Data from the Department of Health shows Florida reported the lowest number of new cases this morning since June 14. Governor DeSantis held an education roundtable in Tallahassee with Stanford doctor and White House advisor, Scott Atlas, as the remainder of Florida districts started back to school today. All districts are currently offering in-person instruction as an option, with the exception of Palm Beach, Broward, and South Florida. On Friday, the 1st District Court of Appeals imposed a stay on the Circuit Court’s previous ruling regarding the teachers union lawsuit on reopening schools, meaning the emergency order remains in effect as schools reopen. Also Friday, Governor DeSantis issued an executive order suspending license and permit renewals for the manufacture, sale, and distribution of alcohol through December 31st.
Executive Order 20-211 (below) provides a limited, one-month extension to Executive Order 20-180, which made significant changes to prior versions of the mortgage foreclosure and eviction relief orders.
