About this Episode

High school student JJ Holmes is pleading with the Governor to let districts adopt masking policies so he can go back to school. JJ has cerebral palsy; he's confined to a wheelchair, and can't go back to school if the other kids don't have to wear a mask.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— JJ appeared courtesy of Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who continues to attack the Governor's entire response to the COVID-19 crisis.

— The Governor held a news conference in Orlando Monday to talk about treating COVID-19 patients with Regeneron treatment … a monoclonal antibody cocktail for people who already have this disease. He even brought one of his top health bureaucrats because her daughter was treated with monoclonal antibodies.

— But Democrats in the Legislature says there is so much more the Governor should be doing to help hospitals deal with the new wave of COVID-19 cases.

— And finally, two stories: A Florida Man who can steal your catalytic converter in 90 seconds flat and a Florida Woman arrested for exposing his breasts to her husband ... in jail.
