About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis will soon be announcing progress made toward fixing the state’s broken unemployment system.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— DeSantis spent the weekend holding briefings with medical experts in Miami and Orlando. Coronavirus hasn’t overwhelmed them, and they say it is time for non-COVID 19 patients to come back and take care of their health problems. They also warn that mask you’re wearing won’t work if you don’t use it right.

— When will Florida’s statewide stay-at-home order end? Officials have not figured that out yet, but it won’t be like they can flip a switch and things will go back to normal, the Governor says. People must be convinced they will be safe.

— Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried discusses the latest threat to the citrus industry in Florida. It comes from China — but it is not coronavirus.

— The latest in Florida Man — a pastor who sucker-punched a 70-year-old man trying to deliver free food to people hurt by the lockdown.
