Social distancing is the key to stopping this killer virus. The president has declared a national state of emergency , this is what I’ve been advocating to the virus deniers

Now that's one of the most sensible posts you've made

Well said. Let's get ahead of this and avoid becoming quarantined. Be safe, and concerned about your neighbors.

It is a matter of when a case shows up in the Villages and not if. Are they even testing for it yet here?

Government exists to protect society. Yet the majority of TV people engage in self destructive behaviors like overeating, drinking alcohol, sedentary behavior with over reliance on TV golf carts that shorten their lives. Humans can be self destructive, we have to follow CDC guides before it’s too late

Village residents evidently got serious about the virus-absurd panic buying at food markets, drugstores,etc. at same time, they ignore the six ft. Personal distance guideline!
