WHeRE dOEs RON deSANTis go tO get His aPolOGy?

Erika Crisp has been short of breath for several days and has tested positive for COVID-19.

So have more than a dozen of her friends.

The one thing they all had in common: a night out at Lynch’s Irish Pub on June 6 in Jacksonville Beach.


Crisp said she and her friends had been careful with social distancing and had stayed indoors for months “doing everything the right way.”

“And then the first night we go out, Murphy’s Law, I guess,” Crisp said. “The only thing we have in common is that one night at that one bar.”

Crisp said she regrets going out to celebrate after months of quarantining.

“I think we were careless and we went out into a public place when we should not have. And we were not wearing masks. I think we had a whole ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ mentality. The state opens back up and said everybody was fine, so we took advantage of that,” Crisp said.

I don’t think there’s a lot of point of attacking people like Crisp — making short-sighted decisions you regret in retrospect is human. If the bars are open some people are going to go. The real issue here is the massive failure of leadership that has allowed bars to open when it’s not remotely safe to do so. It’s genuinely infuriating.
