Although over 27,000 vehicles traveled to the interior on the weekend, only 1,500 headed to the beaches or rivers which were reopened after a seven-month hiatus.

The Ministry of Security reported that during operations, carried out over the weekend 17 people were brought before justices of the peace; 14 of them for not using the mask and three for drinking liquor.

“Each was fined $100 and we will continue to be vigilant that these guidelines are met, ”said Police Commissioner  Arroyavez.

Conservatives usually favor strict enforcement of the law. But not when it comes to the worst pandemic in a century. Jose makes a silly argument that the rules are intended as money makers. They raised a paltry 1,400 over the weekend. That didn't cover much of the cost of the enforcement.

Conservatives are always whining about "freedom"....like they are everyday living in a prison. Understand something....civilized society requires rules and regulations. Ate you free to drive on the left side of the road? What happens if you do? Chaos!! Are you free to walk into a dtore and simply walk away with anything you want? No! Rules are a part of civilized society. If you don't like rules, go live in the middle of the jungle. And then the rules of nature will be your nemesis. So stop whining like a lottle b-tch, and follow the rules. It also shows a little empathy for others....you know...something that you and all those like you, are dearly short of.
