Exclamation Should we postpone reading 20?

In light of the current health situation in the United States, and the uncertainty of whatever regulations are planned for the immediate future, do you think it is the right decision to postpone Reading until the fall of this year?

There may be travel restrictions by air for those who were planning to fly in.

This gives us enough time to re-evaluate the situation and pick an alternate date, or at worst cancel Reading for this year.

Re: POLL: Should we postpone Reading 20?

I am close enough that I intend to show up with or without my SVX unless things get profoundly worse but I do think what is going on is going to keep many people away as paranoia is really getting to a lot of people.

Folks, this is serious business. I vote to postpone to the fall. Even churches in my area are not holding services ...... VA, MD, WV, OH and many other states have closed schools. All the universities in VA (except Liberty, of course) are online only now.
The risk is not worth it. Spring or fall. It matters not. It is all about the people and the cars, not a specific date - that was debunked when deciding April or May .....

Re: POLL: Should we postpone Reading 20?

Social distancing is key to stopping the spread of Covid-19. I suggest you postpone.

Below is a very credible, long article.

The highlights of the paper if you do not have time to read it are written below.

Peter

(1) The number of true cases at any one time during the expansion phase is far greater than the official (known) number of cases (and many are present before any cases are identified);
(2) Without effective social distancing or other measures limiting transmission, the rate of new infections grows exponentially; and
(3) Every day counts in the imposition of serious social distancing or even lockdown measures. This may take political courage but will save lives.

One other important point: In 1918, during the Spanish flu epidemic, Denver imposed social distancing rules, but relaxed them too soon and had a second higher peak as a result. And there are other important lessons from 1918 (and 2020 already too), notably the effect of timing in the introduction of restrictive measures. I hope the link below will work for you (displays well in Chrome, but the figures do not work for me in Internet Explorer). I believe it is well worth reading, even if you just look at the first few pages. The timeline graph for Wuhan with true cases in grey and known (official) cases in orange is very instructive, in particular the rapid peak and drop-of when the lockdown there was imposed. The analysis for Washington state is also sobering.

Just a tidbit of info here: The latest CDC report on the "worse case scenario is an estimated death toll from this virus is 200,000 to 1.7 Million deaths ....
Just saying .....

Re: POLL: Should we postpone Reading 20?

For those that can get to it, this article details the ways to flatten the curve.

From doing nothing, to quarantining and social distancing. The simple, excellent animations make it completely understandable.

I spent my career as an art director in educational television creating this kind of thing, which adds emphasis and provides clarity to the written word.

Visuals have more of a lasting impact than the written word sometimes.

In light of the overwhelming and unanimous vote so far on this issue— 7-0, Reading 20 has been indefinitely postponed.

Thank you for your input and responses. The safety and welfare of our members is paramount and we chose wisely to live and party another day.

Cool Re: Should we postpone reading 20?

And, don't forget the average age demographic of SVX owners probably falls in the danger zone. At least mine does - definitely!

John,

I think you should be congratulated for making a very difficult decision and I think everyone on this site should applaud you for it.
