Do what you want but if you get the virus I wish you well and hope it does not become too serious for you. It’s not the flu. Good luck to you.
I don't recall Tony Fauci addressing the issue of golf, but he might have.

The overwhelming majority of states with stay at home orders allow golf. And btw, I would blame the virus.

Well, I would blame the Chinese then the people who traveled and brought it here. Why blame the victim? They get punished enough.

Picking on no individual - will blaming somebody save your life. Driving the car out of the rear view mirror is a sure way of you causing an accident.

Reasonable precautions will also protect you. When playing, don't touch anything not yours, like the ball washers. After playing, leave everything in the cart but your clothes and you. When inside, put your clothes in the hamper and wash your face and hands (or shower if you feel the need).
Hmmm...Do your clothes magically wash themselves or are you potentially exposing your laundress?

There is nothing wrong with learning from an autopsy - but forward thinking in a crisis until problem solved makes much more sense. Then it's time for lessons learned for future prevention.

Shameful and selfish
It is not only you that is affected if you should become ill.
This Florida governor is going to cause the entire countries ability to heal to be delayed, due to his inadequacies. All the kids at spring break, and all the snowbirds at the Villages will be going home to other parts of the country and this illness will go on and on for months because of tens of thousands of thoughtless people
I've been disappointed in DeSantis ever since he didn't close all beaches in the state early on. We have a very wishy washy governor.

I haven't heard about this happening. If I am reading this correctly, you are saying that the virus which is on a surface can become airborne if it is disturbed? Can this really happen? Where did you hear or read about this? By any chance, do you have a link?

Maybe, but he's not alone. Cuomo wanted everything to sop yet the subways and public transportation are open. They are curtailing service because their front line workers are down with 19. Their ridership is 87% of last year. Yet they continue to run. I find it somewhat amusing that when government tries to direct behavior they are chastised, then when the don't they are chastised. I view his delay was because he had faith in people, only when they proved his faith was misplaced did he acted. Same here, pools and rec centers and recreational facilities were mostly open until we proved that we could not be trusted to follow guidance....then the guidance had to become a dictate. I won't discuss golf because closing golf would also mean the walking trails, bike rides, MMP's would also need to be closed as they have a higher possibility of spread than any golf course. Also, only 16 States have closed courses, just in case anyone thinks we are an island.
