    (CNN)Two teenagers in Florida have died from Covid-19 complications, according to data posted by the Florida Department of Health. The teens were between the ages of 14 and 17, the department said.

    This brings the total number of minors who have died in relation to the virus in Florida to seven. The others were a 9-year-old girl from Putnam County, an 11-year-old boy in Miami-Dade County, an 11-year-old girl in Broward County, a 16-year-old girl in Lee County, and a 17-year-old boy in Pasco County.
    In a telephone interview with CNN's Randi Kaye on Monday, Florida Education Association President Frederick Ingram says news that two additional teenagers died due to Covid-19 complications is "tragic" and "part of what we are going to have to deal with as well when you talk about student and children's mental health."
    "Their classmates are getting deathly sick. Grieving for a child can be traumatizing, especially in a school setting. This is devastating for a child trying to make his or her way through grade school," Ingram said.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - An additional seven COVID-19-related deaths have been reported in Spokane County since Friday.

    Back to sports some MLB teams left their guard down and the results 18 Marlin player Positive only played 3 games so far, because positive test came out. Cardinals 13 players currently positive next 6 games postponed so far 2 against Milwaukee and 4 games this week against Tigers also postponed. Reports Marlin players and Cardinal players being irresponsible infected other players and coaches. MLB is not in a bubble.

    NBA and WNBA doing great but in a bubble.

    What this tells me is Lady Zag coaches and players should try to create a modified bubble. This can be done by coaches verbally contracting with their players on the standards (safety precautions) 24/7.

    It would be a great idea for the WCC to only have local refs for all games. Avoiding refs having to fly on public planes. Refs able to drive to all games. When March madness got cancelled last year I remember some refs were already coming up positive for Covid-19.

    Another concern do other teams in WCC have private charter like the ZAGs. If not concern about players from other teams having to fly on public planes.

    MLB and players had a false sense of security starting the season. Lady Zags and WCC need to understand the real challenge starts when you start playing other teams. If you have one team let their guard down they pass on Covid-19 to the team they are playing etc, and the next thing like MLB postponed games are getting canceled left and right.

    Lets hope the Lady Zags and the WCC have strict guidelines from the beginning. Not like MLB who were very lenient with their players at the beginning and are now trying to tighten their standards after the fact.

    Below is a MLB player and manager perspective on whats going on in MLB right now:

    Boyd acknowledged the first reaction to the news of the MLB postponements was a disappointment, not just that the Tigers couldn't play ball, but that some perceived loose behavior by players around the league has threatened to derail this season.

    "You know the gut reaction is, like, awww man," Boyd said. "It's not my place to judge. We don't know what happened. There's no official word, so to pass judgment on them, especially not knowing what happened, it's not my play, you know.

    "With that, you kind of have that reality check. We don't write the script, we just respond to it, and what's our response to this going to be? How can we respond and make the most of that? That's what we're doing.

    "It doesn't mean our thoughts don't go there (to disappointment) ... but worrying about it or complaining about it isn't really going to change anything."

    Boyd and the Tigers have had few issues with COVID-19, aside from some players, most notably Daniel Norris, catching it during Summer Camp.

    That's not by accident. The Tigers, he said, remain vigilant with their social-distancing practices at and, most importantly, away from the ballpark.

    They've been following their protocols and MLB's, and Boyd said MLB is working on instituting additional, stricter safety protocols, though nothing has been finalized yet.

    It's really all about policing each other. It always has been.

    "An awful lot," said Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire, asked how often the COVID-19 situation has been brought up with the team. "We've had meetings, lots of meetings, and anytime we see something, we have more meetings about it. Just talking about your responsibilities as a player is to your family and this baseball family. You have to take care of yourself off the field and do all the right things.
