Hordes of spring breakers are descending upon South Florida, and local officials are terrified that these people are bringing COVID with them. In addition to ignoring social distancing guidelines, these spring breakers are not wearing masks, and they are engaging in dangerous behavior out in the open, including fighting in the streets.

Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.
