mother and meeting

The situation of coronavirus pandemic is getting worse, here we don't have legal regulation but many people are now avoiding the meeting and going out.
Mother has had the plan to join the meeting of her Haiku poem club today, I didn't like it.
It's the monthly event of the club, first the members stroll around some park and make the poems, then gather in a room to talk about them. Strolling around the park is safe enough, the weather is good and walking outdoor is good after long staying-home days, I know. But the second half of the meeting is indoor, most of the members are old people, she need to take the local train and bus to go to the park, and she is over 80 and has higher risk than other. So I had told my mother indirectly that she should not go for days. But the meeting means a lot for her, she was going to go there. Yesterday evening, after some rather ugly argument she decided not to go.
It's a big relief to me, but I know it's a big disappointment for her. Even staying at home I have job to do for 5 days a week, exchanging e-mails and sometimes online meeting. But mother has almost nothing to do without regular housework, now it's not a good time to do something in the garden, being old she is not good at doing something online or her smartphone. She spends most of time reading or watching TV program, but primary she is an active person and likes meeting the friends, so must feel much stress in the current just-stay-home situation.
She is quite reasonable, especially when considering her age. But I feel sorry for her... still what can I do??? Sigh...

Meanwhile, the cats were happy with sunshine...
