  1. Oh My! look how it crossed the Bay Bridge to the Eastern Shore. Could it have been all those parents treating the situation like a snow day or an extended spring break to enjoy at the beach? The retirees and older folks living in these sleepy little farm and beach towns that have very little business late fall-early spring are now hopping with families that are raiding the grocery stores and flooding into the few open businesses. This is how germs/disease spread, folks! Stay home out of respect for other people. My guess is that by next week there will be many more cases reported from the shore area with the older population most affected…..and not many health care facilities in that area.
