The Oct. 2 San Francisco Chronicle has an Associated Press item about 135 players and staff of San Jose State University's football team coming here for pre-season football practice ("After COVID Restricts Contact Sports in Santa Clara County, HSU Provides Space for San Jose State University Football Team to Practice," posted Sept. 30). Really?! I like football, but importing 135 new possible sources of coronavirus increases our infection risk, maybe even without them agreeing to enforce our local coronavirus prevention and quarantine requirements on themselves. Also, players who get the virus add to our already-maxed out local health care system. Am I missing something here?
