OK...I wanted to stay as much out of this as I can, and am going to do my best to continue to do so, but a couple of things came up that I can't help but comment on.

Wisconsin's "safer at home order" - this is verbatim from the order as written. This is my home state too. (source: https://milwaukeerecord.com/city-lif...-safe-at-home/)

Quote:
c. Outdoor activity. To engage in outdoor activity, including visiting public and state parks, provided individuals comply with Social Distancing Requirements as defined below. Such activities include, by way of example and without limitation, walking, biking, hiking, or running. Individuals may not engage in team or contact sports such as by way of example and without limitation, basketball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, or football, as these activities do not comply with Social Distancing Requirements. Playgrounds are closed.
Disc golf, obviously, differs so materially from the team sport Ultimate Frisbee, that it should go without saying, but I'll mention it anyway.

Regarding the 17 day transmission thing - this is almost certain to be a gross over-exaggeration, at least as far as actual infection potential goes. Further reading here: https://newatlas.com/health-wellbein...-transmission/. And yes, I've done my own independent research as to how legit a source NewAtlas is - clearly I am comfortable sharing their work.

Look, I am not going to tell anyone else how they should manage the risks. I've already decided my course of action here. But, let's be careful with the more sensationalized bits of news we're hearing, OK?

I just played 18 at the closest course to me. Very few people there and I accidentally made one long putt all others were C1 pick ups.

I could boost my rating by 80 points, doing that.

Post apocalypse disc golf will be laying up into a 5-meter diameter circle (C.5) to hole out, then just add one stroke.

And it's cold as a mofo down there right now in March, not even close to being a temperature controlled cruise ship cabin. Yet NYC is essentially the US epicenter of the virus, and most experts think a large portion of the virus has spread in their transit systems in air and on surfaces, in which a good portion of that time occurs outside the actual subway.
I would venture a guess that the vast portion of NYC transmission is aerosol transmission, not surface. Crowded subways cars and platforms are the real source. Even given the 17 day information, in conflict to earlier studies, there is no information on how easily the virus is transferred by touch. Touch also requires a couple of mechanisms of transfer. I doubt subway riders are licking benches, so the virus must be transferred to the bench, to the hands of a host, then from hands to mouth/nose/eyes. Again, no solid info of how well any of those transfers work. We do have data on how the virus moves in aerosol from person to person.
Again, just me thinking out loud.

All those tests on surfaces are inside, no test that I have heard of has been done on outside surfaces. Fluid evaporates, I would think that makes a difference.
Yeah....even my musing are very far from science and should not be used to help make a decision.

The best decision is to use as much caution as possible, by staying inside period.

Yes, the absolute right choice is scientifically proven. I understand that some see it as overkill or a great violation of individual liberties. As has been argued on my state’s DG page, to fall in line with recommendations (that fall short of official orders) to not play or to stay inside is to betray one’s backbone.

I just can’t see why contributing to the extent one can to a collective good, public health, is so controversial.

People subconsciously touch their face all the time. I believe there are studies that show the average person touches their face 20 times per hour.
