Drove past rec center in Alamo last night. . Wondering why people would gather to do a contact sport during this time? Must have been over 20 people playing basketball. Jeez people .. really? Even if you feel okay you could be carrying the virus and spreading it. Omg. Very disappointing to see people ignoring common sense.
