If you;re worried about it, don;t go !! Most everyone is capable of reading and making their own decisions . No need for more hall monitors.

People can make their own decisions... and there is no way I would go to this. But... the person who goes to this... who coughs into their hand and then touches a vase. And the next person who picks up that vase. And that person scratches his eye or nose.
Every interaction is an opportunity to spread the virus. This virus is so easily spread. You can be defiant You can make your own decisions. Just like those young adults going to the beaches.

It is very sad that people flying/traveling into FL are allowed to arrive daily without mandatory quarantine of 14 days. Especially given how many people from NY/NJ and very hard hit areas that are trying to escape (and who blames them?) either own or rent here. I think a mandatory quarantine of anyone coming (especially FLYING) from one of these concentration centers should be MANDATORLY quarantined for the 14 day time frame to eliminate the potential for further spread.

I quess these people will realize there is nothing to do here and since we can't stop it the governor would have to lock down the state. I think it's totally irresponsible of these people to travel and spread this virus.

I believe the governor has a policy of self quarantine in place for those travels - but don’t know how well it’s enforced.
