The news is out: [Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed Tuesday to keep restaurants fully open throughout the rest of the coronavirus pandemic and help workers in the state’s hospitality industry continue to get paid.
“We’ve got your back,” he said of servers, cooks and other employees while visiting the Okeechobee Steakhouse in West Palm Beach. “You’re going to have that right defended by the governor.”
DeSantis said statistics show the majority of COVID-19 infections are happening in the home, not when people are eating meals out. He said with the Christmas holiday coming up it’s important to keep business humming, no matter what.
“The evidence at this point shows restaurants are not significant drivers” of the virus, the governor said.
Florida has experienced a surge of new COVID-19 cases since mid-October, weeks after DeSantis pushed the state into Phase 3 of the state’s reopening program. The state is now averaging more than 9,000 cases a day.
But the governor said the arrival of vaccines this week is a turning point in the battle against the virus.
On an unrelated note earlier in the day, DeSantis told reporters in Tallahassee that acknowledging Joe Biden as the president-elect was “not for me to do.”]
Floriduh is pushing and stretching the boundaries of stupidity every day. At this point in time, a dog would have been a better governor; the voters are still clueless. DeSantis is dispensing medical advices without a license.
