Freedom in the USA has become the mantra of Americans that refuse to wear a mask in public to help reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19.  Hoax is the other call of the Americans that refuse to believe the COVID-19 numbers as those testing positive are reaching daily records of over 15,000 in Florida alone and the Intensive Care units in hospitals reach capacity.  USA is still #1 for confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Ontario numbers are dropping and restrictions are being relaxed we are entering Stage  3 (groups of 100 are permitted outdoors and groups of 50 indoors).  Canadians are imploring the government to keep the Canada-USA border closed and to not permit the COVID-19 exposed/infected Americans into Canada.  One newspaper actually predicted that the boarder won’t be open for at least a year for tourists.
