Good, then not so much

The Florida governor has resisted issuing a statewide order of this kind up until this point more than 30 days after the first case of the virus was reported in Florida, but on Wednesday, as Florida’s coronavirus cases neared 7,000, including more than 80 dead, he said it was time. ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis stressed again on Wednesday that he has no plans to issue a sweeping stay-at-home order in the Sunshine State to combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

As of Friday morning, 4/3/2020, Florida confirmed cases surged past 9,000, with 144 dead.

Coronavirus: Friday – Florida governor issues statewide, 30-day stay-at-home order. The statewide stay-at-home order went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday. Residents will still be allowed to go out to get essential supplies, including food and groceries. THEN “To order someone not to be able to earn a paycheck when them going to work is not going to have any effect on what we’re doing with the virus, that is something that I think is inappropriate.”

States with stay-at-home orders, such as Virginia and Maryland, are requiring places of worship to limit in-person services to 10 people to comply with bans on large gatherings while adhering to physical distancing measures. Michigan, New Mexico, Delaware, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia also. I am so glad not to be an attendee of any Irresponsible group. Florida, Michigan, New Mexico, Delaware, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia allowing church services during coronavirus pandemic. Service – YES. Gathering – NO. Whimpy Whimpy Whimpy Wimpy Governors will be given responsibility for the spread. I hope the connection is made IF their numbers go up… No one really knows yet! When asked about the church continuing to stay open, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) warned that “any pastor who brings people together in close proximity to each other, a large group of people, is making a huge mistake.”

Update 4/10/2020, Good Friday, Florida confirmed cases 17,531, with 390 dead.
