Three COVID-positive players tee off together at PGA event

first_imgTopics : Three players who continue to test positive for COVID-19 teed off together in Thursday’s opening round of the US PGA Workday Charity Open under “clarified” rules for symptomatic participation.South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli and Americans Denny McCarthy and Nick Watney began with pars at the 10th hole at Muirfield Village in their morning start after having limited access to facilities at the Ohio, layout.The PGA Tour protocol guidelines involve players and caddies who meet the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) “Return to Work” guidelines after consultation with infectious disease experts and PGA medical advisor Dr. Tom Hospel. A 10-day isolation was required for those testing positive but under July 1 revisions, an infected player or caddie can return if there are no symptoms displayed once two negative tests are taken at least 24 hours apart.The CDC and experts say tests used by the tour show the possibility of detecting virus even after infectious aspect of it is gone and a person is no longer contagious.The PGA decided players and caddies who meet that criteria will be grouped together or play alone and have no access to indoor facilities “out of an abundance of caution.””They have complied with the guidance from the CDC, they have met the medical requirements for isolation, and with respect to the opinions of our medical advisors, including infectious disease experts and the CDC, they’re clear to play,” PGA Tour vice president for administration Andy Levinson said.center_img Those allow condition returns to competition for players and caddies who continue to test positive for coronavirus if at least 10 days have passed since the symptoms first appeared and 72 hours have passed since fever has disappeared and issues such as cough and shortness of breath have improved.”In the beginning stages of the illness, that virus is assumed to be active virus that can cause infection, can be contagious,” Hospel said.”As time passes and as symptoms resolve (the) theory is that this virus, this particle that has being detected… is no longer active or contagious.”What we’ve learned along the way is that in some instances, individuals can continue to test positive for weeks if not months beyond when their illness started, and the thought is that those individuals are no longer contagious.”last_img read more

Flood suburbs leaving rest of Brisbane in their wake now

Top regions for affordable property Rental market tightens in Brisbane Brisbane’s most crowded suburbs Mr Peleg said the financial risk was now considered to be lower than before the 2011 floods.“That’s why we have insurance companies. And while they have revised their product offerings and premiums, which no doubt will be quite high, it is still possible to get insurance.”While Fig Tree Pocket reigned supreme (52.7 per cent), price growth was solid in 18 other suburbs including Bulimba (44.7 per cent), Yeronga (42.4 per cent), New Farm (40.5 per cent), Tennyson (40 per cent), Indooroopilly (39.8 per cent) and Windsor (38.8 per cent). Houses in the suburb of Yeronga submerged by flood waters on January 13, 2011. House price growth in the area has bounced back to outperform the rest of Brisbane. Picture: Jonathan Wood/Getty Images.BRISBANE suburbs devastated by record floods in 2011 have sprung back to beat the rest of the housing market, with one growing at double Brisbane’s five-year average.New analysis has found that in 19 of the 20 suburbs affected by floods, house price growth was now outperforming the rest of the Brisbane market.RiskWise Property Research found 95 per cent of the suburbs affected have gone on to deliver strong double digit capital growth over five years, with the top suburb Fig Tree Pocket notching a massive 52.7 per cent, double that of Brisbane 26.7 five-year average.RiskWise CEO Doron Peleg said demand for properties in those suburbs far outweighed any concerns over flooding — especially given 2011 was considered “a once-in-a-50-year event”.“That makes these homes a risk people are willing to accept.” Police patrolling flooded Fig Tree Pocket streets in 2011. Picture: Jono Searle.Also notching capital growth in the thirties were Hamilton (35.7 per cent), Norman Park (34.8 per cent), Corinda (34.7 per cent), Auchenflower (31.5 per cent) and Wilston (31.3 per cent).Only one suburb of the 20 was running below Brisbane’s 26.7 per cent five-year average, with Pinkenba sitting just half that pace on 11.8 per cent.Mr Peleg said the results defied post-2011 flood perceptions that the areas would see very poor capital growth and negative buyer reaction.“Our research has shown the reality is completely different and the demand for them has eclipsed the negative perception. This is because these high-flood areas are truly well located on the river which is in high demand.”He said some areas had also been rezoned which made them attractive to developers.
