  1. The majority of Boston residents have done a great job with wearing facecovers and practicing social distances.I support the protests as long as their peaceful but I’m concerned that the protesters and opening the city too quickly is going to lead to a spike in new COVOID-19 cases that is occuring in other states that have reopened around the country. I’m afraid were going to take one step forward and two steps backwards?
