Default Squares opening

What would you think of the squares opening in less than 2 weeks?
Would you go?

Nope. To hot and humid to be outside. When the cooler months are upon us, I will certainly consider going.

Default Go to the squares?!?!

Not for a long time.

Just in case people haven’t been watching/reading the news, Covid cases are going up substantially; why risk getting the virus as old and in bad health as some of you are?
For each of us, life is a journey. Where has your life taken you? Your entire life leads to the next step, the chance to define yourself by where you're headed, instead of where you stand. Today is the day you introduce yourself to your destiny.

NO WAY-to hot & humid to be outdoors for anything but swimming--+ -rising COVID cases in Fl are a real warning, & combined with an influx of visitors- risk vs reward is an absolute no brainer

Will not be dining out & going to theaters for quite awhile--not willing to take any chances for a few minutes of pleasure--

Smart people did the same thing when HIV was rampant-- the result could be the same

Nope, we have made lots of sacrifices since early March. Don’t want to do anything yet that risks undoing all those sacrifices. The biggest risks I am willing to take are golfing and lap swimming, which are both very low risk if done carefully. Also, too many younger non-Villagers visit the town squares. I think that’s great during normal times, but not with Covid as younger people generally are not nearly as cautious.

As soon as The Vaccine is given and I give it a week or so to work its way into all my Hemoglobins I still wouldn't go to the square. I'm making the call about when and where and how we will move around. The worst for us personally is not going to the pool. Not too bad. Oh and that pesky vacation we were going to take to see the grandchildren. That's the rough one. Damn! We were looking forward to that big time.

The Squares! Forgetabouit.

See the thing that made this even more real to us was the loss of 4 friends to the virus. 1 in Jersey and 3 in N.Y. Great people, all former co-workers but they were the invincible types. I'm so sad to not have them but learned from their mistakes.

A great friend on TOTV'S had a family member die from the virus and it has devastated that person. The people who don't follow guidelines are lucky they haven't had situations like this happen to people they know.

My Opinion is its too early for the Squares but if you do end up going I wish you NOTHING but the best!

It can open but we won't be there. Limiting ourselves to golf and some small dinners with friends.

Sure, we would go to Brownwood where the sound system is better. Since the music is always to loud for me, we sit pretty far back where we are not close to people.

Nope. Too many new cases of Covid-19 positive tests. Too risky to be in crowds even if it were cooler and less humid. We still mask in stores. Carry out rather than eat in at restaurants.

Yes, and I hope many others too cautious to go so there is adequate space for those that do go.
