Yesterday I received an email from our neighborhood HOA which contained a waiver that anyone using the pool or the clubhouse must sign. They are also supposedly working on some kind of disclaimer to state that the HOA bears no responsibility for anyone who gets sick. They paid an attorney to create these documents. Wouldn’t have been easier, less expensive and no less effective to just say, “Hey look, y’all know about this virus thing, right? It’s up to you to not do stupid stuff and your own responsibility for anything that happens if you do. Got it? Good.”
I was reminded of the above photo from our visit to Nova Scotia in 2013. A simple warning seemed sufficient for the people there. Canadians aren’t that much smarter than we are, are they? Maybe they are.
