Five cases of Covid-19 in Strasbourg

Returning from a training course in Evian in the middle of the week, the Racing Club de Strasbourg announced on Friday that weekly tests had revealed five positive cases for Covid-19 within the professional workforce. The affected players were isolated and placed in fourteen.

The Royal Oak Tennis Club in Hudson closed on Wednesday after learning of a COVID-19 case among at least one of its members — the latest athletic facility in the Montreal area to have to shut down amid a resurgence in the pandemic.

Although club president Arlene Kingsland cited a single case in an email to members, a well-placed source told the Montreal Gazette that two juniors were infected. The preteens enrolled in the recreational program attended a tennis clinic on Saturday mornings — a group lesson involving many children on one or two courts lasting two hours.

Madrid Open tennis cancelled because of virus spike in Spain

  Madrid Open tennis cancelled because of virus spike in Spain MADRID — The Madrid Open in September was cancelled on Tuesday because of a new spike in coronavirus cases in Spain. The joint men's and women's tournament was originally scheduled in May, but moved when Spain became a hotbed for the virus. Its new slot in September allowed it again to be a major lead-in event for the rescheduled French Open at the end of that month. But organizers last weekend were advised by local authorities not to stage the tournament due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.

So far Australia has been one of the leading nations in the world in managing COVID - 19 and limiting the spread of infection. The connection between clubs , coaches, associations, players and staff from the various state and territory bodies and the national federation has been at its strongest.

Still, some analysts question whether Amazon's stock can keep climbing from its current ,000 level. Shares are up 25% since April 30, when Amazon warned that expenses for COVID - 19 testing and other safety and staffing measures could outpace surging revenue in the second quarter.

“Dear members, we have just received confirmation that we have a COVID case at the club and must therefore shut down operations immediately and until further notice,” Kingsland said in the email. “More information to follow.”

In the meantime, coaches and others are awaiting test results. Complicating matters is that children from other clubs have taken part in the Saturday clinics. Kingsland and four other staff of the Royal Oak were not immediately available for comment.

The long-established tennis club is the second local athletic facility to close in less than a week, raising concerns that the public health measures that Quebec put in place to allow amateur sports to continue in the pandemic have failed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Two Missouri hairstylists potentially exposed 140 clients to coronavirus when they worked for up to eight days this month while symptomatic, health officials said.

On Monday, the owner of the Hockey Montreal summer camp in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce told the Gazette he decided to close for the rest of the season after a 23-year-old coach and “three or four” teenagers tested positive for the coronavirus. Eric Rayment said he reacted initially in disbelief to the news of the infections, since he went well beyond what was required by the public health guidelines to keep his club safe.

The borough of Lachine has still not reopened three public pools and a water park after at least three lifeguards tested positive following an initiation party a couple of weeks ago. Meanwhile, La Tribune reported on Wednesday that five ball hockey players in Sherbrooke, aged 18 to 22, are infected.

Perhaps Quebecers now have a better idea as to why deputy premier Geneviève Guilbault held a news conference on Monday to warn that “we see a worrying spike in contagion among teens and young adults.”

In her remarks, Guilbault focused on large house parties in violation of the 10-person private residence  rule, urging young people not to share a beer or a hug. It’s true that house parties, like a massive one in the Montérégie on June 28, have caused outbreaks. (On Wednesday, the Quebec City health authority confirmed a 16-person outbreak was traced to two parties last weekend.)

But Quebec is now also witnessing clusters of cases in both indoor and outdoor sports like hockey, swimming and tennis. This does not portend well as Quebec has plans to allow indoor gatherings of up to 250 people for amateur sports as of Monday.

Neither Guilbault nor Health Minister Christian Dubé have publicly addressed the risks involved in group sports during the pandemic. The province’s announcement last Friday permitting the larger gatherings offered no new guidelines for indoor sports.

What Dubé has warned against is the proliferation of large house parties . In contrast, Dubé has played down the risks associated with keeping bars open despite outbreaks linked to them and scientific evidence that they are superspreading venues for the coronavirus.

On Monday, Dr. Richard Massé, a public health adviser to the government, spoke in an almost matter-of-fact manner about a disturbing outbreak that has infected at least 27 people connected to a day camp in Boucherville.

Despite all these outbreaks and the fact Quebec has posted daily cases well above a hundred for more than two weeks, the government has not backed down from its decision to increase the limit on public gatherings from 50 to 250 people. The closest Dubé has come to a concession of any kind is to hint he might make some “modifications” to outdoor gatherings.

A group of Montreal doctors is deeply worried about Quebec’s decision to reopen bars on June 25 and is against the larger gatherings. But the physicians don’t want to jeopardize their careers speaking out against Premier François Legault.

Perhaps the government is confident that making face coverings mandatory in public spaces on July 18 will be enough to counter the COVID-19 resurgence. But many people, especially younger Quebecers, are still not wearing masks or are letting their noses poke out of them.

Perhaps the government is confident because the numbers of deaths and hospitalizations have plummeted. But COVID-19 is still sending people to hospital, as Quebec observed 50 new hospitalizations in the past seven days.

Now is not the time for complacency. The multiple outbreaks among young people, the rising case numbers and even the new hospitalizations should give authorities pause, especially since schools will reopen in less than five weeks. Now is the time for more measures to truly counter the resurgence.
