However, for people that need to use mass transit,. Which includes literally millions of people in New York, DC, Chicago, San Fran... social distancing could be real problem. My daughter is one of them.

I bet Pop Warner football gets screwed over big time. I'm sure a lot of parents won't let their kids join team sports this year.

And who knows what implications this could have for school....

Cincinnati tried free mass transit here. That lasted about 2 days and it was stopped for obvious reasons being more people started using it which made the situation worse.
Now the buses have shields installed for the drivers that protects them from passengers.

.

To what degree, depends on how much things are opened up, and what progress has been made on treatment. Certainly we're not going back to 2019.

As with you and others, I'm fairly socially distanced anyway. The big jump will be when schools are re-opened, with the children in my life.

At first I was worried that we weren't taking the coronavirus seriously. But then I saw this Warriors meme, and it's very reassuring. The hand sanitizer bottles are a nice touch.

I'm a bit of a loner...I don't go to bars, clubs, sporting events, movies or concerts. For me, this isn't much different than my usual life. I plan to keep up this lifestyle until at least the end of the year, regardless of what the white house says.

Good question. I am a social guy, I like going up to the bar for a hockey game once a week. I play leagues and tournaments, I play swat golf with some very old guys in a league, I like getting out to the club to catch a band, I go to hockey, baseball, football games, I go to concerts and festivals and we used to enjoy going out to eat at crowded restaurants a couple times a week.

No, I won't be doing much of it for a long time, likely until a vaccine. Even then, I think my lifestyle is permanently changed. There are some things on the list above that I may never go back to. We'll see. Life is changing too quickly to predict much.

Quoted for the truth of the matter.

Taking a moment out of the day to have a good laugh doesn't mean some of us aren't taking this seriously. In fact, I think laughter is essential for good mental health in these trying times.

I just want to get back to a place where I'm not wiping off groceries with bleach when I get home.

I can live without seeing a concert or a hockey game for awhile. And those are easily my 2 greatest passions outside of disc golf.

Foo Fighters and RATM both had concerts scheduled this year that I was super stoked to go see. Ah well, maybe 2021 will bring better fortune.

This is Heritage Park in Flower Mound, Texas (near Dallas-Fort Worth). There is a pretty simple sign about social distancing at the first tee. I have tried to load the picture here (I posted one on the course page), but I can't get it to load here. I like this idea, but I don't think enough people are paying attention:
