Gov. DeSantis Seeks Public Input On How To Reopen Florida

Before Florida’s State Re-Open Task Force submits its final report on how to reopen the state’s economy, the committee is requesting the input of Floridians.

On Saturday, the task force launched a public comment submission portal where Florida residents can make their own recommendations.

Residents may submit feedback on any topic related to the re-opening of Florida’s economy, including the impacts to small business, healthcare, education, tourism, agriculture, retail, recreation, sports and construction.

In making the announcement, the governor’s office said “public feedback will be a critical component” of the task force’s final report to the Governor.

The 22-member committee, which includes Broward Mayor Dale Holness, spent last week deliberating and putting together recommendations on which businesses can reopen and how soon.

Governor Ron DeSantis did advise, however, that no movie theaters and sports venues will be open in May. DeSantis said the first phase of reopening may not correspond with the ending of the state’s stay-at-home order, which will expire on Thursday, April 30.

As of Sunday morning, the state reported more than 30, 800 COVID-19 cases including 1,055 deaths.

The submission portal can be accessed here.
