Just not enough social distancing going on, so the city "encouraged" Kelly's and other eateries along Revere Beach Boulevard to stop doing takeout and all agreed, the city reports.

Also, Mayor Brian Arrigo slowly drove along the beach with a bullhorn, yelling at people to keep their distance. The city reported 83 Covid-19 cases as of today, up from just 8 at the beginning of the week.

The Revere Journal reports the city Conservation Commission has banned animal burials on the beach. No, there hasn't been a rush by residents to say farewell to their pets by the water; the commission was reacting to the way the state buried a 25-foot-long, decomposing humpback whale under the sand last fall. City officials say next time, the state had just better find another way to dispose of large decomposing carcasses.

State Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney's office report somebody found a single bone, possibly human, on Revere Beach near the State Police barracks this morning. The DA's office adds:

There is at this time no apparent link to last week’s discovery of likely human remains on the western side of Rumney Marsh Reservation; pathologists continue to examine those remains but have not reached any formal conclusions yet as to their origin.
