I fully expect the UNC system to allow the return of on-campus training for athletic teams once Gov. Cooper opens public gyms, YMCAs and private exercise facilities which will be shortly after the Memorial Day weekend.
The main reason it wasn't done today was because he wanted to avoid a total stampede into the beaches, gyms, and bars over a holiday weekend.
Would not be a smart public health move nor a good look PR wise.

heck, i'd be willing to attend a football game in a heartbeat! there's far less of a risk "outdoors" than indoors. of course i'd still wear my n95 and i'd still prefer 6 feet distancing if possible. but standing in long lines for entrance is unacceptable. using bathrooms might be a problem too, so i wouldn't be consuming any beverages at all during the game...

BTW: NC had an increase of 700 new COVID cases TODAY.
There is no legitimate metric you can go by that would suggest we should be entering phase two this earlier.
However, there are political realities behind every decision and Gov. Cooper knows he can not continue this lockdown much longer. He is just trying to buy as much time as possible at this point.
Which is why I think that we need to rely upon the science. The openings may be a matter of a rush to normalcy which in my opinion is a mistake. All factors must be given serious discretion in earnest. Perhaps we need to pause and think seriously because we are entering uncharted waters.
