The frum thing to do is to listen to the rabbonim who are saying not to make these minyanim.

my neighbor usually has all Shabbos minyanim in his dining room, this week he sent a message that he is closed, someone came Shabbos morning to borrow the sefer torah, he said no with a aleph

This was my point. As Rav Uren Reich said, "be machmir on hatzalas nefashos"

A neighbor of mine made and invited friends and family. I didn't join even though I could have stayed on my own deck. This is even though I am a chiyuv. Had it just been everyone from their own yard I would have joined from my deck. The zchus for the neshama is to listen to the rabbonim.

Why not join from your deck? You won't change people anyway.

It seems that right now for some reason G-d wants us praying and learning in the home....who knows, maybe the purpose is to strengthen our families in davening and learning.

Hashem wants us to listen to the rabbonim. I will have nothing to do with a minyan made in defiance. That is not frumkeit. It is hefkerus. That my children see that I listen to what every Rov in town said to do is much more important than tfila  "btzibur".

This is besides that joining from different places is only bshaas hadchack. Once the rabbonim say not to do it then it can no longer qualify.

Staying each on their own deck is not a problem.

Now that I'm nearing the 72 hour fever-clean mark, and based on leading US consensus that one doesn't get it twice, can we open a "survivors" minyan?
What are they saying about this case?

Yes it is. You're playing with people's lives.
