  1. Our Governments, state, local and federal are not conveying a consistent message about what residents should do about the virus. The CDC says we should not congregate in groups of more than 10, Dr. Fauci says don’t go to restaurants, the Governor of New York closes all restaurants and bars. Yet, our governor provides no guidance and Miami-Dade government sends an opposite message by allowing restaurants and bars to stay open until 11:00 implying that it is OK to go to restaurants and bars until 11:00. Which is it; should we follow CDC and Dr. Fauci’s advice and refrain from frequenting restaurants and bars or that of our state and local officials who indicate there is no danger to frequent restaurants and bars as long as you leave by the bewitching hour – 11:00 P.M.

  2. Incredible.
