That is based off of old guidance.  Before that it was 30 minutes.  Now the amount of time is not listed as a limit.

Source: Weekly conference calls with CDC leadership.

They also originally said everyone should quarantine for 14 days, now they are saying if you came in close contact you should quarantine for three days and then get tested.  If negative you are safe.

Thanks Nate.  That would explain some things.  I wasn’t trying to come across like an asshole, but I knew I had read something and felt like there was a bunch of over reaction to all of this.

Once again, not a hill I am willing to die on, but I just think there are very minimal risk from team to team.  

You are correct that outdoor transmission is extremely rare, which is why the protests didn't lead to massive outbreaks.  However it only takes one person, and since they all end up in a locker room at some point, the risk is higher, and since they are travelling they are coming in contact with a lot more people than the average person.  It isn't just about their safety but the safety of the people they come in contact with.

Yep, as I was looking up information the most recent information online I found (granted I didn’t look for too long) was from June 20th still stating that 6 feet at plus or minus 15 minutes is what is considered close contact.  I would probably limit the use of clubhouse attendants due to exposure.  They can all come in after the team leaves.  They can wear gloves and masks and clean and disinfect the entire clubhouse and it really isn’t going to take very long.  Maybe a couple of hours to disinfect an entire clubhouse.  But like you said the fact that it doesn’t really live on surfaces that long it is mostly to make people feel better or safer.

So I should tell him that the risk of giving it from one team to another is minimal?  Ok, seems kinda mean.

Survival of the fittest methinks. COVID is taking out the weakest of teams—I’m not surprised the Marlins are the first to bear the brunt of this.

It's likely the Marlins brought this with them. The reality is SE Florida is currently the national epicenter of the virus. Miami-Dade/Broward/Palm Beach counties reported 4,700+ cases yesterday alone. Players are being tested twice a week.

That's the first place Marlins you are talking about!
