About this Episode

Florida’s COVID-19 crisis shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, it's getting worse.

Also on today’s Sunrise:

— More people are hospitalized than ever … but the Governor is trying to dismiss those numbers by say it's all part of the cycle.

— Florida's kids are heading back to school and Gov. Ron DeSantis is sticking to his guns … saying local school districts cannot require students to wear a mask.

— The state Board of Education weighed in, but not in a good way. They adopted an emergency rule saying students shamed for refusing to wear a mask in school are eligible for a scholarship to a private school.

— The rule was approved unanimously by the Governor's supporters who serve on the board.

— And finally, two Florida Men: One of them had to call a professional trapper to get rid of a toilet iguana; the other died of COVID-19 after downplaying the epidemic.
