The problem is, COVID-19 didn't just disappear because we are all tired of staying inside and want to have a fun summer. Unfortunately, viruses have a mission to infect as many people as possible and they usually don't spare anyone just because they happen to be bored and want to go on a Tinder date or post a beach selfie.
So, after Florida opened bars on June 5th, a group of friends decided to go out and pretend everything was back to normal at Lynch's Irish Pub. 40-year-old healthcare worker, Erika Crisp said she had previously been following all social distancing rules and self-isolating for months (as we'd hope from a healthcare worker). But with bars reopening, many people thought it was safe to resume life before we had to stand six feet apart and cover our mouths and noses with masks. Unfortunately, she and 15 of the friends she went to Lynch's Irish Pub with were later infected with COVID-19, and all common threads lead to Lynch's.
