About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis heads to Hard Rock Stadium to talk about coronavirus testing, show off the state’s new mobile laboratory — and do some China-bashing.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Phase One of Florida’s reopening may have started Monday, but stay-at-home orders are still in effect for three south Florida counties hard-hit by the virus. Miami-Dade’s Mayor says they’re almost ready to reopen.

— Amid a pandemic, the U.S. Supreme Court gears up for the GOP lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act. Millions of Floridians could lose their health care coverage if they haven’t already because of furloughs and layoffs. Florida Democrats say it's a disgrace that our own Attorney General is a part of that lawsuit.

— Legal arguments are done; now it’s up to a federal judge in Tallahassee to decide the fate of Florida’s law restoring the voting rights to former felons. The ACLU and the NAACP brought on the challenge, saying it’s nothing more than a pay-to-play scheme designed by GOP lawmakers to suppress the vote.

— The latest on a Florida Man making his second appearance on the podcast this week. Would you believe a sheriff at a swinger’s club? There are pictures.
