Is Florida “Covid-Free?” No, but people are sure acting like it. Florida is opening back up, and according to usafacts.org, 39% of Florida’s population is COVID-19 vaccinated. I have noticed that most businesses in Florida don’t require masks (as long as you’re fully vaccinated). I figured that I’d take a look at what Twitter is saying about Florida’s Covid-free future. I was hoping you could take a look with me at this Social Media Round-Up.
OPEN FOR BUSINESS – The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood — the largest hotel in Broward County — welcomed back guests and employees on Tuesday after they were closed for 14 months due to the pandemic. https://t.co/yeHVwdtGB8

People are excited because their favorite places in Florida are opening back up. After fourteen months of a pandemic, getting into this “new normal” of moving towards a better future is excellent.
Ron DeSantis is almost single handedly responsible for Florida & Texas, among others, being open without restrictions. Abbott & other Govs only cleared the way after DeSantis made initial anti-lockdown stand.
Around 100MM Americans have been positively impacted by our governor.

Many are thanking Governor Ron DeSantis for helping open back up Florida (and even Texas).
I still have a ways to go to reach my goals but I’ve finally got my head in a good place to focus on my overall health. I’ve kicked the coffee addiction and am at my lowest weight in the past year. COVID weight is gone and strength is back up. I got this! #goteamjay

I love to see the “feel-good” tweets, so I figured I would share them with you all. Congratulations to Jay, I can’t say I’ve lost my COVID weight or kicked my coffee addiction, but I love to live vicariously through you all.
"When Covid-19 restrictions sent the U.S. economy into free fall last spring, economists and policy makers worried it would take years for workers and businesses to heal. They now expect the economy’s size to surpass pre-pandemic levels this quarter." https://t.co/W79YPx3AcH

Apparently, the economy is also recovering from Covid. After being locked in our houses for fourteen months, I can see why. Personally, I’ve saved the most money I’ve ever saved while in lockdown, and as they say… more money, more spending. That’s the saying… right?
Per @nytimes, the average daily death toll for COVID is now under 360; it was over 3,050 deaths per day, just 134 days ago.
We must lower it further — and we can, if everyone gets their vaccinations: free, convenient, and safe. pic.twitter.com/v88OpDgzMg

White House Chief of Staff, Ronald Klain, tweets some hope for the future while asking others to get vaccinated. It’s so great to know that we are healing from Covid; I hope it continues.
Good morning guys. Happy pride month. Just reminder that keep distance and mask. Covid is not gone yet.

Of course, many people warn us through tweets that while things are getting better, it’s best to stay masked up and six feet apart. What do you think? Should we keep pushing the limits or stay within the lines? Let me know on social and as always, stay safe. Feel free to check out last week’s social media round-up.
