OC youth sports largely cancelled as coronavirus transmission rates remain clouded by uncertainty

Dr. Bernadette Boden-Albala, founding dean of UC Irvine’s public health program, said the best bet is to look at long term testing trends. “I never look at the number of tests per day being performed. I really try to look at the total. The total number of positive over the total number of tests,” Boden-Albala said in a Tuesday phone interview. “It seems to me we’ve gotten a greater lag time and I’m not sure why that is,” she said. “So I never use actual numbers of the day. I go back and look at what’s come in over the number of days.”
