A day late and a dollar short Governor. There are a lot of people way ahead of you, like closing their beaches For spring break.

With the new procedures that will be put in place on Monday I think golf will be safe. Having said that it's happening 2 weeks later than it should be. Rickey Craig said in today's paper that the golf division will continue to do what ever it takes to stay ahead of the curve. What a joke, nothing he has done has been ahead of the curve starting with the conditions of the golf courses.

The beaches staying open during spring break was beyond stupid, greedy and extremely dangerous.

NO MORE congregating at the squares or anywhere for that matter. Just wondering......is golf essential?
The Governor is the one who added golf as 'essential' exercise. I can see walking/running/biking if you are doing it alone and keeping your distance from others. Some people are so happy they can get exercise, they have to invite their 'friends' to go with them. I've never seen a community that cannot do something alone

This explains why outdoor activities are not without risk of exposure.

The spread of a sneeze. It goes father than you think...

Coughs and sneezes travel farther than you think - YouTube

Older guys are most likely to die from COVID-19 so why would Villagers take that chance? They are risking dying alone in the hospital while gasping for air so they can have a few moments of fun...seems like a real no-brainer.

And yet.... we have really respectable data showing countries that did not require people to stay inside their homes actually did better, then we have respectable researchers showing us data of how much WORSE those confined to their homes have done, New York is now blaming the high death toll on those who were confined inside, keeps changing all the time, no wonder people are so frightened, angry, so inhuman to others (beating people in some cities for no masks... ? Yet, masks, in the hands of armatures, we are told by world renown microbiologists, are filled with germs, mishandled, pulled up and down with people contaminating themselves and other more, as well as contaminating items in stores more.... have you seen them hanging from rear view mirrors ? Have to read what microbiologists say about that ? No wonder people are so frightened and all believe their particular education makes them "experts" in this new virus.
Now I have read what breathing in the warm, moist, germ laden air of a mask can do to an individual ! So many on here quote "Fauci" ??? Good grief, this man seems to change his mind at least once a week if not more ! It's almost like a comedy act to see his "expert" TV speeches one after the other, each saying the exact opposite of what he said the week before. I suppose if I say I think a lot of what is advised on this board is really over the top, I'd be stomped to death "figuratively" that is. I have noticed a real nasty trend in people lately. Is is fear ? Lack of reason ? Perfectly nice people turning into nasty people, spying on neighbors and friends, making judgments on them, taking pictures of people having friends over to "turn them in" ? All so sad. So sad !

Generalizing condemns the many when what is being discussed are the actions of the few!!!

Where did you get the idea Americans were told to stay indoors? Americans were NEVER recommended to stay indoors. We were recommended to go outside, get fresh air, garden in your yard, exercise outside such as taking walks, riding a bike and what ever other exercise can be done outdoors. We were also recommended to keep 6 feet way from others while being outside.
