Well, looks like the reopening of Florida is going great, just great today.
Ron DeSantis opened Florida's beaches, and lifted other anti-COVID-19 restrictions throughout most of the state on Friday.
Friday is also the day Daniel W. Uhlfelder, a lawyer and resident in Walton County, launched his “Grim Reaper Beach Tour” of the state's beaches.
Here he is above, being interviewed on WMBB News 13.
Uhlfelder has been dressing up as The Grim Reaper in a hilariously shitty costume for a while now, and hanging out on beaches (social distancing!) to remind people that this shit is real.
He says he is doing this to draw attention to how dangerous coronavirus is, and how people aren't taking precautions seriously.
Uhlfelder says he is most worried about people from hard-hit areas of the South.
Uhlfelder launched a website where people can contribute to his tour.

When revved-up kids used to dribble a basketball through the kitchen or practice their footwork with a soccer ball in front of the television, exasperated parents would often just send ‘em outside to play. But these days, sending kids out might not be the best course of action. Despite all the changes, many budding young […]
