In March of this year, the CGA formed a Coronavirus Taskforce to address the golf-specific challenges that COVID-19 has presented to the golf community. Fortunately for the CGA, Boulder Community Health’s Dr. Owen Ellis volunteered to serve on this committee and share his expertise. Dr. Ellis offered to address some of the frequently asked questions and share them here so other golfers could benefit from this information.
