Disappointed in management of The Villages

To the Editor:

We would like to express how disappointed we are with The Villages management for allowing the rally on Friday.
Reports state there were 10,000 people. We observed that there was no social distancing and very little mask wearing. These people, not adhering to any CDC guidelines or listening to intelligent scientists, are walking among their fellow Villagers and friends now in the food stores, drug stores, etc. and putting everyone at risk.
Why doesn’t the “family” care more about those of us who live here and would like to continue to LIVE?
