Never thought about this before but when the first case of Corona Virus shows up in the Atlanta area I am done with league bowling for a while. I may have to change my saying posted in my profile "Let me bowl or let me die"

Try not to panic. Less than 2% of the population is vulnerable and only .04% who get it, die from it. Last I heard, there were 60 people in America with it. That's 60 out of 333 million. Each time you drive your car your chances of dying are significantly greater. This isn't the black plague. If you're not old or have a compromised respiratory system, you're not at risk.

No panic. Just throwing it out there. My wife is the high risk category and I would not want to bring it home to her.

Looking at worst case scenarios of community spread in my area. There would be no preventing contracting the virus without taking extreme measures. A bowling center would be like a movie theater and with the virus lasting 24 hours after it contacts a surface you don't even have to be near an infected person to get it.

I hope for the best possible outcome and the virus can be contained no additional spread happens but I don't think we have seen the worst yet.

Well with all that is going I decided to take the next 2 weeks off bowling. Cases of Coronavirus have surfaced in my area. I will re-evaluate wether to continue in a couple of weeks.

NJ's 8:00 PM curfew has our leagues shut down. Our center is still open, but others have decided to close. I have no plans to go until things get better.

What state are you in? I'm in CA but bowling isn't considered essential, so all bowling centers are closed. We were supposed to start again April 7th, but I'm certain we're done for the year.

With San Diego, LA and San Francisco all increasing in new cases, the rest of the state, even in sparsely populated areas, has to follow the same rules. Another reason to break this state up :-)

Georgia. Bowling Center is suppose to reopen April 1. But I don't see it happening. I agree with you about being done for the year.


The Governor issued an executive order enforcing a closure of all bars and nightclubs in the state. Additionally, a ban on public gatherings of 10 people or more was also issued. These actions will go into effect on 12 p.m. Tuesday, and are set to end at 12 p.m. on April 6.

Like everyone else, I've received confusing info. Our local center wasn't forced to shut down for bowling, but couldn't serve food or liquor. All the leagues bailed and revenues from open bowling alone wasn't enough. The speculation is that our center won't be reopening under the current owner. I think Bowlmor made him an offer and he's considering his options.
