  1. I live in Santa Rosa County up on the panhandle and there are people coming in from Georgia, Alabama, Ohio, Texas, Louisiana. They’re all going to the beaches they’re all going in the stores nobody is wearing masks here.

  2. Leon County enacted a mask ordinance for all business establishments and public transportation on June 23 that went into effect on June 25. There are exemptions for: children under six years old, people with chronic health conditions, public safety officials, customers eating or drinking in a restaurant, and customers exercising at a gym. It also allows business owners and employees to take them off when in areas closed to the public.

  3. I live in Citrus County. The majority of people here do not wear mask. I have been following several post to include comments of people in our county concerning mask and the virus. What I am seeing are comments about how wearing a mask is taking away their rights. Oh and of course the comments are many that say it is a Hoax, it is no worse than the flu, it is the fault of the Democrats and it goes on and on.
    I do not have an N 95 mask but I truly wish I did. My opinion is N 95 mask should be mass produced and given to the elderly and those with serious health problems.
    I believe everyone should be required to wear mask when in public establishments in order for us to get a handle on the increase in positive cases.

  4. Debbie, Manatee County votes on June 29, concerning mask in public and the requirements if any.

  5. Where to start.. hardly anyone wearing masks in charlotte county AND did not like seeing the information that DeSantis stopped providing information on available hospital beds… when the fall out of all these cases hits who has a plan for our local Hospitals??

  6. Roger I agree, I did not like the fact that Desantis decided to keep the information concerning available ICU beds private! Where is the sense in that??
