    DeSantis extends order preventing Floridians from being penalized over mask violations

    I am home for the holiday in Pensacola, 5 of us for Thanksgiving, and yet I go to Publix as many others are doing and lo and behold people everywhere not wearing masks. What gives? This is what i see when I cross the river going to Indiana and surely my fellow Floridians know better than Indiana I thought. Wrong again.

    Then I see this news thing. The sad thing is seeing these men, women and kids acting as if they are above the virus. Nobody should be surprised at the increased infections in Florida with this happening and I came home for this?

    Entitled selfish pricks. American exceptionalism.

    Lack of mask wearing, social distancing, and lack of rapid & widespread testing & contact tracing problems are driving this surge.

    It's not just Floridians, unfortunately. It's around the country. Americans aren't good at looking out for the collective good.

    @BigCypressGator1981 said it better :D

    Well even here among the Gator Country greats, posters have written the following in recent months . . .
    Yep - we've got some real Mensa candidates on board.

    My mother in law lives in Ocala, and every time a certain other poster who lives in Ocala makes a post about the virus it just gives me a lump in my throat. I think at least two of the posts you listed come from the aforementioned poster.

    You are correct. There's a treasure trove of genius level material there. Sometime near the end of the year I will share the August - November covid gems. "Ocala" will be prominently represented ;).

    "It was a terrible virus" was one of the most inane and callous things written on these forums and that's saying a lot.

    Same here ... I went to a local bike shop to buy a fairly expensive bike, after talking to them on the phone about it. This is a county with a local mask ordinance. They have a sign on their door saying "masks optional". I went inside, there are maybe 10 or 12 people in the store, all wearing masks except the two idiots who work there. At that point I decided these clowns don't give a crap about their customers and left. They have my name and number, after I had originally told them I'd stop in and put down a deposit ... I'm hoping they call ... so I can tell them I ordered from a bike shop 25 miles away, and why it was worth the drive.

    You get arrested here. And our kids will be interviewed on Monday at school, to see who was there? And how many? For the holidays... and parents employers will be contacted.

    Florida's Governor is a coward who is unwilling to break from Trump. It's unsurprising that the lack of leadership from the top trickles down.

    Free country. Get over it. The people elected Biden? Well, the people elected DeSantis too and elections have consequences. If you truly feel violated, feel free to move to China.

    Which, ironically, would be safer currently.

    It's weird, despite all the mask mandates and people wearing masks at unprecedented levels Covid is spiking. Almost everyone I know who has gotten Covid wears masks religiously. Yet after being told by the liberal media (with no scientific data referenced) that if they wore a mask they would be safe they got it anyway. Mask up! No questions allowed.

    I haven't been to Publix in months, since I'm having my groceries delivered. But I was under the impression that masks are required in Publix and other supermarkets. Not so? People not wearing them are just allowed to stay (for fear of staff getting beaten up or shot)?
