    Hopefully a quick question and I do realize that the Covid situation is fluid. So the curfew is now midnight but there is a location ban on beaches and parking lots. Is that "congregating" on beaches or in parking lots? Can I still walk along the Palm Beach, beach side, paved path to get from point A to point B after 7 pm and before midnight? Might stop at any given bar for a night cap but our party of 4, would most likely keep walking to our destination. Thank you!

    I'm pretty sure you'll be OK in the resort areas along the beach.....
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!
