Czech Republic - The hardships of the COVID lockdown can lead some to do the strangest things to break the tedium of self-isolation, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. In the Czech Republic, which has imposed a 9:00 PM curfew as a result of the global pandemic, police are apparently quite serious about apprehending anyone who ignores the curfew. 

In one town, recently, a coronavirus patrol team stopped a man out for a walk after nine. He claimed he was walking his dog, which is allowed, and sure enough he was holding a leash at the end of which was his dog-- a stuffed toy dog. Caught red handed, the man explained it was just a joke. He was released on his own recognizance.
