Popular getaway spots including the Ocean City, Maryland, boardwalk were packed this weekend as Americans took advantage of loosening coronavirus restrictions to celebrate Memorial Day weekend.
People flocked to Ocean City's beach and boardwalk on Saturday, many without masks. Ocean City police was on the lookout for groups of 10 or more people, which are prohibited.
"We have officers on horseback, foot patrol and vehicle patrol," Ashley Miller, spokesperson with Ocean City police, told CBS Baltimore. "If we do see groups of ten or more, we remind them that it is a violation of the governor's order. Depending on the situation, we would determine what kind of action would be taken."
