Drive through downtown on any given night and you’ll see why. Lots of people in line to enter the bars packed close with no masks and not even a hint of social distancing. I’m not saying close the bars but use some freaking sense people! Keep 6 feet distance in line and if you aren’t eating or drinking, wear your mask!
