A lot of these administrative meetings could be held, if The Villages would catch up with technology. Corporations all over the world hold meetings remotely via Skype, Zoom, and other computer-based video conferencing.

In fact, they have a Facebook page. Anyone who wanted to, could join a meeting and comment, live, during any of these meetings if they chose to hold them via video conferencing.

We have a top-notch Computer Club here at the Villages, It's a damned shame the people responsible for running our community's government don't make use of it.

And as of 5PM they were still sitting shoulder to shoulder outside at Red Sauce and City Fire in LSL. Not as many as yesterday but certainly NOT separated by 6' and certainly not 1/2 the tables were removed. The square itself (parking spaces) was about 50% empty. Very eerie.

I’m surprised that the pools are closed. People are not that close at the pools and germs should die in the water. The pool is much needed exercise with everything else canceled.

What about the infected person who didn't know they were infected yet was at the pool half an hour before you got there. Did you touch the same gate to enter that they used to leave? Lets say that you selected the same chair or lounge chair to sit on. Then you touched the same chair or used the drink dispensing machine, threw away some trash, used the water fountain or even the restroom. That's how it could spread so in order to slow this from spreading, you eliminate as much possible exposure then just perhaps less people will die like they have died in Italy. Just my humble selfish opinion. I like living.

City fire is ridiculous the way they pack people in the bar area, I Guess they’re exempt from using common sense. There is a lot of ignorant people in TV.
As well as business owners that only care about the almighty dollar.

Maybe someone should take a picture of the bar area @ City Fire & Red Sauce & fwd it to the proper authorities, it could be very useful if and when for future litigation

You are exactly right, these People are just not getting it
They think that the rules dont apply to them. Same goes for shopping and going out to eat, its unnecessary in a time like this. STAY HOME

Every smoker and drinker that contracts the virus might well occupy a hospital bed that would otherwise be used by a person that behaved properly.

I ‘heard’ that there’s a loophole in the ‘law’ concerning outdoor bars being exempt from the ban...anyone know for sure?
