Thank You for Caring!Notes around Clearwater Beach and Sand Key This past Sunday was like an old time drive-in. You remember when cars used to go to a drive-in restaurant and cruise the parking lot? Everyone shined up their cars, sported their latest fashions and spent the evening around and around the lot – maybe hoping to meet someone. This was about the scene on Clearwater Beach this weekend. People wanting to get out – do anything, but nothing is open. So you drive around the beach just hoping some normalcy returns soon! Here is a LIVE view of Clearwater Beach.

Tests Cause Spikes!
One problem across the country deciphering the numbers is the occasional spikes in new cases. There is a relationship to new cases and expanding test availability. Obviously, if you have mass testing, then you will find people with the disease that have no symptoms. That is good so they can be isolated, but the numbers make it appear the trend is not declining.
