I sincerely hope that they are closing airfields because they have no users. There is no sane reason for GA pilots to be leaving their homes if they're not flying urgent medical missions.
I have to take exception to your statement.
Why should GA pilots not leave their homes ???
Have the government banned all enjoyment whilst I’ve been asleep?
If I get into my car, drive to an airfield, climb into a (my) plane, fly around for a while (just enjoying the joy of flight), then get back into my car and drive home - without meeting or touching another soul - what is wrong with that?
Or in your world should we all be banned from going for a walk, a horse ride, a bike / motorbike ride, or even a drive in the country?
Get real - please.
There are enough nimby’s trying to stop our hobby without you supporting them.
