    So many people are not wearing masks, not sheltering in place nor social distancing. I see many neighbors having parties in tbe entire month of May. Tbey are endangering others. I live in East Oakland. So it seems they are not taking the virus serious. I pray they will stop being selfish and show some respect to the neighborhood.
