Default beaches FL and TX

Do you think they will get closed again because of the spike in cases?

If people don't quit piling up in groups I wouldn't doubt it. If they used common sense then maybe it could be avoided but that is a thing of the past.

Looks like a few more South Florida beaches are closing next week in addition to Miami Dade county. Palm Beach, Broward, and Monroe counties are also closing for the 4th of July weekend. At least itís temporary for now. I was looking forward to fresh drops lol

I have been noticing that the summer fresh drop rate is way down as is the amount of beach goers for this time of year. And with our relatively lull summer weather patterns its very difficult to find any openings.

That's the problem we had here in Texas. There were no shortages of people at the beach and they weren't paying any attention to distancing.

Aside from closing beaches what other mandatory things are they putting in to play?

Nothing except the bars right now. Our paper says there are spikes.... BUT it appears the no. are down for hospital and deaths. People arenít doing bad here I donít think keeping 6í away.

What we arenít seeing is people other than locals.... with a few scattered from up North. Will we see the Canadians this year? Guys are really working the few drops out there and even the trash isnít bad. Sooo come winter itís going to be slim Pickens I think.

Texas just closed the bars again but they are still letting restaurants open at 50% occupancy. We'll see how long that lasts.

I went to a bar tonite that had been take out only. There were 9 people around the bar and 8 people at the tables in the same room with no masks . I donít know if they were following the latest directives or not . I just know I didnít feel safe. We may just be extincting ourselves.
