Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis relaxed about all the regulations designed to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— This relaxation of the rules includes Miami-Dade … one of Florida’s coronavirus hot spots. The county’s School Board doesn’t want to reopen all classrooms until mid-October, but Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran says he is having serious concerns about that. He wants in-person instruction to start two weeks sooner.
— The Governor has also banned mandatory mask rules imposed by cities and counties and has pardoned all the inconsiderate asshats who got a ticket for refusing to wear one.
— There’s a meme circulating on Reddit that sums it all up: Florida as “God’s Waiting Room — now with shorter wait times.” But DeSantis says the state can get back to business as usual because Florida is prepared for a second wave.
— Michael Carlson, of the Personal Insurance Federation of Florida, discusses how your homeowner rates are going up because of all the intermediaries.
— And finally, a Florida Woman raised $12,000 dollars to help pay the final expenses of three murder victims — but spent it all on herself instead.
