    With case’s double ling almost everyday it won’t be long before most of Florida will be like Miami. Then the Governor will order a stay at home order,with Florida’s large population of people over the age of 60 you would think that the Governor would have already ordered it but no as it’s all a political game pleasing certain politicians in D.C.

    @James – of these positive tests, only 2 are currently hospitalized, and there are no Escambia County deaths.
