Just an observation from someone who has been camped out in his house going on two weeks now. BTW, before the snark starts, my hearing is excellent.
Perhaps I was in the group "guilty" of sunset watching off Buena Vista. A group decided we needed some sanity and brought carts to Glenview entrance for a couple of hours of socializing. Social distancing was responsibly practiced. People kept carts more than 6 feet apart and brought their own snacks, no sharing. Some chairs were set up at 6 feet apart as well. I understand how people from a distance would have thought us to be irresponsible but we were not. Life needs to go on, just be careful and follow the rules.

It may have seemed louder because less people congregating in the squares.

We played Havana yesterday and plan on playing with the Wednesday boys at Eagle Ridge on Wednesday and Thursday at Sarasota......

Ambassadors say that the topic of closing the golf courses comes up during their meetings......

I certainly hope they don’t..... that’s about one of the last of the outdoor activities left !!!

I wasn't sure if the volume was up or it just sounded louder because virtually all of the typical ambient noise was gone.

I think you should keep doing whatever you feel like doing.

Just keep your distance from other people.

You are so right. Been home too and it makes us angry when there are those of us so immature that they can’t control themselves and stay home.

Default Music on square

I’m impressed by the dancers that come to dance. Plenty of room to stay away from each other. Lots of hand sanitizers in evidence.
People being polite when walking.
Common sense and being mindful.

We will survive this virus, and be stronger as a country and community. But this disease that affects ms. Minton can only be addressed by her and mental health professionals. In my ten years here, i've never heard or seen anything that pi $$ed me off nearly as much as this description of our town square!!!
wtf??

Go to the Villages hyphen News site and look for the article on ghostly town squares, then decide for yourself how you feel about the description at the end of the story.

In my opinion, TV should shut OFF all speakers which is certainly fostering the idiots to dance and not stay at home like the rest of us.

I don’t understand. In California my daughters are encouraged by the health department to keep up their outdoor exercise routine, just make it safe. Keep a distance of 6 feet from others. Don’t touch others, don’t touch your face, try not to touch anything else, wash you hands before you go out and when you come home.

If these dancers are following those rules I don’t see a problem.

My personal opinion is ....everything should be cancelled, if they cancel activities then golf should also be cancelled . The restraunts also should of been closed, what a disaster for spreading anything up to and including the flu. I'm not saying this to make anyone angry or start a bashing against my opinion.
