No, and I would only expect events be cancelled if the virus hits in our county in the Florida Keys.
We are a condominium campground and had a board/general meeting today and not a thing was brought up about it.

Die of what? Old age?
Old age isn't a statistical category, so when a centenarian passes on some disease or condition gets credit. Yet another reason why many statistics must be viewed with a healthy skepticism.

The news media has done a great job blowing this up.

Quite a few are leaving the RGV earlier than planned. Warm weather in the Midwest is one reason. Wanting to be near family and family doctors is another. Nobody wants to be sick 2,000 miles from home. Ask the folks on the cruise ships.

And the - oh it's nothing attitude is exactly what will keep it spreading around. It may not affect many people any more than the flu would, but for those who do get the serious lung involvement, I bet they will wish they had stayed home. And who gets it most ? Seniors and people with other illnesses and compromised immunity systems. How many at the snowbird parks are either a senior - have another illness, and have compromised immunity systems? Most will meet 1 of those 3 criteria.

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


Two months ago, our dances were drawing 80-100 paying customers. Tonight, we had about half that for the same band and it was free.

One more thing to worry about. Last night we had 200+ in our rec center to see a play put on by residents - packed hall and no one seemed overly concerned.

Take standard health precautions are always the best.

The park did send out an information bulletin but no events cancelled yet. I'm avoiding Main Street during Bike Week because you're in very close contact with other filthy bikers. Washing my hands a lot whenever I go out.

It's a virus. You can't build a fence or threaten it with a gun to keep it away. For the vast majority of people the symptoms are identical to a cold or the flu. People who have a cough or the sniffles are going to be out and about. That is just a fact. Unless you are willing to sequester yourself from all human contact until it either runs its course or a vaccine is perfected you will run the risk of becoming infected. That will likely not happen for a year or more. I don't have enough years left to toss one of them away living personally imposed isolation trying to avoid an illness that isn't that severe to the vast majority.
