Do a little research. The pools are one of the safest places to be right now. From the CDC:

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”"

This doesn't cover if someone sneezes directly on you, or if you touch surfaces that have residual traces of coronavirus... however, as long as the surfaces get splashed with pool water regularly, it will inactivate the virus.

To be clear - it is relatively safe IN the pool... but not if you're sitting on the deck with a big group of folks. And being in the pool is certainly far safer than being in a restaurant, or shopping for groceries.

OP didn’t say there was a problem with being in a pool. His complaint is their being close to one another and ignoring social distance rule.

They will be scratching their heads wondering why did all those dogs poop into plastic bags.

I don't see a benefit in calling people "idiots". Nothing is known about them. Maybe they live together.

Maybe Chatbrat can explain why it is necessary to bully people to make a point. When you refer to people as fat old ladies you have attacked their body, their age and their gender. I know some national leaders feel this is the way to talk and you are modeling their example. Shame on them. Shame on you.

Maybe he could have been less accurate in the descriptors he used to satisfy the PC crowd. Weight challenged, very high BMI, clinically obese for fat. Senior, geriatric or way up there in years for old. One thing is for sure, they were not behaving intelligently, using common sense or being prudent. In fact their behavior was quite uncaring and callous because if one or more of them had contracted the dreaded virus they would likely pass it onto others.

Couple of years from now, there will be articles about the Stupid Idiotic Mass Hysteria of 2020.

We can thank the media

And here I thought TV would be a haven of sanity...but plenty of chicken littles here too

I am sure you are quite correct.

Say out loud ....everything I do not agree with it is the fault of the media. If they just kept their mouth shut who would know
