Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that the state will begin to reopen May 4 but will exclude Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
“Florida will take a step. Small, deliberate, methodical, and based on consultation with some of our greatest physicians, towards a more helpful future," DeSantis said at a Covid-19 news conference. “We will get Florida back on its feet by using an approach that is safe, smart, and step by step.”
