Reasons to play disc golf right now:

♦ Exercise (boosts immunity)
♦ Sunlight (vitamin D boosts immunity)
♦ Stress relief/meditative
♦ Nothing else to do
♦ Easily able to practice social distancing
♦ Already risking exposure when you go to gas station/grocery store/work

Reasons not to play disc golf right now:

♦ Raises risk of exposure by maybe 0.0005%
♦ You're sponsored by Yikun or routinely move your discs through airports/hospitals.
♦ You're so clumsy that you can easily hurt yourself and need hospital care.

Can we just, like, do that always from now on. Itd make disc golf much less infuriating.

Something to consider that I don't think has been mentioned, the surface area of a disc golf basket is fairly small. Any thoughts on carrying a damp towel soaked in Clorox or a similar solution and wiping one's putter after putting out each hole?

Nature reports that:

* COVID-19 patients can be highly infectious when they have few or no symptoms, and
* 18% to 59% of COVID-19 cases are estimated to be asymptomatic.

Covert coronavirus infections could be seeding new outbreaks (Nature, 20 March 2020)

CDC reports that all adults, not just old people, are vulnerable to hospitalization from COVID-19. Among 508 hospitalized COVID-19 patients:

* 20% were aged 20-44 years
* 18% were aged 45-54 years

Severe Outcomes Among Patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) — United States, February 12–March 16, 2020 (CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report)

Put that information together, and what logical conclusions can be drawn?

Good call, although I specifically referred to just right now. You can never be too safe limiting your exposure to KEEGAN-19 though.

Anyone in the vicinity of Jefferson Barracks park in St. Louis, this is excellent advice! There's still a **** ton of work to do on the back course if you want to get out of the house but don't want to play a round. PM me here or get in touch with the course captain for where to go/what to do.
