Capta, it’s probably helpful to disclose to the new member that you feel particularly vulnerable to the virus. They don’t know you’re well into retirement age.Probably going to have to wait out the virus before you can get started. And even then things may not go back to where they were.

We were out at anchor here all weekend. Not much to do ashore. Sailed during the day, BBQ at night. I suspect things are going to get closer to normal, faster than some think. It may be too fast, but that’s a different point.
I saw a guy getting docking lessons on his big center console. Owner and instructor, both wearing masks. However, I also saw many on the water without masks and too many to be in the same household. Restrictions have been slowly lifting here, to allow up to 15 people congregating, as of today.
It would help if you mentioned where you are located. In many areas there are crew wanted lists that you can sign onto, or sailing 'clubs' that provide the opportunity to take boats out sailing. There are lots of us who routinely take people sailing and/or mentor them through the process of learning to sail or operate a boat.Hi. I am a new sailor. What are some good ways to get more experience to add time and distance to my log book?
