To be fair there are high risk activities and low risk activities. Staying home alone is nearly no-risk.
But I'm not going to fault people for engaging in low risk activities. For instance, assuming the pool is regularly cleaned and uses appropriate pool chemicals, doing water exercises at a distance from one another, particularly if the pool is outdoors, is likely low risk. The pool chemicals will destroy the virus and if it's outdoors then it won't last long in the air due to sun and wind. In my opinion, going grocery shopping is one of the highest risk activities someone can do. And a lot of people are doing that! The indoor air will keep the virus viable longer than outdoor air. Plus there are a lot more people at the stores adding germs all the time. Get delivery or do drive-up pick-up for groceries instead.
Please understand that this virus LINGERS IN THE AIR. It lingers longer in indoor air than outdoor air. And it spreads farther with a cough or sneeze but it appears to come from just regular breathing too. Cleaning surfaces and staying 6 feet apart is not enough, particularly indoors. Wear a mask if you go to indoor public places like a grocery store.
I thought Costco did a good job of keeping people apart and definitely a good job in the cleaning. Our carts were disinfected , the gas pump was disinfected and other high traffic areas were constantly cleaned.
