(Le Mars) — As a way to combat the boredom of being isolated during this time of heighten awareness of the COVID-19 coronavirus, several people got in their vehicles Sunday afternoon and “scooped the loop” of Central Avenue. More than 200 cars, pickups, and even an occasional semi truck were seen driving on Central Avenue. The vehicles were traveling back and forth heading north and then turning around at the tear drop and going south through the downtown area. One individual participating in the driving caravan says it reminded him of the days when he was in high school, looking for possible dates. The people were notified of the activity through social media.
