Florida’s death toll from COVID-19 continues to rise as Gov. Ron DeSantis insists we’re doing a lot better than some other states. The pandemic is nowhere near as bad in Florida as some of the experts had feared it might be, he adds.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— The Governor’s Re-Open Task Force spends another day trying to figure out when we can start getting back to normal. While there were all sorts of suggestions, only one thing is certain right now: They need a better system for conference calls.
— The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida Larry Keefe is warning you to beware of coronavirus scams, especially is they claim they can speed up your federal stimulus check if you pay them a fee.
— Every Democrat in the Florida Senate has signed onto a letter urging the Governor to make changes in unemployment, increase testing for COVID-19, and do more to secure our food supply. Sen. Gary Farmer, leader of the Senate Democrats, will talk about the letter.
