When the Covid-19 matter first exploded in the USA, and how contagious it was to be - my first thought was>

Remember when HIV exploded and the phrase "you're sleeping with everyone that person has slept with".

Can guarantee my parents would have cut off all funds, confiscated car keys, dad would have reminded me who brought me into this world could take me out and had the lawn equipment waiting for me. Was reminded many times whose dinner table I ate at, who bought the clothes and pretty much everything in my life. On the day I was able to pay for everything in my life I was free to make any decision I wanted, until then I was on a short leash and it could choke me off at anytime they felt a need.

It is irresponsible on both parties.

There are always a few who do stupid things under the influence (like some Villagers) but I’d be willing to bet MOST wouldn’t do that. So quit worrying about the future.

Was there some reason each beach couldn't decide for themselves to close?

The beaches in question are public property. They require someone in government to declare them closed, and then put law enforcers in position to enforce that declaration.

This is something the governor should have done two weeks ago, knowing that this was a pandemic, and that school systems were closing early because of it, combined with the oncoming spring break. He chose not to do that.

And now we're all paying the price for his decision.

Not really similar at all. HIV is contagious in one very specific manner only (barring blood transfusions and shared needles). It can not be transmitted through respiratory droplets or hard surfaces. COVID-19 is a whole different animal

Reading some of these comments, it occurs to me: We have truly become our parents and grandparents. I heard many of the same things 40 years ago.

It might be true that Dumb Young People grow up to be Dumb Old People?
But, too often, Smart Young People grow up to be Dumb Old people . .
I know I did !

That's the way it was then, but unless you can shovel snow and talk on your $700 iPhone forget.

The percentages indicate that these young people will not become severely ill, thus reinforcing to them that they were correct not to worry.

One would hope, however, that they'll begin to realize their actions have consequences for others if family members they infect end up having a much rougher time of it.

If you want to understand why our society is going the way it is, watch the movie Idiocracy. A bit cornball but the message is there. You can find it on the internet.

Great movie, and certainly has a kernel of truth to it

Well good for you. Now why don't you adress concerns how villagers act during this same time before the restaurants and bars were closed. I see plenty that act like children and don't listen to authority. Was that a failure of villagers parents back in the day.
