Default When will Village clubs be able to hold large meetings

I read somewhere that the Villages will not allow large group meetings in the rec centers until October. Is that true?

Can anyone provide a link to info about this.

So far all of our clubs have no definitive answer From TV when we will be having meetings since each is over 600 members.

Our small group can meet, but only using The tables that fit in the room at 6’. So it was decided to split up group.

I don't think anyone knows for certain, but I believe that the people who will make that decision will please some and annoy others and that those people are probably not trying to do either, but to think what is the safest way to deal with this ongoing real problem, especially since it affects the age group who lives here in The Villages more than any other age group.


I have my umbrella with me that says "I am not paranoid" and I sometimes hit people with it.

Remember...even if you are paranoid it doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you!

They haven’t even allowed all of the OUTDOOR sports to resume. Indoors you can only “meet” if everyone sits at separate tables 6 feet apart. That makes room capacity about 10 in smaller rooms to maybe 24 in bigger rooms.

I’m kind of thinking it won’t be be allowed in our lifetimes.

That is because people are still dying from it. 80% of all people who have died from Covid-19 are the same age as most of us Villagers.

An old friend from Ohio died from it day before yesterday. Their family is much like ours and probably yours. I have known all four generations of these good folks.

This morning their daughter posted on Facebook to pray for their mother, his wife. She is sick with Covid-19. They can't make plans for a funeral for their dad.

Scientists have deployed a new meter that can measure a person's feelings of safety.

It is attached to the brain of an elderly female villager.

When the meter goes into the green "I feel safe now" range, the whole world will be allowed to re open.

I thought I saw in the Rec News that no clubs until October. Could be wrong.
