Minor league baseball continues, NASCAR continues, Olympic trials continue so not sure "the rest of the sports world" is with the NBA and college basketball. That may change but asking government to take charge of my life is not anywhere near my wheelhouse.
This is exactly correct!

Although you may not like government interference in your life, it is very important that you follow the guidelines that they have suggested. Not to do so would be foolish and selfish. Frankly, I am hoping that many of the concerts scheduled in the very near future are canceled. It is just a matter of time before Sumter county is affected. We do not live in a “bubble.“ Wake up, sir or madam.
What course? IF that actually happened, it could be a real game changer, IF he was infected. We can expect the first cases here in 5-10 days, again IF that actually happened and IF he has COVID-19. He also would win this month's Darwin award.

In virology? Microbiology? Or medieval French literature??? Sorry, couldn't help myself, it's just that you have some valid points and others that are a little bit in left field

Just my opinion and certainly not personal, but I think people who continue to shake hands are very selfish. If one doesn’t care about their own health, that’s their privilege but don’t pass germs on to others.
Why even wash your hands?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but you can't distort the math. If there were 100 people in each age group, there would be 26 cases in 300 people. That's less than 9%, not 26%.

All that you have to fear is fear itself said eloquently by FDR, you don’t want to be exposed, stay home, the only chances that you have to contract this is contact with an individual that has it, currently there are no one with Corona Virus anywhere close to here. Live your life, but please let others live theirs as they choose, yes the Hospitals are on top of all the issues and if anyone is exposed there are procedures in place right now. Again don’t fuel the fears Our media is overdoing it and scaring people!!!! Just be cautious wash your hands often, maintain a bottle of alcohol based sanitizer in every vehicle and if female in your pocketbook, use it often!!!!!!!!! by the way masks are of no use unless you get an actual respirator

In that case, why even get within 100 yards of another person???? But I agree, handshaking is something that we should dispense with for now. Of course , if the person offering a hand is "selfish" then the person accepting it is "stupid"

Cancelling an event is also about controlling the "spread". In my view, one should not take cancellation policies as a personal affront, but attempts to take "control" of Covid-19.
Jus' sayin'

It was 26% of people over 60 who contracted the disease. But either % is too high.

My main point was “contain”, that word was used countless times in press Briefings yesterday

The “100 yards” analogy to shaking hands is absurd. Huge difference, Doc.
