'Grim Reaper' Visits Florida Beaches to Protest Reopening Amid COVID-19

A man dressed as the Grim Reaper paid a visit to beaches in Florida to protest their reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Daniel Uhlfelder donned the costume to urge people to stay away from the beaches despite the restrictions being lifted.

“I thinks it’s premature that we open our beaches,” Uhlfelder told media. “The danger of bringing all these people to our area and spreading the virus, I think it’s going to prolong the recovery we have.”
