I live in a city of 120,000 pop east of Houston,Texas. We are under a stay in place order. No gatherings or non essential business.
If the City of San Marcos or the Gov. of Texas issues an order it will shut down the convention period. Houston is now pretty much shuttered through May.
The hosting club has zero say on this. I know this stinks but this is a new reality folks. My son supervises a valet service at a resort in San Antonio, the resort is closed. It might not reopen if this epidemic continues through the summer.
We have not peaked yet and we as a country are science ignorant. I am a retired Research Chemist/ Center Director with a specialty in nano characterization (XRD and Electron Microscopy) and I am dumbfounded on what I hear and read on the news and social media. The majority including the WH have no clue on how complex this pandemic is.
I do not mean to sound negative, but a lot of folks are not going to their jobs back when the pandemic slows, it will be a rude awaking to all.
I will be there if the conditions improve and look forward to meeting everyone.
Isolate and take care , most cases 80% recover with no ICU etc. Stay positive.
I will be happy to discus some of the science through PM if anyone wants, no political rants are helpful, just the science please.
