I'm not much on writing or reading for that matter. I've been busy because I've taken a really good look at how much yard work needed to be done and was surprised. I figure if I get all this done and I fall victim to the virus at least I'll go out with the best looking yard in the villages, well almost. After reading a lot of these posts I noticed we are all getting a little testy with each other. We've all had our daily social routines change and it's natural to start bouncing of the walls if we let it get to us. This occurred through no fault of our own and it's a test of our will. Let's fight together and not give this ******* [COVID-19] the satisfaction. I'm off to buy plants and pressure washing cleaner.

The Anytime Fitness on 44 reports on their website members have the option can freeze or cancel you membership. However, there appears to be no way to contact them. As such, unsure and maybe unfair but appears to be a Covid-19 business plan to keep direct member billing in place, regardless that many/most of their members are retired seniors. If anyone knows how or has been successful contacting them, please reply.

Not good enough, considering there are still people disregarding the advisory.

Hey, everyone is stressed and out of their comfort zone. But responses should be RESPECTFUL to the fellow human on the other end. That said, I'm not Amish, so not really into turning the other cheek. We should just try to relax and take this a day at a time.
The real reason for so much incivility, rudeness and plain meanness on TOTV, and other social media, is the anonymity of those messaging. It simply brings out the worst in people. How much name calling do you think there would be if you had to sign your name and phone number to each post?

Here is the latest projections for Florida's peaking during this Pandemic: Researchers from the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics created graphs showing how COVID-19 or the coronavirus is projected to impact every U.S. state and Florida is expected to become the next epicenter, behind New York, but is not expected to peak until May 6. Anyone want to take a guess as to why we are lagging behind the other states. Open beaches, no enforcement of isolation and no curfews is my best guess. If we do not get onboard with the mitigation requirements, Florida will have a huge loss of life as the large portion of the population have most or all of the high risk health issues.

Please explain, in your next/second post, how the golf staff is being jeopardized?

You are right. I don't view any other "social" sites and I'm not on Facebook. I guess there are alot of disappointing postings that I don't see all across the web. I've been on ToTv long enough to know the posters I wouldn't want to get stuck sitting by at a local tavern. I've only recently started using the ignore feature for certain members.

Golfing is the same as walking or carting while carrying sticks. Maintain social distancing and it's as safe an outdoor activity as any of the others listed.

I am concerned that too many people will fail to read the part of the stay-at-home order that says some outdoor activities are OK and will barricade themselves indoors. Stay at home in this context does not mean don't go outside. It means avoid personal contact with potentially contaminated people or objects.

Fresh air and sunshine are good for body and soul. There are many outdoor activities we can enjoy in perfect safety. Just follow the CDC guidelines.

This can include making a grocery store run, getting household consumer products, or obtaining products needed to keep households sanitized.

Outdoor activities: Exercise is advised, but only when practicing social distancing protocols provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention for COVID-19. Some good examples of individual activities include walking, running, biking, golfing, etc.

Work: If it is necessary for you to leave to get to and from work.
To care for others and religious needs: If you need to care for a family member, friend, or pet to provide spiritual support.

Additional steps of personal responsibility: It is advised that residents take additional steps that involve:

Practicing washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after being anywhere public, or after coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth when your hands are unwashed.
  • Avoiding contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Practicing social distancing by making sure there is at least six feet between you and other people.
  • If you are sick, stay at home.

As of noon today, Sumter county had a total of 49 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The age range is between 18 and 92 years old, with 13 people hospitalized.

Go to the store once a week like before!
while i would normally agree with you, these are most unusual times. the shelves are so empty in our end of town, you end up wandering from store to store looking for basic needs. ex: 1 store had milk, but was out of bread, 2nd store had bread but both were out of dish detergent. (??) not sure why people are hoarding Dawn. i wish we COULD go back to the once a week shop like normal-it's very frustrating under these conditions

The area was already under a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., although residents can travel to and from work at that time.
Sumter County has NO legal authority to issue any such orders; they can dictate whatever they want but they have no such authority to enforce it! Does anyone believe because someone is elected to council that he/she has authority over OUR lives - only in very LIMITED circumstances. Don't "they" always say the land of the free" … I believe they've stopped saying the "home of the Brave"

Golf is allowed? I guess this means that you should go by yourself and walk the course. Because there are no golf cars made with seats keeping people 6 feet apart. Who is kidding who?
