As Florida Near 18,000 COVID-19 Deaths, Help Document The People, Places and Things That Are Leading To Spread
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We’re seeing it in Boca Raton. We’re seeing it in Delray Beach. We’re seeing it in Boynton Beach. Groups. Visitors. People who don’t live here coming here for Thanksgiving, despite the CDC saying it’s a horrible idea. We’re being tipped off by homeowners and security guards in communities throughout the area that some families are blatantly disregarding guidance — and community rules — inviting guests into country clubs and gated communities where they are prohibited.
Welcome to Thanksgiving week 2020 — South Florida style — where everyone has an exception.
BocaNewsNow.com readers are responsible for businesses being cited and fined over the past several months through their photos and tips. We’re asking you, our readers, to continue to send photos and videos when you see things that are egregiously problematic. A photo of one person not wearing a mask? Let it go. A photo of a group of people at a bar on Atlantic Avenue, or in Mizner Park, or anywhere in South Palm Beach County? Send it. Do you see 15 cars in front of a house where there are normally two? Send it. Are you on a plane where someone refuses to wear a mask? Document it and send it.
Rules for the road: don’t confront anyone. Don’t trespass. As a general policy, if you can see it with your own eyes from a public location, you can photograph it or capture it on video. Please send us as much information as you can so we can find the facts behind the photo. And never, ever photograph the inner workings of a medical facility, unless you happen to work there and see things that we need to see due to the danger they cause. We are unaware of any issue at any medical facility in the area.
Remember: you are sending us material as a reader. BocaNewsNow.com does not pay for tips. But your information may help save someone’s life if it helps curtail a super-spreader event.
As the holiday week gets underway, at least 938,414 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Florida. 17,991 people have died. The Palm Beach County School COVID-19 count is on its way to 1000. If you are reading this in a news app, please use this link to access our news tip form.
