I was surprised and disappointed by the appointment of Mr. J. Dalton to fill the vacant seat on the Board of County Commissioners.
Dalton has recently reopened his gym in Rosman, in contradiction of Gov. Cooper’s executive order that keeps gyms closed until late June. Transylvania County has experienced low numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases thus far, although these will surely increase as restrictions are eased. Keeping gyms closed makes sense, since physical exertion results in forced exhalation and greater distance of travel for exhaled aerosolized droplets carrying virus particles...
