Cape Cod’s year-round residents, alarmed by an influx of out-of-state license plates amid the coronavirus outbreak, petitioning for the shutdown of the Bourne and Sagamore bridges — to keep out vacation homeowners and avoid overwhelming their small hospitals.

A Change.org petition to close the bridges, which had nearly 5,000 signatures by Monday afternoon, states: “Stop the spread of covid-19 close the bridges.  only year round residence, medical personnel. Trucks that deliver essential supplies.  While we love our tourists and summer residents this is not the time to come to the cape, out hospital can’t handle it. We only have 2 small hospitals here on cape, and limited medical staff.
keep the residences and elderly safe on cape.”

What’s really funny?  The people of The Hamptons on Long Island New York have the same response and the same request.  “Keep those f’king New York City ticks out of our towns!
