Restaurants, Stores Apparent Problems. Concerned Readers Document Social Distance Violations And Unmasked Across Area.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — A UPS Store, a jewelry store and a restaurant. All are scenes, according to readers, of people gathering unmasked — potentially taking part in the continued unfettered spread of COVID-19 in the area.

The first photo is a customer at the UPS store in the Reserve Shopping Center. According to our tipster, the man — who apparently didn’t think his nose needed to be covered — was right in the face of the UPS worker.

At Diamonds By Raymond Lee in Boca Raton, the outside sales center apparently led people to believe that masks could be worn around a neck — if at all. A reader sent this to us and reports that it was documented today, Sunday, December 6th. We remind our readers: there’s no need to wear a diamond if you’re dead.

And at Aloha Restaurant on Federal Highway in Boca Raton, diners are seen crowding the restaurant with little — or no — social distancing. There are also no masks visible on people who are not actively engaged in eating. A reader contacting us expressed concern. The photo certainly suggests that concern is valid.
