Florida Governor Ron Desantis confirmed this Friday that Miami-Dade and Broward will begin phase two of economic reopening in both counties next week.
This phase will open the options so that very soon schools can resume classes in person, DeSantis said in a request that has been repeated in recent times.
DeSantis made the announcement during a press conference at the Frost Museum of Science, attended by Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez and Miami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho.
The governor assured that with this measure both counties will be able to allow in-person instruction to resume in schools after they were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic that has left around 193,186 dead throughout the country.
“Miami-Dade has the best school district in the country so we are working hand in hand with Superintendent Carvalho,” said the governor, who said he understands the importance of parents having schools to take their children to.
In both counties, Miami-Dade and Broward, there has been a significant reduction in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in recent weeks. Something that evidently helps the authorities to move us towards stages of recovery in the middle of a pandemic that reduces their positivity statistics.
