COVID Protocol In China Should Have Been Known Earlier

from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail,

“We have concerns,” commissioner Gary Bettman said on Friday. “We’ve expressed those to the Players’ Association. We see that a number of players are now also expressing concerns, and we’ll have to see how this all plays out.”

Bold leadership.

According to reports, the coming iteration of the Olympic handbook lays out how long visitors to China could be looking at. If you catch the bug, there is the possibility you could be quarantined for as long as five weeks. Again, this shouldn’t be startling news to a multibillion-dollar organization sending a couple of hundred people to Beijing. It’s already standard operating procedure under Chinese law.

The Olympics begin on Feb. 4 and end on Feb. 20. What if you test positive on the 19th? Do your own math here.

For now, the players’ concerns aren’t that they’ll get thrown in a jazzed-up detention camp and cut off from the outside world (those are very much my concerns). They are more concerned they won’t be paid while they’re doing their bid.

Another concern, as voiced by PA boss Donald Fehr, is whether the players will have to do this theoretical quarantine in China. Fehr is seeking “certainty” on the matter.

Sorry? How did you imagine this going?

Cathal should maybe look to apply for Fredo’s job on CNN now that it’s vacant.

No other country has a 5 WEEK quarantine protocol. That’s absurd.

In the US, you’re given 10 days after first symptoms/positive test and then you can go back.

Also, it’s not “SOP under Chinese Law” the guy has no idea what he’s talking about in relation to China or Chinese Law.

This seems more like the CCP paid this clown to write a hit piece against the NHL “millionaires” as he calls them and to make them look bad for not wanting to kowtow to the CCP absurd mandates.

5 weeks quarantine is almost as absurd as NZ shutting down for 1 case.
