So to stay that close to someone from your childhood is either impossible, or only achieved through social media. (It also depends greatly on what the word "close" means.)
Wow, way to make it all about you and your experience. Why is your experience the norm and Hamp's the outlier? My own experience is similar to Hamps, a lot of my friends are from grade school seeing as it was the longest (grades K-12) time frame. Added more in college, at work and on the course. My best friend is from kindergarten and we still get together 2-3 times a year in person. And I dont do social media so none of those kind of "friends".

UPDATE: March 17, 2020 at 11:34 a.m. EDT

After careful deliberation, the PDGA Board of Directors has decided to suspend PDGA sanctioning of all events for a minimum of 15 days through March 31, 2020. This decision takes effect immediately and will be re-evaluated in the coming days as information and guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) develops.

Should the PDGA be issuing slight refunds on memberships?

40 million people living in the US were born in a different country. Now add in the number of native-born American adults who who live in a different state they grew up in. It would be interesting to see what scenario would be more the norm in the US.

Yes, but they won't.

Just like how colleges won't be refunding dorm payments and meal plans that the students won't be able to use for half a semester.

Why would the PDGA give out refunds NOW? It has been like 2 hours since they announced the temporary sanctioning restrictions.

Now, if this goes for another 5 or 6 months, then I could see them extending all memberships another 6 months or something.

I'd rather be getting my tax dollars back for all the public services currently closed.
