The Governor talks about the recklessness of young people at some unnamed group event that caused a spike in Uinta county, but fails to mention the large gathering for a protest here in Sheridan where social distancing and masking ‘rules’ flew out the window. Isnt that also dangerous? I would say that if anyone wants to have a large gathering, just call it a protest, and all will be good.

No Masks!!! I would agree Thomas,-“reckless” is a good word. As reckless as the 100’s of folks in bars, the demonstrators for Black Lives Matter, the folks crowding on beaches, reckless as the many shoppers in Sheridan’s stores, reckless as the people attending political rallies, reckless as the some members of Congress, the vice-president, the white house staff, reckless as President Trump– the list of reckless people infecting others or being infected includes about all of us.. Ridiculous, how “reckless” we ALL are.
