I looked at the webcams on the squares last night a couple of times out of curiosity. You are mistaken if you believe "partying" by alot of Villagers is going on there. I did see 3 or 4 couples at LSL dancing with alot of distance between them. But my thought was what if hundreds of couples decided they were special and went to dance at the square?

We drove by Sumter Square around 6:30 PM last night.
Yes a few dancers on the floor well spaced.
However, all four streets around the square plus the grounds facing the lake were full of people tail gating, tables and chairs set up or just standing around....hundreds....no attention to social distancing whatsoever.

They are all contributors to TV having more confirmed cases of the virus.

Shame on all of them.......they are the reason for needing hard quarantines with enforcement.

We also drove by Spanish Springs square....almost completely vacant.

Almost zero traffic out and about.....it appears most people are staying home.

Publix and Walmart probably have more people than the squares at 6am just waiting in line on Senior Day shopping!

I look at the webcams everyday and it's looks like a ghost town out of The Twilight Zone. Once in a while you might see a cart or two, I would believe those are people picking up carryout food. In the evening you will see the line dancers, usually no more than 10 and they are spread far apart. See for yourself.

The web cams do not take in the streets around the square or the picnic areas facing the lake......which is where the gatherings occur.

I know what you're referring to, this photo was posted on Facebook yesterday. All you can say is, here are 20 morons. I believe that was lone incident and probably won't happen again. The multiple webcam link that I posted does show a much wider area of the squares if you look.

The Deputy should get on his car's speaker & tell them to maintain distance or disperse

My wife and I drove our golf cart by there yesterday and saw this gathering. I was shocked to see it. If you go over to Panera in the morning at LSL you will see many people hanging out on the chairs in front of the sales office right next to each other. These people have no consideration for their neighbors, and quite frankly, everybody in the country.

You absolutely nailed it. They’re behaving like bratty children that need to be put in time out in the corner

Going to Publix or Walmarks is ESSENTIAL, Dancing at a square is NOT....
