Indoor Golf During This COVID-19 Thing

There is a very nice Indoor Golf Facility not too far from where I live. My game NEEDS a lot of work right now. That's especially true for my full swing. I have the funds to get a limited membership allowing me Trackman or GCQuad time. One would think that's a no brainer. Work on your game all winter at the indoor golf place, right?

What do you all think? 
Is that a safe choice during this COVID thing? 
The county in which my wife works just went to purple. That's the highest rating our state has. It's the first county in the state to do so. My wife works remote and has been doing so since March. But it's got me thinking; Am I being responsible by going and working on my golf game INDOORS an hour or two per week just to get time on the Trackman?

Or is that not a smart choice?

I'm curious to hear others opinions.

I think it depends on how many people are there, the precautions the indoor sim is taking, etc. If it's just one or two simulators, and only one person per simulator, that seems okay to me. If there are 10 simulators and 4 people per simulator, that's different.

I'm not sure what purple represents on the scale but my "opinion" is that I personally wouldn't do it, at this time. I've been doing monitored cardio rehab at the local hospital for the last couple of months but have just put my sessions on hold for now due to the very high number of cases recently in the county we live in. All indoor activities away from home are a no go for us until things get better. Of course, we're old and at definite risk - your case may be and probably is different.

A local golf course put in 3 simulators recently.   I bought a winter membership to use them.   Since the latest "shelter in place" order in Michigan they are limiting use to 10 people total for the 3 simulators.   There is no food or beverages.    Yesterday I reserved one for two hours (thought about @Vinsk for about 20 minutes) and wore a mask the entire time.   It's not ideal but it beats sitting at home watching TV.

    • Came across this video last night. Impressive.  
    • Tough week for my whoop so far ...haha. I ran off and left it yesterday morning when I left for work. And this morning, I ran off and left my charger. We had a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and some other things happened that had my mind in other places. I should have told my wife to wait a few days. Her whoop should be here today.
    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
