Nice day brought people out

TVA reports on how a nice Saturday brought people out, and I can attest to how there were so many people in Jarry Park that after walking down through the park (and looking at the dry crater of the sad empty pond) I thought it wiser to walk home through the streets instead, and found a lot of people out socializing, some too close if talking to people with whom they’re not cohabiting.

I suspect the lockdown will gradually give way as people simply find themselves outdoors over time, interacting. Even if the adults maintain distance, it’s impossible to enforce it on all the little kids if they see their friends around outside. And then we’ll have to take the consequences.

There was no police presence in the park, by the way, no loudspeakers reminding us of the rules.
