People Rush to Reopened Beaches in Republican Area of Florida

Hordes of people rushed to reopened beaches in the heavily Republican area of Jacksonville, Florida.

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry made the ludicrous claim that beach recreation activities to were “essential.”

CNN reports the bizarre scene that took place:

The scene at Jacksonville Beach wasn’t one of caution in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. Crowds cheered and flooded the beach when police took the barriers down. People were seen swimming, biking, surfing, running and fishing.Social distancing seemed to be the last thing on anyone’s mind Friday.

Some residents told CNN not being able to go to the beach was “torture.” People were out with their towels, coolers and sunbathing. There were very few masks.
