The impact of coronavirus changed a lot this year. The usual cookouts, get-togethers, and pool parties didn’t happen. Neither did the big city-held fireworks extravaganzas. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t fireworks.
If your neighborhood is anything like ours, then you still heard plenty of booms and bangs deep into the night on the 4th. In fact, the fireworks industry say record sales in Florida this year.
With that increase of at-home fireworks shows, there has been a corresponding decrease in the safety precautions taken. And that, unfortunately, means that many people were injured by those fireworks this past weekend.
