And make no mistake, it’s the Democrats that don’t care.

They’d keep the country shutdown for good if they could.

Well the Republican Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has put Floridians minds at ease by promising he will not allow any further shutdowns!

Here’s the story on the governor’s announcement from USA Today:

Some coronavirus restrictions started easing up Monday in parts of South Florida.

In Miami-Dade County, restaurants were allowed to welcome back diners to indoor seating for the first time in almost two months, provided masks were worn and the establishments operated at 50% capacity.

In Palm Beach County, officials issued an order allowing tattoo and body piercing parlors, as well as tanning salons, to reopen starting Monday.

In Miami-Dade County, most indoor dining has been banned in the county since early July to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

“This does not mean this is over by a long shot,” Mayor Carlos Gimenez said in an online news conference. “While we’re heading in the right direction, we’re not out of the woods.”

“Everything’s open except the nightclubs and the pubs, and that’s something we’re going to address,” DeSantis said. “We’re going to work on our three southern Florida counties, getting them where we are. And that’s really the last piece of the puzzle.”

DeSantis vowed never to have another lockdown in Florida. “I hear people say they’ll shut down the country, and, honestly, I cringe,” he said.

The Daily Caller has more details:

DeSantis’ comments come after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he would do “whatever it takes” to combat the virus during an interview with ABC’s David Muir.

“I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists. We’re going to do whatever it takes to save lives,” Biden said.

But DeSantis said he thinks a shutdown could be disastrous and would hinder economic growth.

“We gained 74,000, I think, private-sector jobs in July. Just imagine if we had shut down the state, we would have lost another 3-400,000 jobs. And so I think that we understand what we need to do,” DeSantis said, before comparing the effectiveness of lockdowns in Florida to Peru.

“Military enforced since March. They have the highest per capita mortality in the world from COVID. And at best, what the lockdown will do is delay. It does not reduce the ultimate mortality … it creates a lot of other problems with mortality that a lot of people don’t necessarily focus on,” he said.
