    Cases increasing by the thousands daily, insufficient testing, and mixed messages from our leadership. Florida the state has embodied Florida the man.

    People need to eat, they don't need to go to the beach.

    Not arguing that they do. Some may need marijuana dispensaries for their medication, the same as pharmacies. Most of these measures stemmed from the population not understanding distancing methods. We only have ourselves to blame.

    What are you going to do differently to "live your life" ? After all surfing porn from your computer at home is not (I assume) impacted by Coronavirus social distancing mandates.

    Be gentle...were you not recently posting on this board asking for and receiving prayers for your ill Daughter that was suffering greatly from the virus?
    I am pleased that she has recovered. How quickly we forget.

    You're employing the "they jumped off a bridge, so I should be able to also" argument.

    Sunlight is a great disinfectant, if people use the beach for walking, exercise, and maintain the social distancing it should be fine.

    While ultraviolet rays are not so great for your skin, it turns out that they are good disinfectants -- they kill bacteria. ... People leave the bottles in the sun, and it actually helps to reduce bacteria in the water. See, for example, Sun and water: an overview of solar water treatment devices.
