Florida Governor Ron DeSantis tells South Floridians (Like myself) to stay at home until middle of April, clarifying his morning statement of mid-May which to some of us sounds about a good date as any I mean I will continue to stay in probably past “May” anyway for the most part since I can’t go out much due to me rehabbing my leg, and honestly what do I know if Mid April or May is a good date anyway?
What does anyone know at this point as these things spread like wildfire unless a cure is found asap.
State officials want Florida schools closed through May 1 due to the growing threat of the new coronavirus. So far, there’s no official change in any of the three South Florida districts. Gov. Ron DeSantis said March 17 that schools would remain closed until at least April 15. Districts have switched to online learning as a result. But during a conference callwith districts Monday afternoon, Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran recommended the closures be extended until May 1.
There has been confusion in South Florida about how soon certain businesses and agencies could re-open. Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday all of South Florida should live under a unified “safer at home” policy until May 15, but later walked that back, saying he instead meant April 15. It’s unlikely schools can re-open as long as the region remains under a stay-at-home order. The Department of Health said Monday evening that the state now has 5,704 coronavirus cases. The number of deaths is now 71. Of the newly reported deaths, two of were in Palm Beach County, one in Broward and one in Miami-Dade County.
