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
Go to the restaurant of your choice and get takeout. Help keep them open. As for shopping, no, you don't have to go to Belk's or BB&B for new dishes that can wait til later. But food and medicine are necessities. Even in China and Italy, the grocery stores are open. Use their delivery services if need be.

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.
I agree with you but, the same thing could be said for golf starter shacks or bathrooms or trash cans, or filling up water bottles when putting your hands on the ambassadors water barrel spout.

I just feel we should apply all of these thoughts and rules to all the public areas within the Villages.

We also need to be cautious and start taking responsibility for our own health.

Properly chlorinated pool water will kill viruses. However, it won't kill viruses coming from that guy who just bumped into you and laughed in your direction. It won't kill viruses from that person who just sneezed in close proximity to you. It won't kill viruses that may have been deposited on the gate, the drinking fountain, or on the faucet handles in the bathroom. So yeah, I'm for closing the pools.

There is a LOT of misinformation floating around......
wouldn’t you think that if there were any truth to that , the pools would remain open and everyone encouraged to take a swim instead of shutting them all down ?????

Just relying on common sense here .....

Where are our elected officials in at least Sumter County to address what the Village management is ignoring?

I think it’s a shame that the pools have closed because poor compliance to the 10 person limit. Why can’t we use the rev center personnel to enforce?

Another way to look at this, the more that can be done now to reduce the risk, the sooner things should start to return to normal.

Especially given we don't know what we don't know so there is a great deal of uncertainty. The experts will hopefully get a lot smarter over the next couple weeks once the test capacity is available on the high throughput diagnostic instruments.

My guess is people sweat too much and that there is direct contact skin-to-skin in softball. At least with golf, you can keep a 6 foot distance from your group through all holes, AND you don't share clubs as you would share a bat, ball, and so on.

Yah, a friend went to his local market last Friday. When he got to the produce area, suddenly a youngish man and woman began to cough out loud and sneeze on purpose all over the foodstuffs. He left quickly before his urge to deck them got overwhelming. They continued their store run, laughing over and over again.
