Non-commvention results in super spreading.

The gathering of non-commercial radio people in Philadelphia earlier this month resulted in a significant number of positive COVID-19 cases. One of the organizers of the convention, Roger LaMay of WXPN/Philadelphia issued a statement in response to those reports: “Thanks for sharing an amazing week with us at the Non-commvention We have been made aware that some individuals who attended the Non-commvention last week have since tested positive for COVID-19. I and a couple of my colleagues here at XPN are among them. It is not possible to determine whether this event or related travel fell within their infectious window, and understand that there is an uptick in case rates in many of our communities, but we recommend following the CDC guidance For those affected for any reason, we wish you a quick and full recovery. I am personally grateful to be fully vaccinated and expect to be better in a few days.”
