I believe all are able to exercise stupidity be it country or city. I don't understand the logic to drive three counties away to recreate in a time of crisis and flood small towns with people and Corona. The cases are in the populous areas by in large. We have one in my county. From Seattle I'm told. King has thousands both known and unknown. I'm sure we have plenty now as I don't expect the average Joe at Starbucks to be remotely qualified to keep sterile. Food borne illness and an airborne pathogen are two different animals.This.
Last weekend, before the official stay at home order, I (with proper social distancing) fished a number of Puget Sound beaches which normally have only a handful, if any, people on them. There were literal crowds of families and sportsmen, some obviously not household groups, gathering to chat in the parking lot, etc. The crowds at Rattlesnake on a weekday were also jaw dropping, as viewed from my single kayak. Shocking, but not surprising for a Puget Sound population whose kids were home and for whom normal indoor, outside-the-home activities had already been limited.
For those of you blaming "citiots" for that and smugly believing you would not see the same in E WA if the gov had not shut down trailheads and fishing, I refer you to the Mar 1st opening day posts of crowds and "nice to have met you's" at popular lakes and the pics of parking lots full of trailers. (Before E WA was much affected, and all very well in normal times!) Now that the whole state is SAH, if open, every day would look like that. If they closed only the popular places, you would soon find your usual "secret" lakes inundated.
It would be great if we could rely on everyone to behave responsibly, but we can't, period. That's why government and religions exist.
Please think bigger than yourself, if just for the duration of this crisis; be responsible, be kind, be safe.
