REOPENING: Smiles can deceive

| May 6, 2020 1:00 AM

I saw photos of downtown reopening Friday. Everyone looked very happy, as they were standing perhaps two/three feet apart, none wearing masks.

This is a recipe for repeating what we have just been through. Just one infectious person in any such group will begin the exponential growth in cases again.

We intend (and have been) supporting local businesses however possible, but what we observed downtown will lead to more infections … and ultimately deaths.
