    What doesn’t surprise you ladies? That one person is sick? What does it have to do with others not wearing masks? They didn’t say that the person cought Covid at Bent Anchor. We were there couple of times this season and every time all staff members were wearing masks. It’s a great place and we highly recommend and can’t wait for next season!

    Doesn’t surprise me. No one wears masks walking around this place, so I refused to go in. I sat in my boat at the dock, my friends went to tell others waiting for us that we were not going to stay.

    This doesn’t surprise me. I was there with my sister-in-law and we noticed the bartender and kitchen staff were not wearing masks or any sort of face covering. We didn’t finish our meal and left. The health unit really needs to do more to clamp down on businesses allowing the rules to be broken
