Florida Beach-Goers Seem To Have Missed The Whole “Social Distancing” Thing

This time of year is spring break for many, and there are a lot of people who are refusing to cancel their spring break plans in the midst of COVID-19.

Recently, a news station got aerial view of Clearwater Beach in Florida and the famous spring break destination looked no different than an average sunny day.

As COVID-19 spreads in the United States, health professionals are stressing “social distancing,” or keeping yourself away from people and crowded places to help slow down the virus.

The video and beach images went viral and people couldn’t believe how lackadaisical others were being toward the pandemic.

One Twitter user made clear the visitors were spring breakers and NOT Floridians.

ABC Action News reporter Sarah Hollenbeck shared images of the crowds on Twitter.
