COVID-19 Check-in 2.0

COVID-19 is affecting all of us and has already changed the way CFB games will be played this year. There is the real possibility we won't have a 2020-21 CFB season. Many of our own Dawgnation members have seen first-hand what COVID-19 can do to a family member or even to themselves. Because of this I believe it is appropriate to have a thread on this board dedicated to discussing COVID-19. However, previous threads have gone off the rails due to personal attacks and partisan bickering that have come from all sides. In order to have this type of thread we need to establish some ground rules that will be strictly enforced by the mods.

  1. This thread is mostly for hearing from those personally affected by COVID-19 and getting updates to see how members of Dawgnation are doing.
  2. Any discussion regarding COVID-19 and current events must be fact driven. Disagreements are fine but you need to back them up.
  3. No politics at all. Given the polarized environment this does not end well.
  4. No personal attacks.
  5. Don't DV people you disagree with, but respond and explain why you disagree. We want conversations.
  6. If someone is breaking the rules, especially anyone interjecting politics, pushing unfounded conspiracies, or insulting others use the flag option to report the comment.

I ran this by the mods before posting and they are fine with a new thread, but it is being given a very short leash. If things get out of hand, it will be closed quickly.
