Yes, I agree, "how stupid". Not the golf, the post.

I'll give the OP the benefit of the doubt and assume he/she doesn't know the new check in procedures---there is no contact and 6 foot social distancing between golfers and staff, and no touching of any cards or slips. No one is at risk, at least no more so than fetching your mail.

Care to amend your OP?

Don’t be selfish. Do the right thing, the hard thing. Please stay home.
This must be the zillionth post along those lines, enough already!

The governor has issued a statewide stay at home order that is very specific concerning which businesses may stay open and which activities are permitted. This carries force of law and should be obeyed by all citizens.

Those people who go to the grocery store or pharmacy, and those people who go cycling, golfing, walking and fishing are FOLLOWING THE LAW---Get off their cases!

There appears to be a subset of Villagers who are separating themselves into some kind of uber-class coronavirus crusaders. They are EXCEEDING the requirements of the executive order by limiting their activity beyond the scope of the order, whether out of paranoia or ignorance, while some are going around and taking photos of their neighbors who might be violating the order.

It's perfectly fine to stay home, but it doesn't make you MORE law abiding, compassionate, caring and smarter than those that are also following the law. And it certainly doesn't entitle you to call those people idiots, selfish or entitled

Folks who are calling people "idiots, selfish, or entitled" are referring to those who are not following the guidelines for social distancing. That's just my take.
