About this Episode

We're finally getting a break from the Legislature … but not the pandemic.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Florida's death toll broke 37,000 Thursday, but the state's positivity rate was the lowest since October.

— Dr. Anthony Fauci appears in a “Fireside Chat” with U.S. Southern Command and Florida International University to offer a three-point plan for getting COVID-19 under control.

— Fauci says we need to do a better job convincing people to get vaccinated; a new report says people who live in Florida counties that voted for Donald Trump are less likely to get a shot.

— The Biden Bucks from the American Rescue Plan is starting to go to local governments across the state … no thanks to the GOP.

— But Republicans in Tallahassee had no problem using that money to fund the largest budget in Florida history.

— An urban farm in St. Petersburg is trying to change the face of Florida agriculture with vertical farming in converted shipping containers. It's called Brick Street Farms.

— A Central Florida Judge will have to make the trek to Tallahassee for a public reprimand because he tried to talk an attorney out of running against one of his fellow judges. That's against their code of conduct.

— And finally, police are accusing a Florida Man of shooting at another driver because the guy threw a banana at his truck. Will he claim he was standing his ground?
