Last week I posted about how we as Mainers need to do our part in the Social Distancing campaign to slow down the spread of this virus, and how people were still on the beach last week acting as if we are on holiday.

Well, on Tuesday, according to News Center Maine, all York beaches have been closed as a deterrent for people not following the guidelines set by the city and by the CDC officials.

"I have made this decision in response to the Governor's Proclamation of State of Civil Emergency to Further Protect Public Health, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, and because of reports of many people congregating on the beach when the overall directive from State and Federal government officials is that people should be staying home and practicing safe social distancing."

The York Town Manager Stephen Burns told New Center Maine, on Monday.

Come on, Mainers, can we please get our stuff together, the more we do this now, the faster we can get through this and the quicker we will be out on the beach, non-social distancing.
