Thousands of people visiting Florida’s beaches are choosing to ignore the social distancing measures put into place during the deadly coronavirus outbreak, particularly those who are on spring break trips.
Several media outlets have highlighted the fact that many students on spring break are choosing to have fun outdoors along the beach instead of staying inside as local officials have recommended.
Brady Sluder told Reuters during his trip to Miami:
If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I’m not gonna let it stop me from partying. You know, I’ve been waiting, we’ve been waiting for Miami spring break for a while, about two months we’ve had this trip planned.
