A local comedian is putting out a warning for the people of SWFL, telling them they need to take the pandemic seriously. Comedian John Loeber made the public plea on Facebook after being hospitalized for the coronavirus.
“I have not taken this seriously at all from the beginning. I thought the quarantine was overkill. I’d see the numbers on the news every night, and I’m like those are just numbers,” Loeber said. “When the restaurants and bars opened back up, I was going out almost every night. I wasn’t wearing a mask.”
