About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis is saying Capitol Police will have additional officers on standby to deal with any armed protests by disgruntled supporters of Donald Trump.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— During a news conference at The Villages, the Governor talked briefly about last week’s deadly riot in Washington … with one question he would not answer.

— DeSantis may not want to answer about the President, but he is doing a bit of a victory dance over his decision to put seniors at the head of the line for COVID-19 vaccinations.

— DeSantis also announced Publix stores in three North Florida counties will start offering vaccinations.

— Shortly after that announcement, the Department of Health released the daily COVID-19 casualty count. As of Tuesday, 23,585 died in Florida and more than one-and-a-half million have contracted the disease.

— On Sunrise in-depth, you’ll hear how the COVID-19 crisis has worsened the opioid crisis.

— And finally, today’s Florida Man story is about a firefighter charged with shenanigans at the U.S. Capitol last week.
