Islands on Candlewood Lake will be closed to the public beginning Saturday after reports of large gatherings and potential risk of spreading the coronavirus.

The decision was made in collaboration between the power company, the Candlewood Lake Authority and the first selectmen in Sherman and New Fairfield, said Len Greene, FirstLight's spokesman.

"This necessary action follows reports of gatherings of large groups of people, sometimes numbering in the hundreds, without proper social distancing and other precautions taken to stop the spread of COVID-19," Greene said.

You would think that people would be able write off just one summer in their entire lifetimes. It's not as if we can't still have plenty of summertime fun, just don't do it with dozens or hundreds of others. It's not as if we have to make the same sacrifices as people did during the world wars or pandemic of 1918.

#3... Americans are weak, selfish and greed oriented.

Faux Noise is still pushing back against masks and social distancing. I don't understand how their lawyers are allowing them to continue to broadcast in such a reckless manner.
