Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said Tuesday that his state is “not going back” on reopening as thousands of new COVID-19 cases continue to be reported every day.
The Florida governor told reporters that the state will not follow Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) move to pause reopening, according to Axios.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We’re not going back, closing things,” he said. “I don’t think that that’s really what’s driving it, people going to a business is not what’s driving it. I think when you see the younger folks, I think a lot of it is more just social interactions, so that’s natural.”
Protecting the elderly and vulnerable are the state’s priorities, DeSantis reportedly said.
“We’re open, we know who we need to protect, most of the folks in those younger demographics, although we want them to be mindful of what’s going on, are just simply much much less at risk than the folks who are in those older age groups.”
“We are not going back to closing things. I don’t think that is what is driving it. People going to businesses is not what is driving it. I think when you see the younger folks, a lot of it is social interactions,” FL Gov. DeSantis just said he has no plans to shut things down.
