About this Episode

On Monday, Gov. Ron DeSantis lowered the age limit for COVID-19 vaccinations to 60; he says it's going to drop to 55 before the end of the month.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— The state reported Wednesday another 59 fatalities and 4,600 new cases of COVID-19.

— Telehealth came into its own during the pandemic, as doctors saw patients over Zoom or FaceTime; now there's bill to do the same with VideoVets.

— A legislative committee approves Sen. Lauren Book's bill that suspends the medical license of any doctor arrested for child pornography … like her family’s pediatrician.

— DeSantis wants to spend more than $100 million federal COVID-19 relief money to keep up civics education in Florida schools.

— From the Governor's description, it sounds like kids will be getting a sanitized version of American civics. For example, they won't be allowed to discuss critical race theory.

— And finally, two Florida Men: One accused of rioting for Donald Trump; the other accused of setting off a smoke bomb outside the former President's home at Mar-a-Lago.
