    This is what happens when you open too soon- learn and stop opening up stuff too soon. This will be over when its over, not when some politician says it is.

    Any moron could have seen this coming. Bars are NOT essential, keep them closed until this is over. OC is a spreader site, people travel from all over to go there, including states where it’s much worse than here & then they drink shout loudly over the music while not wearing masks, spreading the disease.

    Living on the Eastern Shore, I’m surprised by how many New Jersey plates I’ve seen headed in the direction of OC. The more nearby states shut their beaches down, the more people are going to head to OC.
