As the pandemic worsens and the virus continues to spread throughout the world, President Trump announced the extension of the official Social Distancing Guidelines until April 30th. What does this mean? Fifteen days were added to the original social distancing decree, which would have ended the same day of the announcement. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of March 29th, there were 122,653 reported cases nationwide and 4,950 in Florida.

Please, stay inside and stay informed. You may have come in contact with the virus and could be a carrier who spreads it to someone else. Stay safe and be positive. We will all get through this soon enough.
Readers, if you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, call your nearest medical facility and seek care right away.
