Has your snowbird park considered cancelling group activities because of the coronavirus?

Wouldn't that be a needless knee-jerk reaction? Thousands die from the so-called regular viruses every year and activities are not curtailed, schools aren't closed, etc. We've grown very complacent with communicable diseases.

The flu is deadlier than the coronavirus and nobody is panicking about the flu like they are over coronavirus.

What difference does it make? If you are uncomfortable attending, don’t go.

Flu vs coronavirus


Actually, this is probably not true. Currently COVID-19 mortality rate appears significantly higher than flu. Flu has been widespread for many decades and infected up to possibly a billion people last year. COVID-19 is just getting started. If, and when it has infected a billion people, you will most likely see far higher death numbers than from the flu...... . Maybe in a year it will drop to regular flu levels when a vaccine and other treatments become widely available.

While we are thinking numbers approximately 6000 people die EACH DAY in this country and nary a news story.

I can't say what the management of our park may have considered, but it did sponsor an "end of season" party last night.

I would add that we snowbirder's are poster children for the demographic of those that have the worst outcome with this new coronavirus. We are almost like the senior center in Kirkland, Wa, as we have many social gatherings and dances in our ballroom each week.

We are questioning if we will be able to head back to NW Washington this summer.

We have a plan in place to leave Arizona and head to Texas and then North in 5 weeks, which we may have to abort. Chris
