Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been abysmal. From day one he has put politics over the public safety of Floridians. 22% of Florida's population of 21,995,985 are senior citizens - the most vulnerable. As the pandemic spread, DeSantis recklessly refused to issue statewide stay-at-home. He  one of the country's last governors to finally issue that order, effective April 3.  DeSantis adopted the Donald Trump philosophy on COVID response, which caused reckless disregard for public safety. He refused to issue statewide beach closures, in spite of increasing evidence of community spread.

He ignored CDC guidelines for states to reopen, which required a consecutive 14 day decline in new COVID cases. He recklessly reopened the state, effective May 4. Phase Two of reopening was effective Jun 5, which included bars and restaurants. DeSantis refuses to issue a statewide order requiring masks, despite staggering increase in new COVID cases. The percent of positive cases has increased from 5.8% on May 22 to 15.04% on Jun 30. DeSantis reopened too soon. DeSantis ignored science. Floridians will continue to die needlessly because he is incompetent.
