Default Florida lifts all Covid restrictions. All open/no masks

I hope Abbott follows Floridaís lead...

TALLAHASSEE Ė Bars and restaurants are no longer required to operate at less than full capacity, as Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order Friday removing all remaining restrictions on businesses because of the coronavirus pandemic.
But the executive order, which takes effect immediately, also prohibits local governments from closing businesses or collecting fines related to pandemic-related mandates, such as mask requirements.

Itís welcome, but the economic damage is done. Iím interested to see some statistics in the upcoming years around the economic impact created by the reactions from COVID.

My daughter is an infectious control NP and she told me her case load is going back up, the covid unit icu is full again. I would like to see it open up but I think certain areas of Texas are not ready yet.

To be fair....our part of Florida was never really closed.

For most of the time - everything was open, we ate out at restaurants, went to bars, didn’t wear a mask...

No reason not too. This is just a bad flu. The damage to small businesses and the economy has been done, anything after this is just hurting people.

Do you know how many times we have heard this type of statement only to find out it wasn't the case.
We need to open up the economy and those that feel they should take certain precautions for their health should do so.

Hope Texas follows. Went to Florida in august and I’d say they were a lot more relaxed on everything compared to Texas. The mask thing is just dump IMO. If you want to wear one on but should have to wear one if you don’t want to or force you to wear one to get into places.

I don't think my daughter would lie to me, there's no reason to and she's a staunch republican. My wife is a home health nurse and just got 6 new covid patients. To be honest our lives haven't changed much, we both work go out to eat 3 to 4 time a week, go to the movies, seen infidel last night.
When I post something like this it's not FB hearsay it's either first hand or second hand from imediate family members.

I dont think anyone is saying your daughter is lying to you. Just that the rona restrictions are having little to no effect on infection rates that is all.

I disagree to an extent. I do believe social distance helps and the mask in certain situations. I don't believe shutting down business helps and causes more harm then good. My daughter and wife disagree with me but I have to remind them that they see the worse cases. The drug my daughter is testing is looking good for treatment.

I could be persuaded that social distancing helps. There is zero emperical evidence to suggest masks work, especially given that no specific type of mask is to be worn. So most folks trot around with old, dirty reused masks on, or worse yet home made cloth masks, and they don't wear them properly. But by God you better have one on. Serious question what is your wife and daughters take on herd immunity? I've heard several Dr.s claim 15-20% and we reach heard immunity. Seems we could have hit that long ago without these restrictions.

My daughter thinks herd immunity is achievable and could get here before the vaccine is ready. My wife doesn't really treat covid patients, she's seeing them either for other issues or to draw labs. Your right about the masks they will not protect you from getting it but will lesson the chance of you spreading it. I only wear one when there's a sign on the door just to keep peace, i don't wear one to church or to chiropractor as they don't have a sign.

I'll add one more thing some of the patients in icu have been there several months and will most likely die as they have been on a vent for too long. The newer patients in the icu are mostly younger obese people

I know that, as the number of cases drops, many hospital networks are designating one or two hospitals in their networks as COVID hospitals, and directing COVID patients only to those designated facilities, while transitioning the remaining hospitals in their networks back to normal operations. As you would imagine, those hospitals that are COVID centers have seen an increase in COVID patients simply because they are now serving a larger geographic area. I wonder if this could be happening in your area as well?

I was out of town this weekend and didn't see much news. But this doesn't seem widely reported even though it is great news for our country. Guess it doesn't fit the doom and gloom narrative.
