No one could have ever predicted the year 2020 turned out to be. The world was not prepared for 2020 and the pandemic that would cause so many tribulations and hardships, sadness, frustrations, and discourse. And with over 1 million cases of COVID in Florida and Florida reporting the 3rd most cases, relief is something the majority of Floridians are anxious for.
With Vaccines now being administered throughout the state, Florida is ending the year with hope of a better 2021.
In the past few month, the government has been abnormally quiet about the reporting of COVID. What has been reported is that Gov. Ron DeSantis has said the state will not enforce a mask mandate, nor restrict capacity at bars and restaurants. He has left it up to the county and city governments to make their own mandates, but has discouraged it.
What Florida and Gov. Ron DeSantis appears to be doing right, is the distribution of vaccines. The Pfizer and Moderna shots are nearly all going to health care workers and residents of long-term care homes, based on the advice of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

Vaccines are underway and will be more widely distributed and available for more groups in 2021.
It's important to note that even those getting the vaccines need to keep wearing masks. We all want to stop wearing them, but following the advise of the experts will help us conquer covid more effectively.
