to play the match and how I was able to get fit in time for the match… my batting with Rahul Dravid on the 4th day, how we built that partnership and more.”I think that Test series taught us a lot. It gave us a progressive and aggressive mindset that we can do well against anyone in the world,” the cricketer added.The book, according to the publishers – Westland, would give a peep into Indian cricket’s “dressing-room meltdowns”, Laxman’s “nuances of batting in different formats and on various pitches”, and then of course, his “learnings with coach John Wright” and the “rocky times under Greg Chappell”, among many other things. Laxman, who announced his retirement from international cricket in 2012, played 134 Tests, amassing 8,781 runs at an average of 45.97. He scored 17 centuries and 56 half centuries.advertisementHe also played in 86 ODIs for an aggregate of 2338 and average of 30.76 in the shorter format.The autobiography will be launched as part of the publishing house’s new imprint, Westland Sport.
