That is why mayor didn't want to close schools

However, there are fewer people outside due to the virus. Problem is that criminals are taking advantage of masks being common to wear one and commit crimes, so any increase is much more likely when you see one or two with masks.

Correct, As well if anyone rings your Door Bell & if they are wearing a FaceMask and you dont recognize them with the facemask, do Not let them in your house or apartment, Ask them thru the closed/locked door or intercome to take off their facemask just so you can see who it is before letting them inside regardless who they “Claim” to be, they can say they are delivery or anything else etc etc, This is very important for our entire community to be aware of.

Crime?

the religious leaders of the public school kids don’t seem to be taking any responsibility. They must make programs for the children. At the least, it will keep the already innocent children from meeting up with the kids who are already up to trouble. People have to put pressure on them to do so. A group of 10 kids or less, or whatever. however it can be done

Absolutely
