Stats & Eggs: Santa Clara Country responds to Shanahan’s criticisms

Everything you need to know in less than five minutes

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan didn’t shy away from sharing his feelings about the timing of Santa Clara County’s announcement of the ban on contact sports. Normally, the only way you get public criticism from Shanahan is if you’re a wide receiver that doesn’t block on running plays, but he made sure to mention his disappointment multiple times when speaking with the media.

On Monday, Santa Clara County responded in a statement:

“The dramatic rise in hospitalizations and the need to take quick action to protect the community moved faster than anyone would have hoped. The 49ers are one of the thousands of organizations impacted by our most recent actions. The County of Santa Clara has been in regular communication with the 49ers both before and after the announcement of the revised mandatory directive affecting all contact sports. We continue to do everything we can to support the 49ers, as well as all local businesses, affected communities, and families impacted by the pandemic.

This is a team effort – COVID-19 affects every individual in the county in every sector and every business. Given steeply rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, our priority is on hospitals and ensuring that individuals can get the care they need, whether because of COVID-19, stroke, heart attack or other trauma where they would need hospitalization.”
