Memorial Day weekend draws crowds and triggers warnings

Source: AP

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Memorial Day weekend marking the unofficial start of summer in the U.S. meant big crowds at beaches and warnings from authorities Sunday about people disregarding the coronavirus social-distancing rules and risking a resurgence of the scourge that has killed nearly 100,000 Americans.

Meanwhile, the White House announced a ban on travel to the U.S. from Brazil, which has been hard hit by the pandemic.

Sheriff’s deputies and beach patrols tried to make sure people kept their distance from others as they soaked up the rays on the sand and at parks and other recreation sites around the country.

In the Tampa area along Florida’s Gulf Coast, the crowds were so big that authorities took the extraordinary step of closing parking lots because they were full.

2. Watch out...

Watch out for the super spreader vector events. They may be a subset of the death cults.

Well, for some reason, moth's like candles though the fascination leads to a terminal event. OH! Look at that light over there!

3. Disappointed in Tampa St. Pete VERY Democratic city and area.

I hope the news is over exaggerated about what went on there.
