I continue to track all the latest news and updates as it relates to coronavirus in The Villages.

You can read this week’s coronavirus updates here.

The big news this week is Vice President Pence will be at Brownwood Paddock Square for a campaign rally Saturday, October 10.

No word yet on whether “the fly” will be in attendance, but hey, this is Florida.

Golf has remained open throughout the pandemic, but several covid-19 restrictions have been in place.

But The Villages Golf & Tennis Department recently announced that beginning October 12, cash will be accepted again at all locations, only 2 golf cars will be allowed per group, rakes will be replaced in the bunkers, PVC inserts will be removed from holes, flagsticks can be removed for putting, and Men’s and Ladies Day will resume October 20 and 21.

I wrote in my premium monthly newsletter last week that I wouldn’t be surprised to see some pushback and perhaps a rethinking of the 2 people per cart rule. Looks like I was right:

Town squares opened back up for nightly entertainment this week, but it sounds like there were fewer crowds (and masks) than expected.

How about a +1 in the restaurant department for Spanish Springs?

According to a Facebook post by The Villages Daily Sun, the owner’s of Lighthouse Pointe will be opening an Italian restaurant called Augustine’s 1812 House:

A personal invite…

If you’d like to hear even more from me, and connect with other like-minded people around the topic of Florida retirement (including The Villages, of course), then I’d like to extend an invitation to you to join me as a Founding Member of something new I’m starting.

Have a great week!
