“Unreal Scene” As Florida Logs 30,000 New COVID-19 Cases.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We’re not naming names and we’re not identifying the community, but if you want to know why COVID-19 is spreading at a stunning rate in Palm Beach County, look no further than a Boca Raton-area community on Saturday.
That community, trying to do something nice for homeowners, invited food trucks in for a few hours on Saturday afternoon. The community is gated. This was not a public event. There was really just one rule: wear your mask. But, according to emails received and confirmed by BocaNewsNow.com, many of the homeowners and their guests were so selfish, so disgusting, that they closely congregated around the food truck without masks. Parents left unmasked kids unattended. Again, selfish and disgusting.

The situation was so uncomfortable for those involved that many people hoping to enjoy a food truck experience left the area, scared by what they saw.
The community’s management wasted no time. Its Board transmitted a strongly worded, well written email to all homeowners Saturday afternoon. BocaNewsNow.com reviewed the communication. The theme: grow up and respect your neighbor, especially now. It’s an appropriate message that should echo throughout all of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County. As if making the Board’s point, some homeowners actually went online to post outrage about the message.
We are not publishing photos of the violators at this time. In this matter, we’ll let a private community deal with its issue internally. We suspect many of the violators will be outed on social media.
But outside of gated communities, the stories BocaNewsNow.com continues to hear are all similar. Bars, restaurants and clubs packed with mask violators. We’ve been tipped to stories about significant violations over the past several days. For those public locations, we’ll run photos. Keep sending them. Use the form below.

Florida logged more than 30,000 new COVID-19 cases on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. More than 200 people died. People are getting sick and dying because others are being selfish. And disgusting.
