I leave in 2 weeks for my Bandon Dunes trip and just got the following letter. Thought I would share for those heading there this year. Glad to see them being proactive in dealing with the issue.

Wear your golf glove.

Just returned Thursday from the resort. Tuesday morning we woke to find this letter tucked in to our doors. It announces that all food and beverage for the resort would be takeout only. The letter

I received the same letter. Because four breakfast buffets and three dinner buffets are included in our package (we have a very large group), I asked how they were going to manage the buffets. Since during the course of a regular buffet, dozens of people handle the same serving utensils. I will be interested to see how they are going to handle that.

Considering there are 100,000-10,000,000 viral particles per milliliter of sputum of infected persons (whether they show symptoms or not), it is easy to see how aerosolization during a sneeze or cough can contaminate a lot of nearby people/surfaces. Interesting that the viral load level for release of infected individuals must fall below 100,000 viral particles per ml (still high by my numerical standards ). It is easy to see how this spreads exponentially and it won't be mitigated until everyone takes it seriously. Unaffected individuals can still act as carriers. That means a sharp change in everyone's habits of congregating in groups, etc. The hope within healthcare is to 'flatten the curve' (of outbreak patients) because it can easily overcome healthcare providers and then there's no one left to help. So reducing transmission can reduce maximum numbers until such time mitigation efforts can 'catch up' to the disease (testing to find out what levels are really like; vaccine development?). For instance, there was a report where one infected individual treated on the west coast resulted in quarantine of 20 healthcare nurses. Healthcare providers can sustain losses at that rate. [That ends my 'public service announcement' for the day.]

Just returned Thursday from the resort. Tuesday morning we woke to find this letter tucked in to our doors. It announces that all food and beverage for the resort would be takeout only. The letter mentions limited menus, but I was able to order anything from each of the onsite restaurants. Thursday morning another letter was handed out, containing voucher cards for free lunches.


All tables and chairs (including outside seating and lobby couches) had been removed, though we did eat our lunch at Pacific on the deck on Wednesday.
