Just curious. I have been noticing that the COVID numbers in the county had been going down for about two weeks and now they are heading back up.

On Saturday, I was walking my dog at Azalea Park and the one ball field was filled with kids doing tryouts for baseball. These kids, yes, were outside, but they were up against the fences close enough to kiss one another, yelling their heads off to encourage the batters and fielders while not a one, nor any of the adults in charge, wore masks. I'm glad that kids are still enthused to get out and play ball, but where is the common sense that will keep them, their siblings, parents, grandparents, friends and future teammates safe from COVID and able to play.

Let's not bring our community to its knees. I'd like to be out there myself watching them play ball, but right now, even though I was wearing a mask, I would not feel safe in a crowd who didn't wear a mask to protect themselves and others.

It certainly doesn't' seem like a well thought out plan for our kids or our community.
