As states move forward with opening up their economies, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) was interviewed by Fox and Friends regarding the sunshine state’s efforts to combat the coronavirus and get the state economy back up and running.
With the stay-at-home order expiring on April 30th, the Florida Governor wanted to discuss how the state will be moving forward.
Glad to have joined @foxandfriends this morning to discuss how Florida is successfully flattening the curve. Floridians are doing a great job at stopping the spread and together we will re-open Florida’s economy. https://t.co/dPHaAq6BPF

On Twitter, the Governor shared his segment from the show, adding that “Florida is successfully flattening the curve.”
As well, he congratulated Floridians, saying that they “are doing a great job at stopping the spread” and reminding that “together we will re-open Florida’s economy.”
