I drive to the course alone, avoid any other stops, and play alone. I think the risks are pretty minimal. I know others to continue to, but I avoid playing with groups.

Forcing the curve to flatten is going to destroy us.

Not that I want to quote myself, but I forgot one important thing. Many might want to stay home when they're sick, but they simply can't afford it. It's why so many lower wage earners work rain or shine, sick or not. But again, by forcing them to stay home, sure it helps the virus spread more slowly, but it's killing our economy. There's no easy way to handle a pandemic.

I haven't missed a round that I would have otherwise played.

My province just declared a state of emergency, closing all provincial and municipal parks, so no disc golf in Nova Scotia unless you happen to have a private course nearby (which most dont).

This is serious. Maybe more than we think.

I mean, the MONEY stopped.

If everyone does their part we can at least slow this down. The quicker we turn this around, the quicker we go back to "normal" life

The smoke was passed around freely and we broke into smaller groups and played a round. Our county has an average age of around 55. So most of us are in the late boomer to the early millennial age range. We have only 2 active coronavirus cases in my county right now, so we are not in a hot zone situation like the large cities. We are taking it seriously, and most things are closed now and the shelves in the stores are mostly bare. We may have to play solo rounds in the future, we'll see.

Many incremental decisions have been superseded by a more severe incremental decision days later — examples include going from games w/o spectators to no games at all and from social distancing to shelter in place. That you think you might have to do something in the future means that you should probably do that thing now. But this seems like a fairly unpopular stance. <shrug>

"Am I wrong" - Yes, disc golf players should use common sense and is a great time for a solo round.

"Is this all a media hype?" - If they're advertising a disc to buy, maybe, otherwise NO.

"Let us know your opinion." - Who do you work for? Is this a survey or something?

Simple gif showing how we can make a difference.

You could add, "This person didn't play disc golf in a big group."

Beaches have been shut down because people were openly not following guidelines.

Guess what will happen if people start seeing big groups not following guidelines on disc golf courses.
