Have we reached the upper limit of our ability to safely respond to COVID-19? Going to the beach is a sacred rite of summer, that allows people to appear near-naked in public with thousands of strangers on any stretch of ocean coastline.

When a surge in cases happens, it triggers a chain reaction that has the potential to overwhelm local health care systems, disrupt supply chains, and shut down local economies.
