Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Threatens to Shut Down Montrose Beach

Montrose Beach
In case you were wondering, I stopped by to see for myself. It’s being addressed.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot on Saturday threatened shut down Montrose Beach after a picture showed “reckless behavior” in the area.

“It’s called a pandemic, people. This reckless behavior on Montrose Beach is what will cause us to shut down the parks and lakefront. Don’t make us take steps backwards,” she tweeted.

Lightfoot said she had to come down and see it for herself before saying that the the situation is being dealt with.

Chicago posted 2,190 cases of COVID-19 and 18 deaths on Saturday.
