Social distancing not being observed

This letter is for the two adults and two kids on bikes Monday morning on Despard Avenue in front of the dog park.

Neither of the adults seemed aware of the importance of keeping a physical distance from others during this COVID-19 crisis.

How is this possible? Disrespectful and just incredibly irresponsible.
