after comparing numbers & speaking to people from 'up north,' Connecticut's death numbers are about 1000 more than the entire state of Florida. something to think about.

I don’t think I’ve seen one thread, news article, idle speculation, anything regarding when entertainment might return to the squares, or how the entertainment and the audience might differ compared to pre-Covid 19.

Thoughts?
In "The VHA Voice" Richard Baier, District manager and John Rohan, Recreation Director suggest checking "Villages Recreation Park and News", the district website Village Community Development Districts, WVLG radio or The Daily Sun to get the latest info on when activities and events with reopen.

My opinion is that they should already be open. Those who
wish to listen or dance should be able to do so. Those who
are worried about the virus are free to stay away.
Ah, another simplistic approach.

Of course that could change.
According to last weeks Happy News May entertainment insert bands were "scheduled" to start playing on May 1st and have been going every day since. My sarcastic guess that will REALLY happen shortly after we all get the vaccination that some clueless politicians says could be in September. My real guess is around when Governor D says Disney entertainment parks (not just shopping areas) open fully and allows 50,000 people to run all over each other to get in line at Avatar or It's A Small World.

Unless they can figure a way to "crowd control" the square to 50 people it's sadly gonna be a looooong time.

Friday's paper said squares are closed indefinitely. Seems like the right thing to do.

we've really enjoyed the concerts and live theatre in TV... we constantly were at The Sharon, The Savannah Center (as well as at venues outside TV)... today's Daily Sun has a whole list of what's coming and when....we'd go to the Squares to see a few bands, or to introduce visitors to the nightlife

nice...but we're not interested in being shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of folks until a vaccine has been developed and we've had a shot

Like the vaccines developed for MERS, SARS, HIV? Or the flu vaccine that may be 50% effective? Like those vaccines? Oh wait, never mind.

Been a very long time since I talked to anyone ( Folks ) in the Entertainment Department but when I did I agree with you they were Folksy actually Very Folksy .

I’m guess those are inside...squares are outside. I would think there a difference

You still touch that newspaper? Not worth reading anyway.
