From the perspective of this columnist, I must say that it has been extremely frustrating trying to answer reasonable questions about the orders and guidelines surrounding the coronavirus.

Just as I feel I have a handle on who can or cannot do what, when and where, something changes — and in most cases added confusion is part of it.

We certainly apologize for this dynamic, evolving incident. One of the outlets I encourage is fishing. As stated, the surf beaches and even the bay are still open. If you are lucky enough to live on the water or have a friend that does use the canals and bay. If you have a boat and want to go out by all means do so. Please just use social distancing. While looking out on the water after work yesterday, I didn’t see anyone within 600 feet much less 6ft. “Keep Fishing” just be careful and keep us safe.
