The unprecedented situation calls for unusual actions.
According to sources familiar with the discussion, the athletic directors of the University of Southern California and UCLA joined forces and held a joint zoom call with Los Angeles County health officials on Wednesday night to provide a way for the football team to begin practice.
And it works.
A source said: “This is encouraging.”
Therefore, it is encouraging that once President Pac-12 approves this step, the team will prepare for a whole-class internship, which may be carried out as early as Friday.
USC’s Mike Bohn and UCLA’s Martin Jarmond joined forces to improve the clarity of health authorities is this development, which is the latest major development in the Pac-1
Earlier Wednesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom (Gavin Newsom) lifted the state health regulations that have prevented four California schools from practicing traditional practices. For example: a queue of no more than 12 players.
Newsom’s move allows the school to deal directly with local authorities on security agreements.
(Kate Brown of Oregon does the same in Oregon and Oregon.)
The source said that Los Angeles County officials stated that they would not hinder the practice of having full contact with bears and Trojans on an 11-to-11 basis.
The Rams and stormtroopers, which are only a few miles away from the USC campus, have been practicing for weeks.
However, the freedom of “California Four” has not yet been completed. Stanford University and the University of California still have to cooperate with local officials-Santa Clara County and the City of Berkeley-to obtain permits.
Given that Covid-19 is more common in Southern California, the development of Los Angeles County may help facilitate the removal of restrictions in the Bay Area.
President Pac-12 will hold a meeting on Friday and can approve the return to the game through formal voting or general consensus.
The focus of the discussion is whether the team must wait for the rapid response antigen test expected at the end of this month.
If the team starts practicing later this month, the season may start on Halloween.
The source said that in addition, the University of Southern California and UCLA have obtained approval for indoor sports activities, which is a key step in the return of basketball.
The NCAA announced the start of the regular basketball season on November 25, which means that the Pac-12 team must participate in training in late October.
The permit provided by Los Angeles County earlier this week should allow brown bears and Trojan motors to reach that goal.
