Greetings, As a physician whose credentials include a masters degree in public health, and board certification in preventive medicine, I applaud state and local leaders as they make difficult decisions with the goals of keeping us all safe and healthy during these difficult times. Closing the Fort Myers Beach beach to individuals who would like to make solitary walks along the beach accomplishes neither of those goals. It also risks detrimental impact on both the physical and mental well-being of Fort Myers Beach residents. Options for exercise and fresh air are minimal during these days.
Open the beaches for solitary walks!
