Florida's statewide stay-at-home order is due to lift on April 30th, but even with the mandate expiring in a few days, expect a slow roll of business openings in the coming weeks. Opening up America again, is going to be a drawn-out and steady process. Though there has been a decline in new cases around the world, there is currently no official cure for COVID-19.

Don’t Let COVID-19 Get You Down

It’s been a difficult few weeks with this quarantine, but as long as you are being a good citizen and sticking to local orders, you should not let this time get you down.
