  • As Florida reopens, visitors are again pouring in, particularly in the state’s Panhandle. It’s not only beaches and restaurants that have started welcoming visitors again. Florida’s workout facilities are open, too despite some daunting challenges. Florida lawmakers are taking notice of COVID-19’s racial disparities. So far the disease is far more deadly for minority populations. As applications soar, problems remain with Florida’s unemployment claims system, Governor Ron DeSantis insists one big problem is user error on the part of applicants. A receiver takes over the assets of the besieged Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. How could Florida’s state and local emergency management people keep people safe from hurricanes this season while also protecting them from the coronavirus?

  • Florida’s unemployment system is slowly getting better, but after finally managing to sign up, too many are finding no gold at the end of the rainbow. An advocate for nursing home residents says families are concerned about the safety of their loved ones in those facilities. Come Monday, more of Florida will be opening to consumers. Summer travel will look different this year. The State Board of Education decides that taking an exam instead of courses is equally effective when it comes to making sure students know how American government works. But not everyone agrees. The coronavirus has thrown a lot of plans out of whack for a lot of people. We take a look into how mothers-to-be are trying to make the best of it.
