7. Public pools

Public pools in Ohio, Georgia and South Carolina are now open, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should dive in head first. While it’s thought that chlorine, a chemical element found in pools can kill the coronavirus, “you have to assume that people [at the pool] are infected,” Roberta Lavin, a professor of medicine at the University of Tennessee’s College of Nursing, told U.S. Masters Swimming.

She also added that “anything they touch would be contaminated. It would be hard to get in and out of the pool without touching anything or interacting with another person.” The University of Chicago’s chief epidemiologist Emily Landon, MD, told The Chicago Tribune, “I suspect that pools are going to be one of the last places that are going to be allowed to be open.”

We know that reopening swimming pools include reduced capacity and social distancing in the water, but imagine that your kid throws the beach ball to a strange person. What happens next?! It’s better to stay at home in order to prevent exposure to the virus.

  1. I have talked to Hundreds of people who also are very confused about the Hot-Spots of catching Covid-19. I think by statistics of people catching it and people dying from it they don’t warrant shut downs of our entire societies establishments. Yes, this is a serious pandemic but wouldn’t it be more wise to educate the elderly who are at the highest risk and their families of proper precautions. I myself am a senior and choose not to go out in public as a precautionary measure not to catch the disease at this time. If and when I do go out in Public, I wear a mask and stay in open areas. But when I read about 7 ways most common to transmitting the virus…then how is it we don’t have millions more people catching this virus. I understand that some people are asymptomatic and some just get slightly ill. Again… do we shut down the entire country…Or do we educate them and our seniors and people with compromised immune systems. Still is very frustrating for many Americans trying to understand this disease from the information we receive from our media outlets

  2. I was going to ask about bowling alleys and see it is #3 on the list. Our league is due to begin its season on 10-14. I was hesitating to begin as I was told “not necessary to wear masks” and now I really won’t bowl. Thank you for listing these places. Stay safe and Be Smart.
