Group of Florida mayors call on DeSantis to issue mask mandate | TheHill

The Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the mayors of Miami Beach, Sunrise, St. Petersburg, Hialeah and Miami Shores Village urged DeSantis to take a range of actions to confront the outbreak, including expanding state testing and contact tracing efforts.

“It’s unmistakably clear that Florida’s approach to managing this pandemic is failing pretty horribly,” said Miami Beach’s mayor, Dan Gelber (D) according to the newspaper.

“The window is closing and closing fast,” added Hialeah’s mayor, Carlos Hernandez (R). “If we sit here and don’t do anything, I don’t want to be the one sitting here talking about closing businesses again or the hospitals are overcrowded.”
