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

This video, from popular Villages YouTuber Gold Wingnut, provides some terrific aerial footage as well as blueprint details of Sawgrass Grove. He also takes us over the Southern Oaks golf course, the Southern Oaks bridge, and the Villages of Citrus Grove and Cason Hammock.

Here’s what else I’m reading this week:
