In case you have not been informed, the Rec Centers just announced that the Rec Centers will still remained closed on May 3 and they are no longer guessing at when the Rec Centers will be opened. You can get more detailed news by seeing the Rec Center's Press Release dated April 29. In it they tell us that "According to Maricopa County, people who are at least 65 and have a chronic condition account for: 43 percent of all cases in the county, 73 percent of the hospitalizations, 77 percent of the ICU admissions; and 98 percent of those who have died".

The bad news is that we have had 47 Sun City West residents diagnosed with Covid-19 as of yesterday. The prior release by the county told us that the count was between 6 and 10. Unfortunately, the worse news is that we have no news as to how these people have managed to become infected to help the rest of us avoid their mishaps.

In the end, we may have to rely on good luck to bring us all through these trying times.
