I just wanna fish at the beach. I don’t see what the big deal is.
I’m not willing to risk the health of those with underlying conditions or overwhelm our healthcare system
Then dont. But your OPINION cannot be forced on others
Anyone with an underlying condition should self quarantine, ask for & get the help they need. The rest should be free to resume activities in a responsible maner
I’d be able to risk community spread which can result from opening business, beaches and parks only after I would feel comfortable going to a hospital for necessary surgery or to repair a broken arm. Using that measure, we are not ready to open public places or spaces yet.
Responsible business owners should be trusted to implement the protective measures outlined by the Caronavirus Task Force. Local government is hurting the very people them claim to be protecting.
Small business owners, their customers and the consuming public in general is being harmed in many ways by the dictates of our local government.
Unleash the people and allow them to follow the rules. Boca Raton government is not helping. The mayor and council, with one exception, think they know best….they do not…It is just the easy way out to lock things down. Real leaders do not take the easy way. Al Zucaro
Who decides who will be the sacrificial lambs (ie people with underlying conditions, medical personnel, essential workers)? I have family and friends who have underlying conditions. Should I tell them to stay home? I have family and friends who are medical personnel or essential workers. Should I ask them to risk their lives while I go out and play (thereby risking my own)? Not everyone knows if they’re a carrier or not, so saying that they’d do things responsibly is nonsense. They can’t help the spread unless they stay home and wait to ensure everyone is safe to go out.
Oh, sweetie…its not your business to decide who does what.
I am immune compromised. If I choose to go out to the beach, that is my choice. Not yours
You might be asking yourself:
How did Jason Pelish and Karen Lindholm get those cool profile images?
That’s probably worth more of your time worrying about as opposed to getting coronavirus. given the odds of this thing.

And look like one of the digital elites too!
Just look at the stats. It makes sense to open beaches and parks. The longer we stay cooped up our immune systems will not be able to fight the virus. We need to get back to work for our sanity and to save our businesses that we have been working so hard. to develop. We will use our common sense to stay healthy. We don’t deserve to be put in the penalty box..
Every day I am relieved because there will be no more school shootings.
I think that we all need to be responsible for their own self and families. If you don’t feel safe, don’t go. My nail salon is small, all techs wear masks always and the place is immaculate. The owner cleans it himself. Hair salon is equally clean, either place I would go in either. I am an educated intelligent woman that would never put myself or family in harms way.
Jason, what are your qualifications for opening and standing in your own ill-informed bully pulpit. My guess is you are either deranged or a stuck up rich kid with nothing better to do. Either way, you are a danger to yourself and society.
Joseph Mamal I am qualified by my ability to give you a voice when others won’t. I’m sorry you object.
I will consider star going out or resume business after infection is going down , every day continue going up . I am working in tracking a palm beach Broward and zip code cob19 track Cases and dead .
It’s a project day by day but this will help me as Business owner to evaluate
