Zmrhal: Where were masks, distance in board photo?

Posted 8/6/20

On the front page of the July 15, 2020 Independent was a picture of a June 25 Recreation Centers of Sun City board meeting under the caption of leadership. I looked and looked and looked some more but did not see any!

Zmrhal: Where were masks, distance in board photo?

On the front page of the July 15, 2020 Independent was a picture of a June 25 Recreation Centers of Sun City board meeting under the caption of leadership. I looked and looked and looked some more but did not see any!

These are our “leaders?” These are the same folks that formulate policies for Sun City West pandemic safety requirements regarding COVID-19. Yet, no one is wearing a mask and certainly they are not adhering to the “social distancing” policy either! Yes, I know the picture was taken June 25. So what? Masks and social distancing were in effect way long before this picture and the meeting took place.

Everyone needs to always be 100% mindful of the virus that is all around us.

I guess this is just another case of do as I say, not as I do! Why is it some people apparently feel privileged and blatantly refuse to do what is right?

What is the matter with these people? I’m guessing they are intelligent beings but show their lack of intelligence in this meeting as evident with this picture. Time for them to get their act in gear and adhere to what they are proposing for the rest of the residents in Sun City West. If everyone does not adhere to the pandemic requirements and policies at all times, then we will never lick the virus.

Editor’s Note: A cutline for a photo in the Sun City West Independent July 15, 2020 indicated the file photo was taken at the Recreation Centers of Sun City West June 25 annual meeting. The file photo was, in fact, from a March 3 RCSCW Budget and Finance Committee meeting.
