HEALTH, IN THE REALM OF SOCIAL COST AND IN THE REALM OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY WE ALSO WILL PROTECT PEOPLE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND CONSTITUTIONAL AND INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, THERE HAVE BEEN WIDE-RANGING AND PUNITIVE ORDERS ISSUED IN VARIOUS REGIONS OF THIS COUNTRY, PEOPLE HAVE RIGHTS, THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO PROTECT HEALTH BUT WE SHOULD NOT GO BEYOND WHAT IS NECESSARY TO DO THAT, WE ALSO WANT PUBLIC CONFIDENCE, ONE OF THE REASONS WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A VERY SLOW AND METHODICAL APPROACH IS BECAUSE WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD AS MUCH CONFIDENCE AS POSSIBLE WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC WE WILL ALSO PARTNER WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES WHICH IS WHAT WE DID FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WE KNEW THE EPIDEMIC WAS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT IN SOUTHEAST FLORIDA AND WE WORKED WITH THE COUNTIES DIFFERENTLY AND TREATED THEM DIFFERENTLY THAN WE WOULD IN JACKSONVILLE OR NORTHWEST FLORIDA WHERE THE EPIDEMIC WAS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS OUR PLAN FROM THE BEGINNING TO FIGHT COVID-19 IS GOING TO CONTINUE, NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE ABOUT THAT WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PROTECT THE VULNERABLE, WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO INCREASE TESTING AND OUTLINE THE STEPS AND JUST A MINUTE WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROMOTE VARIOUS FORMS OF SOCIAL DISTANCING, THERE’S AN UNFORTUNATE HABIT OF PEOPLE PARTICULARLY IN THE MEDIA TO CONFLATE SHELTER IN PLACE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING SOCIAL DISTANCING INVOLVES A WHOLE HOST OF THINGS THAT CAN BE DONE TO HELP REDUCE THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS, NUMBER FOUR, WE HAVE TO SUPPORT HOSPITAL CAPACITY IN OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS, WE’VE DONE THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO IT AND WE WANT TO PREVENT THE INTRODUCTION OF THE VIRUS FROM OUTSIDE THE STATE, WE DID THAT WHEN WE SCREEN THE PEOPLE IN LEE NEW YORK CITY, WE DO 25 – 30000 OF THOSE WERE ALSO TALKING WITH THE PRESIDENT ABOUT WHEN INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS ARE COMING INTO PLACES LIKE MIAMI, WHAT CAN WE DO IN TERMS OF TESTING PEOPLE BEFORE THEY GET ON THE PLANE SO AS NOT CONSTANTLY BEING INTRODUCED TO OUR SOCIETY WE NEED TO FOCUS ON FACTS AND NOT FEAR I THINK THERE’S BEEN A LOT THAT HAS BEEN DONE TO TRY TO PROMOTE FEAR, TO PROMOTE WORST-CASE SCENARIOS, TO DRIVE HYSTERIA AND I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO THINKING HAS NOT PROVEN TO BE TRUE SO LET’S TAKE A QUICK LOOK SO PEOPLE KNOW, WE WERE TOLD OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT FLORIDA WAS GOING TO BE JUST LIKE NEW YORK WHEN IT CAME TO THE CORONAVIRUS LET’S LOOK AT THE TALE OF THE TAPE, HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO NEW YORK, FATALITIES, OBVIOUSLY A MUCH DIFFERENT PICTURE, THIS IS EQUAL POPULATION PER 100,000, MUCH LESS EVEN IF YOU DID ABSOLUTE NUMBERS, EVEN IF YOU DID 2 MILLION PEOPLE, NEW YORK FAR FAR AND ABOVE WHAT FLORIDA IS SAME THING ABOUT HOSPITALIZATIONS, HOSPITALIZATION RATE THAT IS A MERE FRACTION OF WHAT YOU SEE, AND MANY OTHER STATES STATES LIKE NEW YORK AND PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW IT WAS WRONG SECOND, FLORIDA WILL BE LIKE IN NEWBURGH ITALY, SO NOT JUST LIKE ITALY, WAY WORSE THAN ITALY IS WHAT THEY WERE TRYING TO SAY LET’S SEE WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING, MOST OF THE TALE OF THE TAPE, ITALY, HOSPITALIZATION PER 100,000 VERSUS FLORIDA I THINK ITALY WAS A LITTLE WORSE THAN FLORIDA AND THAT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE, WHAT ABOUT THE COUNTIES, HOW ABOUT THE TALLIES, PER 100,000 APPLES TO APPLES COMPARISON, NOT EVEN CLOSE SO NO, FLORIDA WAS NOT IN NEWBURGH ITALY AT ALL WE TALKED ABOUT HOSPITAL CAPACITY AND I REMEMBER READING BY LAST WEEK, IN MARCH BY APRIL 24, FLORIDA WOULD HAVE 461,000 PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED BECAUSE OF COVID-19 WHILE THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY SCARY ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER FLORIDA ONLY HAS 70000 LICENSED HOSPITAL BEDS SO IF YOU’RE PREDICTING THAT, YOU’RE PREDICTING THE BIGGEST BREAK OF THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM PROBABLY IN HUMAN HISTORY SO WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING, THAT’S A 465,000, WAY UP THERE FOR HOSPITALIZATION, YOU LOOK DOWN, 2111 HOSPITALIZATIONS SO WE WERE OFF BY 463,000 HOSPITALIZATIONS AGAIN THAT WAS A SCARY THING WHEN YOU’RE SAYING THAT WHEN YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO MEDICAL CARE AT ALL THEN YOU WOULD HAVE WEIGHT ASSESS OF TOTALITY’S, IT WOULD BE AN ABSOLUTE CATASTROPHE WE WERE AT 2000, THEY PREDICTED 460,000 OKAY, PROJECTIONS SAY THE STATE CAN RUN OUT OF ICU BEDS BY APRIL 14, VERY SCARY IF YOU NEED TO BE IN INTENSIVE CARE, YOU NEED CERTAIN TYPES OF

TREATMENT AND THERE’S NO BEDS AVAILABLE, WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN, I BASICALLY THAT WILL NOT BE GOOD, FLORIDA’S ICU BED AVAILABILITY TODAY, 36.5% OF THE ICU BED IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA SIT EMPTY WE DID NOT RUN OUT OF ICU BEDS, VENTILATORS, WHEN NO MORE VENTILATORS ARE LEFT, THEY SAID THEY WILL LIKELY COME A POINT WHEN THERE’S NO MORE VENTILATORS TO SHUFFLE AROUND AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, DOOM AND GLOOM, PEOPLE ARE IN TROUBLE, THEY HAVE LUNG PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS AND THERE’S ONLY THREE VENTILATORS BUT YOU HAVE TEN PATIENTS, WHAT HAPPENS, THAT WAS CONSTANTLY PUT OUT AS SOMETHING THAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN SO WHAT DID HAPPEN FLORIDA’S NEVER HAD A SHORTAGE OF VENTILATORS, NOT EVEN CLOSE IN FACT, HERE’S THE VENTILATOR USAGE WE HAVE ABOUT 379 PATIENTS CURRENTLY ON VENTILATORS, WE HAVE 6300 PLUS VENTILATORS SITTING IDLE UNUSED IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA NOBODY WAS GOING WITHOUT A VENTILATOR SO THE FACTS SHOULD BE MORE COMFORTING THAN THE FEAR NOW, THIS WAS THE FAMOUS CRAFT ABOUT FLATTENING THE CURVE, THE WHOLE REASON THE COUNTRY WOULD ON MITIGATION, THE REASON WHY FLORIDA TOOK SATAN STEPS WITH MITIGATION IS BECAUSE THERE’S A FEAR THAT IF THE VIRUS WAS ABLE TO RUN RAMPANT HE WOULD SPIKE INFECTIONS, HE IT WOULD OVERWHELM THE HOSPITAL SYSTEM AND LEAD TO EXCESSIVE TALLIES THE GOAL OF REDUCING THE CURVE WAS TO KEEP THE INFECTIONS UNDERNEATH THE HOSPITAL CAPACITY THAT’S THE REASON WE WENT ON WHAT WE’VE DONE, AS YOU CAN SEE NOT ONLY DO WE NOT REACH HOSPITAL CAPACITY, WERE FAR UNDER WHAT HOSPITAL CAPACITY IS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, THERE WAS NEVER A TIME WHEN THERE WERE BEDS THAT WERE NEEDED SO THE CURVE WAS FLATTENED, THE HOSPITAL SYSTEM HELD UP IN THE MAIN REASON WHY WE EMBARKED ON MITIGATION, THAT GOAL HAS BEEN SATISFIED AND NOT JUST HERE BUT IN MANY PLACES AROUND THE COUNTRY SO FACTS SHOULD BE COMFORTING, WE HAVE DONE MUCH BETTER THAN EVERYBODY SAID WE WOULD DO AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO APPLY FACT-BASED DATA-DRIVEN APPROACH TO THE PROBLEMS THAT ARE BEFORE US, WHEN THE PRESIDENT AND HIS TASK FORCE CAME OUT WITH THE GATING CRITERIA, FLORIDA WAS IN A POSITION WHERE WE KNEW WE WOULD VERY LIKELY SATISFY THE CRITERIA, HERE’S A CRITERIA WE HAD TO GO THROUGH, I SENT WHAT PORTER WAS DOING TO DOCTOR BIRX, I SPOKE WITH HER AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND SPOKE WITH THE PRESIDENT’S TEAM, THEY AGREE THAT FLORIDA IS READY TO GO TO PHASE ONE SO THEY LOOK AT THIS IN DRAMATIC LAST TWO WEEKS OF SIN DRAMATIC DATA, SO YOU LIKE COFFEE ASSOCIATED MISSIONS, YOU SEEN A BIG DROP SINCE LATE MARCH INTO FEBRUARY, THAT IS PRETTY CONSISTENT WITH SEEING FEWER HOSPITALIZATIONS FOR COVID-19 AND ALSO INFLUENZA LIKE ILLNESS, OBVIOUSLY PRETTY SIGNIFICANT DROP THEIR SENSE MARCH AND THAT’S BEEN PRETTY CONSISTENT THROUGHOUT MOST OF THE STATE, THEY ALSO SAY LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF CASES AND DO YOU HAVE A DECLINING TREND OF CASES, WE DO HAVE THAT, ONE THING THAT IS INTERESTING TO POINT OUT, IF YOU LOOK AT EARLY APRIL WHEN WE HIT THE TOP CASELOAD ON APRIL 3 AND YOU LOOK AT THE DATES AROUND THEIR YOU KIND OF GO TO BEGINNING OF APRIL AND FOR THE NEXT PROBABLY WEEK TO TEN DAYS EXCEPT FOR THE ONE SUNDAY YOU’RE PRETTY CONSISTENTLY HAD AT LEAST A THOUSAND CASES EVERY DAY NOW WE STARTED TO TEST MORE AND SO IT WAS KIND OF A LINEAR INCREASE FROM THE TESTING INCREASES BUT AT THE SAME TIME IF YOU LOOK IN THE LAST 10 – 14 DAYS, YOUR UNDER 1000 NEW CASES EVERY SINGLE DAY EXCEPT THE TIMES THERE WAS BACKLOG DATA DUMPS FROM THE LABS IN THE WINTER AND WE HAVE THE 1200 WE GOT LIKE 23000 TEST RESULTS SO IT WAS THE BIGGEST DATA DUMP THAT WE HAD AND WEAVE EXPANDING TESTING WERE THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF APRIL THAN WE DID IN THE FIRST TWO IN YOUR CONSISTENCY SEE IN LOWER NUMBERS IN TERMS OF NEW CASES THAT’S REALLY NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT INDICATOR, THE CRITERIA SAID YOU LOOK AT THE NEW CASE TREND OR THE POSITIVITY RATE TREND AND THE REASON WHY YOU WOULD DO THAT IS THE CASE TREND, IF YOU TEST MORE, YOU WILL FIND MORE WE KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE OUT THERE SO IS FORWARDED TEST MORE AND M MOR WE WILL FIND NEW CASES THAT’S NOT NECESSARILY A BAD THING, THE POSITIVITY RATE IS NEARLY SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WIDELY THIS IS A

CIRCULATING HOW AGGRESSIVELY IT CIRCULATED TO THE COMMUNITY, YOU LOOK OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS YOU’VE SEEN A CONSISTENT DECREASE, AVERAGE DECREASE IN THE POSITIVITY RATE THE LAST FOUR OR FIVE DAYS WE’VE BEEN A FOREIGN HALF, FIVE, 6%, JUST TO PUT THAT INTO PERSPECTIVE, NEW JERSEY IS UP 40 OR 50% OF ALL THE TEST TEST POSITIVE, EVEN NEW YORK HAS REALLY IMPROVED AND THERE STILL 25 – 30% SO YOU SEE WAY DIFFERENT NUMBERS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY WE HAD SOME OF THOSE DAYS WHERE WE WERE 15, WE WERE SETTLED INTO THE 10 – 12 – 13% AND A LOT OF THAT WAS DRIVEN BY MIAMI-DADE IN THE EARLY DAYS OF LATE MARCH EARLY APRIL, EVEN THE DATES POSITIVITY HAS GONE DOWN AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE TEST SITE IN PALM BEACH, THEY WERE OUT AT 18% PROBABLY TWO WEEKS AGO AND NOW THEY’RE CLOSER TO 10% THAT IS REALLY THE TREND THAT WE LIKE TO LOOK AT SO YOU QUALIFY EITHER WAY BUT I PREFER THE CASE POSITIVITY TREND IN THE FINAL CRITERIA, YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE CRISIS CARE WITH YOUR HOSPITAL SYSTEM, WE HAVE MORE BEDS AVAILABLE, WE HAVE MORE BEDS AVAILABLE TODAY IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA THEN ON MARCH 1, AND BY A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER IN MARCH 1 WAS KIND OF WHEN THE PANDEMIC WAS JUST GETTING UNDERWAY SO THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING, THE HOSPITALS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB, WE DONE A GREAT JOB OF MAKING SURE WE HAVE THE SPACE IF YOU HAD A SURGE OF PATIENTS, THOSE ARE THE GATING CRITERIA THAT THEY’RE SATISFIED, HERE YOU SEE THE INCREASE FROM MARCH UNTIL APRIL, THAT’S AVAILABLE BEDS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA, WE HAD UNDER 20% AVAILABLE AT THE BEGINNING OF MARCH AND TYPICALLY THESE HOSPITALS DO RUN 90% FULL, HERE WE’VE BEEN RUNNING PRETTY CONSISTENTLY BETWEEN 40 – 45% OF THE BEDS HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE OVER THE LAST FIVE OR SIX WEEKS THIS IS JUST GIVING YOU A SENSE OF WHERE FLORIDA IS AND HOW WE STACK UP FOR THE OTHER STATES, CASE RATE PER 100,000 OF THE POPULATION, WE TESTED MORE FREQUENTLY THAN TEXAS, I THINK THAT’S PROBABLY ONE OF THE REASONS THEY HAVE, CALIFORNIA AND US HAVE TESTED MORE THAN US BUT THEY’RE BIGGER SO I THINK WERE PROBABLY PRETTY SIMILAR AND YOU LOOK HOW THAT WOULD CHANGE FROM OTHER STATES, BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOW POSITIVITY RATE EVEN AS WE EXPANDED TESTING, WE HAVE NOT SEEN AN EXPLOSION OF NEW CASES WHICH IS A GOOD THING HOSPITALIZATION PER 100,000, YOU LOOK WITH FLORIDA IS FOR THROUGHOUT THIS OTHER STUFF, IF WE HAD 464,000 LIKE THEY SAY, THAT NUMBER WOULD BE LIKE 500, NOT 9.8 SO WOULD NOT — I FIGURE HOSPITALIZATION RATE IS SOMEWHERE ABOUT 6% OF EVERYONE THE TEST POSITIVE, MOST PEOPLE WERE FORECASTING ORIGINALLY A 1, THE HOSPITALIZATION RATE HAS GONE DOWN AND THE POSITIVE TEST START TO SEE MORE IN THE YOUNGER POPULATION AS 8% AND WHEN THEY’RE DOING THAT THEY’RE MUCH LESS LIKELY TO GET HOSPITALIZED IF THE UNDER 50 AND OF COURSE IF THEY DON’T HAVE A SIGNIFICANT CONDITION IS VERY, VERY LOW THERE IS ICU HOSPITALIZATION WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT, ICU BEDS, THAT’S A CRITICAL CARE THAT YOU NEED, WE ARE LOW ON THAT COMPARATIVE THIS IS INTERESTING, WERE MOVING FORWARD TO PHASE ONE AND WE WILL TREAT SOUTHEAST FLORIDA DIFFERENTLY, THINK THEY CAN GET TO PHASE ONE BECAUSE I DO THINK THEY ARE DECLINING BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE OTHER MAJOR METRO AREAS, MAJOR METRO, ORLANDO, JACKSONVILLE, TAMPA AND LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS COMPARED TO SOME OF THE OTHER STATES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, YOU’VE SEEN THAT THEY’VE DONE A REALLY GOOD JOB OF HAVING FEW HOSPITALIZATIONS PER 100,000 AND HAVING LOW FATALITY RATES PER 100,000 SO MY HATS OFF TO THOSE FOLKS BECAUSE I THINK THEY’VE DONE VERY, VERY WELL, IF YOU TOOK OUT SOUTHEAST FLORIDA AND DID THE OTHER 16 MILLION FOLKS AND DIVIDED IT BY CASES, HOSPITALIZATIONS OF THE TALLIES, WE WOULD BE INCREDIBLY LOW AND I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF GOOD WORK DONE, QUITE FRANKLY SOUTHEAST BOARD I JUST HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM NEW YORK CITY COMING DOWN, THAT IS THE NORMAL THING, PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW THAT THEY WERE BRINGING A VIRUS IN FEBRUARY AN EARLY MARCH AND THAT WAS REALLY THE SEATING OF THAT AND I THINK THE OTHER COMMUNITIES DID NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO THE SAME EXTENT WE HAVE HOSPITALIZATIONS, VERY SMALL, I WAS IN TAMPA, TAMPA GENERAL, I THINK THEY HAD 37 PEOPLE, HOSPITALIZED FOR COVID IN THE COUNTY, THE COUNTY IS LIKE 1.4 – 1.5 MILLION PEOPLE, INCREDIBLE THE PREDICTIONS WOULD’VE HAD THAT WAY MORE THOSE ARE GOOD TRENDS IN FATALITIES, SAME THING, PICTURE THEIR RATES ARE SO DRAMATICALLY LOWER FROM OTHER AREAS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES IF YOU LOOK OUTSIDE OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA, THE FIGHT TO PROTECT LIVES REALLY CENTERS ON THE

LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES WE HAVE DONE A LOT, I WAS ABLE TO GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND LOOK WITH THE PRESIDENT ON ISSUES FOR FLORIDA BUT THEY WERE IMPRESSED WITH WHAT WE HAVE DONE AND WANTED ME TOO GIVE A PRESENTATION SO WE DID DO THAT AND WE WERE VERY PROACTIVE FROM THE BEGINNING, NOT JUST IN LIMITING ACCESS, MAKING SURE THE STAFF HAD TO BE SCREENED FOR FEVER AND SICKNESS BEFORE THEY WENT IN BUT ALSO SENDING PEOPLE WHO KNEW ABOUT INFECTION CONTROL AND CAN ASCERTAIN THE NEEDS OF EACH FACILITY AND NOW WE HAVE NATIONAL GUARD GOING OUT AND DOING TESTING AT THESE PLACES WHICH IS FANTASTIC AND THEN JARED MOSCOWITZ, THE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DIRECTOR HAS PUSHED OUT 7 MILLION MASKS JUST TO LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES, 1 MILLION GLOVES, HALF A MILLION FACE SHIELDS, ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS OTHER WORKERS ARE PROTECTED AND THAT THEY’RE NOT INFECTING THE RESIDENCE IT’S A VERY TOUGH ISSUE BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE ASYMPTOMATIC STAFF GO IN THERE AND THEY CAN SPREAD IT TO THE OTHER STAFF IN THE SPREAD LIKE WILDFIRE WHEN THAT HAPPENS SO YOU OBVIOUSLY DON’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN BUT IF IT DOES AND YOU CAN IDENTIFY THE CLUSTER AND ISOLATE THEM BEFORE IT GETS THROUGHOUT THE NURSING HOME THEN THAT’S A GREAT THING THIS WILL CONTINUE TO BE ONE OF OUR TOP PRIORITIES, WE HAVE TO DO OUR RATE OF FATALITIES FOR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES IS WAY LESS THAN MANY OF THE OTHER STATES, WE REALLY SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE GIVEN OUR DEMOGRAPHICS BUT THIS HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO IT WHEN YOU LOOK AT DIFFERENT COUNTIES IN FLORIDA, I WOULD POINT OUT WHEN THEY REPORTED IS NOT THE SAME AS WHEN THEY ACTUALLY SUFFER THE TOTALITY SO THERE WAS A REPORT THE OTHER DAY WHERE YOU HAD MORE BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE DATES OF THE PATHOLOGY WHICH IS WHAT YOU NEED TO LOOK AT TO SPOT ANY TYPE OF TREND, THAT IS PUT UP BY DATE SO YOU SEE THE RUN-UP AS WE GET INTO APRIL AND THEN WE HAVE SEEN A DOWN TICK, SOME OF THOSE DAYS MAY GET BACKFILLED SO YOU MAY SEE MORE AS REPORTS COME IN, SOMETIMES THEY ARE HELD FOR FOUR OR FIVE DAYS BEFORE THE REPORTED TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH BUT THAT IS THE TRAJECTORY, OBVIOUSLY WE DON’T WANT TO SEE ANYTHING TALLIES, SAME TIME HAVING 40 OR SOMETHING IN A DAY FOR HOW BIGGER STATUS JUST COMPARE IT TO A BOROUGH IN NEW YORK CITY AND THEY WOULD HAVE HUNDREDS, SOMETIMES A DAY WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY UNFORTUNATE SO THE TESTING, PART OF OUR STRATEGY IN PHASE ONE IS TO EXPAND TESTING BEYOND WHAT WE READY DONE, WE HAVE PIONEERED THE CONCEPT OF WALK-UP TESTING, WE DID ALL THE DRIVE-THROUGH SITES WHICH WERE VERY IMPORTANT BUT WE KNEW THERE WERE UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES THAT COULD BENEFIT FROM HAVING A WALK-UP TESTING SITE SO WE HAVE A NUMBER OF THEM ACROSS THE STATE, BROWARD, DUVALL, LEON, PALM BEACH COUNTY AND WE HAVE A REVOLVING ONE IN ORANGE COUNTY WHICH IS GREAT, WE HAVE NEW ONES COMING ONLINE IN MIAMI-DADE AND RIVIERA BEACH AND THEN IN COLLIER COUNTY AND IMMOKALEE WHICH IS AN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITY, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE THAT AND IMMOKALEE, PEOPLE WILL WALK UP AND BE ABLE TO DO IT THERE WILL BE 11 OF THESE THINGS THROUGHOUT THE STATE, THAT IS BRINGING TESTING TO PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT BE SEEKING OUT TO TESTING, THE DRIVE-THROUGH SITES ARE GREAT BUT WE CANNOT FORCE ANYONE TO DO IT, THEY EITHER GO OR THEY DON’T, THESE WALK-UP SITES ARE IMPORTANT AND WE WANT TO SPOT TRENDS IN SOME OF THE UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES BECAUSE ONE YOU CAN MAYBE ISOLATE BUT TO TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE THAT IS ALREADY DONE, THIS IS A CONCEPT WE ROLLED OUT ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO, THEY WERE READY DONE 6300 AND DOING MANY MORE EVERY DAY WE APPRECIATE THE FOLKS WORKING HARD ON THAT THE DRIVE-THROUGH TESTING SITES WE HAVE THE STATE THAT SUPPORTS A NUMBER OF THEM THROUGHOUT THE STATE, WE WILL CONTINUE SUPPORTING ALL OF THOSE, I WILL HAVE NATIONAL GUARD CONTINUE TO BE OUT THERE SO T PEOPLE CAN BE TESTED, HARD ROCK, JACKSONVILLE, CB SMITH PARK IN BROWARD WHICH IS PROBABLY THE MOST POPULAR SITE ANYWHERE IN THE STATE YOU HAVE THE MARLINS STADIUM, YOU HAVE THE BUCK STADIUM, YOU HAVE THE SPRING TRAINING FACILITY IN WEST PALM BEACH AND THEN YOU HAVE THE ONE IN DELRAY BEACH, WHEN YOU HAVE THE TESTING AND MATTERS PALM BEACH HAD ABOUT 18 – 20 POSITIVE RATE, YOU PUT THE TWO TEST CENTERS AND MOVING THERE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE A DAY, ANOTHER POSITIVE RATE AND THINK IS 11% BECAUSE AS YOU EXPAND TESTING, MORE PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS AND YOU GET A BETTER SENSE OF HOW IT’S MOVING THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY SO I THINK THAT’S VERY SUCCESSFUL, I MADE THE POINT AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND THIS IS JUST THE FACT, ALL THE SITES HAVE THE CAPACITY TO DO 750 DRIVE-IN SWABS A DAY WE ARE NOT AT CAPACITY ON ANY OF THOSE AND IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS, WE DON’T DO MINORS BUT IF YOU’RE

18 OR OVER IN EUROPE SYMPTOMS, GO IF YOUR HEALTHCARE WORKER, FIRST RESPONDER AND YOU WANT TO GET TESTED, GO IF YOU ARE SOMEBODY WHO DOES NOT HAVE SYMPTOMS BUT THINK SHE MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED, GO AHEAD AND GO, WE DO HAVE THE CAPACITY AND HAVE NOT RUN ON ANY PLACES, IF WE OBVIOUSLY GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE DO WILL EXPAND ACCORDINGLY BUT THAT IS THE REALITY WE HAVE BEEN DOING IN PHASE ONE WE WANT TO DO MORE SITES FOR EXAMPLE THE CB SMITH SITE IS GREAT BUT THAT’S IN THE WESTERN PART OF BROWARD COUNTY, WHAT ABOUT SOMETHING CLOSER TO THE DOWNTOWN BUSINESS DISTRICT, SOMEONE IS GOING BACK TO WORK AND HAVE AN ISSUE AND WANT TO GET A QUICK TEST AND HAVE A PLACE TO GO, WILL PUT ONE IN FORT LAUDERDALE, WILL PUT ONE IN THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY, THEY’VE NOT HAD A SIGNIFICANT OUTBREAK COMPARED TO OTHER PARTS OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA BUT IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE ACCESS FOR FOLKS IN NORTHWEST FLORIDA, LEE COUNTY, THE LEE COLLIER BORDER MOST LIKELY, WILL ACTUALLY DO IT AT THE TWIN STADIUM, WILL DO IT AT THE MINNESOTA TWINS STADIUM AND PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO GO INTO THE PARKING LOT AND DO THAT AND WE WILL ALSO DO SARASOTA BECAUSE I THINK YOU DO NEED MORE TESTING, IMMUNITY HAS HAD NURSING HOME OUTBREAK SO HAVING THE CENTER MAY HELP, MAYBE WORKERS WILL GO, WERE SENDING NATIONAL GUARD IN THE AREA BUT I THINK IT WILL BE A VERY GOOD THING AND THEN IN MIAMI-DADE WILL HAVE A HYBRID DRIVE-IN AND WALKING SITE AT THE MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER SO THE PEOPLE THAT WANT TO WALK-UP CAN GO ON ONE SIDE AND PEOPLE THAT WANT TO DRIVE CAN GO ON THE OTHER SIDE ALL OF THESE WILL HAVE THE CAPACITY TO PROBABLY DO AT LEAST 750 TEST TODAY BECAUSE WE HAVE THE HIGH THROUGH LAB CONTRACTS, EVERYONE THAT COMES THROUGH THEIR WE CAN SEND TO SOME OF THE HOSPITALS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN TEST THEMSELVES AND GET GOOD RESULTS SO ALL OF THAT IS ON THE TABLE AND WE THINK THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT AS WE MOVE FORWARD, MORE LABS, THIS IS REALLY EXCITING, WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO PROCURE AN RV THAT HAS A MOBILE LAB INSIDE OF IT WE WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THE MOBILE LAB IN THE RV, DRIVE IT TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF FLORIDA AND THEN WE HAVE A 45 MINUTE TEST, I WAS WORKING AT THE WHITE HOUSE IN WORKING WITH JERRY KRISHNA, WE HAVE IT SET UP, WILL HAVE 15000 OF THESE TESTS, WILL BE ABLE TO DO 3500 A WEEK, YOU CAN GO TO A NURSING HOME AND HAVE ALL THE STAFF COME GET TESTED, PUT IN THE CARTRIDGES, THE RESIDENCE AND YOU DIDN’T ANSWER WITHIN AN HOUR SO YOU WOULD TALK ABOUT IDENTIFYING AND OUTBREAK AND KEEP IN THE CLUSTER CONTAINED, THIS WILL BE A HUGE TOOL S S S S THINK WE WILL BE USING IT FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS, NURSING HOMES AND SOME OF THE HIGH RISK AREAS BUT THAT CONCEPT OF HAVING A MOBILE SITE BECAUSE IT’S ONE THING TO HAVE THE NATIONAL GUARD SWAB PEOPLE, THEY STOPPED ASCENDED TO A LAB, WERE NOT ONLY BRINGING THE SWABS, WERE BRINGING THE LAB SO WE CAN GET THEM VERY QUICK RESULTS, WE HOPE TO HAVE THAT BY THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK AND START DEBUTING THAT VERY SOON BUT TO DO 3500 A WEEK OF SPOT TEST PARTICULARLY IN LAWN CARE TERM FACILITIES, THAT WILL BE A HUGE BOOM FOR OUR EFFORT TO PREVENT THIS THING FROM GETTING IN THE FACILITIES CONTACT TRACING, YOU’RE STARTING TO HEAR A LOT ABOUT IT, VERY FEW PEOPLE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS BUT I CAN TELL YOU THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND THE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT HAVE BEEN DOING THIS THE ENTIRE TIME, IN FACT ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE OUTBREAK HAS NOT BEEN A SIGNIFICANT OUTSIDE OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA IS BECAUSE THEY WERE DOING THE REALLY TOUGH WORK TO CONTACT TRACE, ISOLATE THE PEOPLE THAT TESTED POSITIVE AND IDENTIFY PEOPLE WHO WERE IN THE CONTEXT THAT MAY DEVELOP SYMPTOMS, THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THIS RELIGIOUSLY, THE SOUL TIME AND THIS WILL BE AWAY IF YOU’RE IN A SITUATION, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE FURTHER DOWN WE GO BUT IF YOU SEE AN OUTBREAK STARTING TO DEVELOP, YOU IDENTIFY THE PERSON TEST POSITIVE, TRACE THEIR CONTACTS AND IT’S LIKE PUTTING A PUZZLE TOGETHER, YOU DO IT AND YOU’RE ABLE TO HOPEFULLY CONTAIN AT LEAST SOMEWHAT, SOMETIMES ENTIRELY YOU CAN DO IT THROUGH CONTACT TRACING WE’VE ADDED A BUNCH OF EPIDEMIOLOGISTS THROUGH THIS BECAUSE WE KNEW IT WAS IMPORTANT AND WE HAVE SOME OF THE STUDENTS FROM THE VARIOUS MEDICAL OR PUBLIC HEALTH SCHOOLS AND WE WILL PROBABLY ADD MORE IF CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANT THAT THE CONTACT TRACING IS GOING TO CONTINUE IN THE STATE OF FLO FLORIDA, IT WAS ALWAYS PART OF THE STRATEGY, VERY FEW PEOPLE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT BECAUSE THEY JUST DON’T THINK THAT THEY QUITE UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS GOING ON AT THE TIME THIS SAVED A LOT OF SPREAD PARTICULARLY IN COMMUNITIES THAT DID NOT HAVE THE WIDESPREAD TRANSMISSION LIKE YOU SAW INDEED AND BROWDER WHAT IS PHASE ONE, PHASE ONE FOR US, WHEN WE WERE GOING ABOUT

THIS I RECEIVED INPUT FROM PHYSICIANS, HEALTHCARE EXECUTIVES, SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, ELECTED OFFICIALS, UNEMPLOYED FLORIDIANS WHO ARE HURTING, SMALL LAW ENFORCEMENT, WE HAD A TASK FORCE CONVENED THAT GOT A LOT OF IDEAS TOGETHER AND SUBMITTED TO ME, THERE’S A REPORT THAT I HAVE READ AND INCORPORATED SOME OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS, A ALTHOUGH SOME TO WHAT WERE GOING TO DO TODAY, WERE GOING TO PUT THAT OUT PUBLICLY SOMETIME TODAY OR TOMORROW MORNING AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THAT REPORT, THIS IS SOMETHING WHERE WE WANTED TO GET IT RIGHT I WOULD’VE LIKED TO ANNOUNCED WHAT WERE DOING TWO WEEKS AGO IF IT COULD BUT I WANTED THE DATA, I WANTED THE FACTS, I’VE BEEN ABLE TO CONSULT WITH SOME OF THE TOP PHYSICIANS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, SOME ARE THE BEST HOSPITALS IN THE WORLD ABOUT THE OUTBREAK, ABOUT WHERE THEY SEE THIS GOING IN THE NEXT STEPS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN SO THAT ADVICE FROM PHYSICIANS IN THE INPUT WAS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT ON WHAT I DECIDED TO DO HERE IS PHASE ONE THIS REALLY TRACKS WITH THE PRESIDENT PUT OUT FOR PHASE ONE, THE SCHOOLS SENSOR AND DISTANCE LEARNING WILL REMAIN IN DISTANCE LEARNING, WE ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW VISITORS TO THE LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES, I AM WILLING TO REEVALUATE IF WE HAVE ENOUGH RAPID TEST WHERE SOMEONE CAN COME IN TEST AND IF THEY TEST NEGATIVE AND WANT TO SEE THEIR PARENTS THEN MAYBE THEY LET THE MEN IT WILL REQUIRE THAT CAPACITY BEFORE WE RELAX, MAYBE OF 70 TAKES ANTIBODIES TEST AS WELL THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO GO SHUTTING DOWN THE VISITATION, WE HAD TO DO IT BECAUSE WE DID NOT WANT TO HAVE AN OUTBREAK BUT IT IS TOUGH YOU HAVE PEOPLE THERE THAT DON’T HAVE HUMAN CONTACT WITH THE FAMILY THIS IS BEEN GOING ON NOW FOR ALMOST TWO MONTHS SO IF THERE’S WAYS THAT WE CAN DO IT SAFELY, I WOULD CERTAINLY REVISIT I THINK THE MAIN CHANGES ARE THE ELECTIVE SURGERIES ARE ABLE TO RESUME AND THAT WILL TAKE PLACE A WIDE AND PEOPLE TALK ABOUT ELECTIVE SURGERIES AS IF IT’S COSMETIC SURGERY THAT DOES NOT NEED TO HAPPEN, ELECTIVE IN MOST CASES MEANS AND SELECTIVE EXACTLY WHEN YOU SCHEDULE IT BUT IT’S USUALLY SOMETHING YOU NEED TO GET DONE I WANT THAT TO DO WE TURN BACK ON, THE REQUIREMENTS OF THAT IS THAT THE HOSPITALS REPRESENT AND CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN A SURGE CAPACITY IF WE SEE AN UPTICK IN COPING THAT THEY HAVE ADEQUATE PPE AND DON’T RELY ON THE STATE FOR THAT AND THAT THEY ARE WILLING, ABLE TO PROACTIVELY WORK WITH THE LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES AND NURSING HOMES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES TO PREVENT OUTBREAKS I THINK THEY WILL ALL BE WILLING TO DO THAT THE PRESIDENT’S GUIDELINES TALKED ABOUT LARGE VENUES AND THEY MENTIONED RESTAURANTS, MOVIE THEATERS AND CHURCHES, I NEVER CLOSE CHURCHES, WE RELIED ON VOLUNTARY SOCIAL DISTANCING, I DECLINED TO GO FROM MOVIE THEATERS, I THINK IT’S PRACTICALLY DIFFICULT TO DO THE SOCIAL DISTANCING INDOOR ENVIRONMENTS ARE MORE LIKELY FOR TRANSMISSION SO EVEN THOUGH YOU COULD’VE DONE THAT IN PHASE ONE I THINK PRUDENCE DICTATES THAT WE GO A LITTLE SLOW ON THAT, THE RESTAURANTS WHAT WE WILL DO IS ALLOW OUTDOOR SEATING WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING SO YOU NEED 6 FEET FEET APART FROM THE TABLES AND WITH INDOORS THEY CAN DO 25% CAPACITY WITH THE CDC RECOMMENDED SPACING I THINK OUTDOOR TRANSMISSION AS FAR AS WE’VE SEEN HAS BEEN MORE DIFFICULT THAN THE INDOOR CLIMATE CONTROL TRANSMISSION SO I THINK BEING OUTSIDE IF YOU’RE 6 FEET AWAY, TO ME THAT WOULD NOT BE ANY MORE RISKY THAN GOING TO COSTCO OR SOME OF THE THINGS FLORIDIANS HAVE DONE THROUGHOUT THIS TIME, I THINK IT’S A WAY TO GET PEOPLE AND MAY REDUCE DENSITY AND SOME OF THE GROCERY STORES, SOME OF THESE THINGS ARE REALLY, REALLY PACKED SO MAYBE IT WILL REDUCE DENSITY BY GIVING PEOPLE ANOTHER OPTION AND OBVIOUSLY WE WANT THESE FOLKS TO GET BACK IN BUSINESS IF THEY CAN DO IT SAFELY AND I WAS CONVINCED THAT THIS IS SAFE, AND MEDICAL FOLKS RECOMMEND THE OUTDOORS AND THEY THOUGHT THAT MADE MORE SENSE SO WERE DOING THAT, THE TASK FORCE RECOMMENDED 50% CAPACITY INSIDE, I THINK WE’LL START WITH 25 WITHOUT DURING SEE HOW IT GOES RETAIL CAN GO FOR INDOOR WE HAD A LOT OF RETAIL OPEN, HOME DEPOT, I WAS IN BROWARD, THEY’RE ALL LINED UP WITH THEIR FACEMASK, 6 FEET APART OUTSIDE, SOME PEOPLE COME OUT, NEW PEOPLE GOING, THERE’S A LOT OF PROCESS BEING DONE ALREADY THE REST OF THE OTHER RETAIL WAS NEVER CLOSE DOWN ON ANY OF THE ORDERS, PEOPLE WOULD DO CURBSIDE DELIVERY, PHONE ORDERS BUT THE ESSENTIAL ACTIVITY WAS NOT CONSIDERED GOING INTO A STORE AND CONGREGATING FOR RETAIL AND LESS THAN RETAIL AS BEING ESSENTIAL BUSINESS, WERE NOW RELAXING THAT IN ALLOWING 25% INDOOR SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO DO CURBSIDE, EVERYTHING THEY’VE BEEN DOING AND HAVE A 25% INDOOR HAVE TO FOLLOW THE CDC RECOMMENDATION FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING

WE WILL NOT CHANGE THE BARS, THAT WAS RECOMMENDED NOT TO CHANGE THE BARS, THEY SAID YOU COULD DO THE GEMS IN PHASE ONE, I’M GOING TO LOOK TO SEE WHAT SOME OTHER STATES HOW THEY’VE DONE AND WHAT THE RESULTS ARE, I DO WANT PEOPLE TO GET IN TO JIM’S AND IF I GET SOME GUIDELINES THAT MAKE SENSE AND I SEE OTHER STATES HAVE DONE AND IT’S OKAY THEN WE WILL OBVIOUSLY REEVALUATE AND I WOULD SAY THE SAME WITH SOME OF THE PERSONAL SERVICES LIKE THE HAIRDRESSERS, A LOT OF THE FOLKS OF SMALL BUSINESS FOLKS, THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SELL A LOT OF PRODUCTS ON CURBSIDE BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL BUSINESS OR ACTIVITY TO HAVE THE FACE-TO-FACE CLOSE CONTACT, I THINK THERE MAY BE WAYS THAT WE’VE GOTTEN IDEAS OF HOW YOU CAN DO TO MAKE A LOW RISK AND A LOOK TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN OTHER STATES BUT PHASE ONE WILL NOT INCLUDE THAT PHASE ONE IN TERMS OF VULNERABLE POPULATION WE HAVE BEEN MESSAGING THIS SINCE EARLY MARCH, IF YOU’RE 65 AND UP AND HAVE A SIGNIFICANT UNDERLYING CONDITION, YOU NEED TO AVOID CROWDS, AVOID CLOSE CONTACT WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD AND STAY HOME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN THIS IS A DISEASE IF YOU LOOK AT OUR FERTILITY RATES WE HAVE AT LEAST 93% OF THE FATALITIES I BELIEVE ARE 55 AND OVER, CLOSE TO 85 OR 65 A AND OVER THE RISK IS GREATER IN THESE GROUPS AND WE ADVISE THEM TO CONTINUE TO URGE CAUTION AND HOW THEY INTERACT THERE’S A LOT OF SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT WILL BE GOING ON, RESTAURANT, RETAIL STORES, OBVIOUSLY THE ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES WE’VE BEEN HAVING WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING I WOULD TELL PEOPLE THE MOST IMPORTANT SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT WE CAN DO IS DISTANCING THE VULNERABLE POPULATION FROM THOSE WHO ARE NOT IF YOU ARE NOT VULNERABLE YOU MAY BE A CARRIER AND NOT HAVE SYMPTOMS OR NOT KNOW IT AND YOUR RISK TO PASS IT ALONG SO IF WE CAN DO THAT, WE WILL SEE A LOT OF PROGRESS BEING MADE AS WE GO FORWARD, WE WILL CONTINUE FROM THE CDC GUIDELINES ABOUT PHYSICAL DISTANCING WHEN IN PUBLIC, SOCIAL GROUPS, TEN OR FEWER, WE WILL CONTINUE DOING THAT, WERE RECOMMENDING FACE MASK AND IF YOU FACE-TO-FACE INTERACTIONS PARTICULAR IN THE WORKPLACE AND IF YOU CAN’T ADEQUATELY SOCIAL DISTANCE , WERE NOT GOING TO FIND PEOPLE IF THEY DON’T DO IT, I THINK SOMETIMES IF YOU’RE GOING BY YOURSELF BY A DOG YOU PROBABLY DON’T NEED TO FACEMASK, IF YOU’RE IN A FACE-TO-FACE BUSINESS, THAT HAS GOT TO BE A BUSINESS PRACTICE AND IF YOU’RE IN SITUATIONS JUST IN THE PUBLIC WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP THE DISTANCE THEN THIS IS A GOOD THING TO BE ABLE TO DO FLORIDA’S NEXT STEPS, WE ARE GOING TO BE DATA DRIVEN AND FOCUS ON THE FACTS, THE THINGS THAT WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT TO GO TO PHASE TWO ARE GOING TO BE THE THINGS THAT BROUGHT US TO MITIGATION IN THE FIRST PLACE, PRIMARILY HOSPITAL CAPACITY AND HOSPITAL RESOURCES, IF WE START SEEING CASES WHERE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING INTO THE HOSPITAL AND WE THINK IT MIGHT BE A SURGE THAT THEY CAN’T HANDLE, THAT WILL BE SOMETHING THAT WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT AND THAT WILL BE SOMETHING THAT WERE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT, AS LONG AS THERE IS CONTINUED AVAILABILITY, AS LONG AS WERE NOT SEEN A FLOOD OF PEOPLE INTO THE HOSPITAL, THAT IS OBVIOUS HE GOING TO BE GOOD PROGRESS, WE WILL CONTINUE TO LOOK AT THE RATE OF POSITIVITY FOR OUR TEST WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, USE ALL THE EXPANDED CAPACITY THEY WERE GOING HAVE WE THINK WERE GONNA BE ABLE TO DO 30 – 40000 TEST TODAY, I DON’T KNOW IF THE DEMAND IS THERE FOR THAT BUT WE THINK WILL HAVE THE CAPACITY TO DO THAT ON DAY ONE WHEN WE GET INTO NEXT WEEK WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU DO 40000 TEST, YOU PROBABLY WILL FIND PEOPLE WHO ARE ASYMPTOMATIC AND POSITIVE HE WILL NOT NEED TO BE POSSIBLE LIES AND NOT AT RISK FOR FATALITY YOU WILL FIND THOSE FOLKS AND YOU MAY SEE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF CASES GO UP YOU MAY SEE OUT OF 40000 YOU MAY SEE 2000, WE NEVER HAD 2000 NEW 40 CASES, YOU MAY SEE THAT, PEOPLE WILL PROBABLY WRITE THAT CASES ARE SPIKING, THAT’S NOT A GOOD WAY TO LOOK AT IT, THESE ARE CASES THAT ARE THERE AND WERE IDENTIFIED WITH AGGRESSIVE TESTING, THE RATE WOULD STILL BE 5% IF YOU ARE DOING IT IN LOOKING AT THAT SO WERE LOOKING AT THE POSITIVITY RATE MORE SO THAN A WRONG NUMBER OF CASES, THE WRONG NUMBER OF CASES DOES HAVE A RELATIONSHIP TO HOW MUCH ARE TESTING WE HAD 530 NEW CASES YESTERDAY BUT WE ONLY HAD EIGHT OR 9000 TEST RESULTS WERE AS WE HAD OTHER DAYS WERE 800 NEW CASES AND WE HAD 15000 TEST RESULTS SO LOOKING AT IT THAT WAY IS

SOMETHING THAT WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT AND THOSE WILL BE THE TYPE OF METRICS THAT WERE LOOKING AT AND WE WILL ALSO LOOK AT SOME OF THIS IN DRAMATIC SYMPTOMS IN TERMS OF UC LIKE HOSPITALIZATION, PEOPLE GOING TO THE ER VISIT FOR THINGS LIKE COUGH OR FEVER, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WERE GOING TO BE LOOK OUT FOR SURE SO WE ARE GOING TO BE SAFE, SMART AND WERE GOING TO DO THIS STEP-BY-STEP WE ARE TRYING TO BUILD A FOUNDATION FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA, WE DID NOT ASK TO BE PUT IN THE SITUATION, THIS WAS THRUST UPON US LARGELY BECAUSE OF THE MALFEASANCE OF THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY WE ARE WHERE WE ARE BUT I THINK WE CAN GET THROUGH IT, I THINK WE CAN BUILD A FOUNDATION AND I’M REMINDED OF AN OLD STORY, AND ANTIDOTE FROM THE MIDDLE AGES WERE YOU HAD THREE STONEMASONS, THEY WERE BUILDING AND WORKING STONE IN GERMANY, HARD AT WORK YET AND OBSERVER THE ASK THE FIRST MASON WHAT HE WAS DOING, THE FIRST MASON SAID SIR I AM SHAPING STONE HE THEN ASKED THE SAME QUESTION TO THE SECOND MASON IN THE SECOND MASON SAID SIR, I’M MAKING A WALL HE FINALLY GOT AROUND TO ASKING THE THIRD MASON IN THE THIRD MASON WAS VERY EXCITED AND PROUD TO PROCLAIM I AM CREATING A CATHEDRAL, THE CATHEDRAL THAT WE ARE BUILDING TODAY IS A STATE THAT IS HEALTHY, SAFE, PROSPEROUS AND FREE WE CAN DO IT, GOD BLESS YOU ALL PINKY VERY MUCH >> YOU LISTED A COUPLE OF BENCHMARKS, HOW LONG DOES THE CURRENT TREND NEED TO STAY IN PLACE WITHOUT THE THINGS HAPPENING BEFORE YOU GO TO MORE RESTAURANTS, BARS AND HAIRDRESSERS, EVEN YOU LOOK LIKE YOU NEED A HAIRCUT >> I NEED IT WORSE THAN ANYTHING, I HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINCE FEBRUARY IT IS REALLY INTERESTING ABOUT HOW SOME OF THESE TALKING HEADS ON TV, PARTICULARLY THE ONES THAT DON’T WANT ANYONE TO GO BACK TO WORK, HOW COMES THEY LOOK SO CLEAN SHAVED THEY LOOK SO NICE AND KEPT, HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN IF THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO GET A HAIRCUT, G.I WONDER WHAT THEY’RE DOING THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE A FIRM TIME, I THOUGHT ABOUT DOING IT THAT WAY BUT WE LOOK AT THE DATA ON AN HOURLY BASIS, ON A DAILY BASIS, MY HOPE WOULD BE EACH PHASE WERE THINKING ABOUT WEEKS, WERE NOT THINK ABOUT MONTHS, AND FOR MAKING PROGRESS, WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO PUT PEOPLE BACK TO WORK IN A SAFE, SMART AND STEP-BY-STEP WAY BUT IT’S GOING TO BE DATA DRIVEN, BECAUSE WE HAVE 50 STATES, LABORATORIES OF DEMOCRACY, WERE GONNA BE ABLE TO LOOK TO SEE THAT THERE ARE SOME STATES THAT DONE IT DIFFERENT THERE ARE SOME STATES — I THINK I DELIBERATELY AIRED ON THE SIDE OF TAKING MEASURED STEPS, KIND OF EVEN BABY STEPS TO RETURN TO NOT NORMAL WHERE WE WERE BUT TO START US ON THE ROAD TO A BRIGHTER DAY AND I THINK THAT’S THE RIGHT APPROACH, THERE’S OTHER FOLKS THAT WERE WAY MORE AGGRESSIVE IN OTHER STATES THAT ARE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING FOR ANOTHER TWO MONTHS, I’M NOT SURE THAT WILL WORK OUT WELL BUT WE WILL BE DOING EVERY DAY, EVERY HOUR, WATCHING THIS, TALKING WITH FOLKS, I REALLY LIKE THE TRENDS PARTICULARLY OUTSIDE OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA, IF YOU LOOK OUTSIDE OF O SOUTHEAST QUARTER, YOU SEE A DOWNWARD MOVEMENT AND IT WON’T HAPPEN AS QUICKLY AS IT DID FOR ORANGE OR HILLSBORO OR SOME OF THE OTHERS BUT I DO THINK IT WILL HAPPEN, THEY WORKED REALLY HARD, WE WORKED GREAT TOGETHER AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT >> GOVERNOR, CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE — YOU ARE CHOKING UP ABOUT HOW YOUR DAUGHTER HAS NOT BEEN HELD BY HER GRANDPA’S — >> IT IS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE INCLUDING ME THE STUFF THAT WE LOOK AT, WE LOOK AT WHO GETS INFECTED, THAT STINKS TO GET INFECTED WITH THIS THING, THE VAST MAJORITY HAVE RECOVERED, NOT EVEN CLOSE WHICH IS A GOOD THING, SOMEONE ENDS UP IN THE HOSPITAL, THAT IS NOT GOOD, I KNOW SOME PEOPLE THAT RAN HAD SERIOUS SERIOUS HOSPITAL STAYS FORTUNATELY PULLED THROUGH AND WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO DON’T MAKE IT WHICH IS VERY, VERY SAD I THINK WE WERE CONSUMED WITHOUT FOR SO MUCH OF THIS BUT I THINK PROBABLY SINCE SHE WAS BORN IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS, IT IS OCCURRED TO ME THAT NONE OF MY FAMILY HAS SEEN HER SHE HAS NOT BEEN HELD BY A SINGLE PERSON IN ANY OF OUR FAMILIES MY WIFE AND KIDS, THEY HAVE NOT LEFT THE HOUSE SINCE FEBRUARY EXCEPT TO GIVE BIRTH, WE HAVE NOT JUST GONE TO A PARK AS A FAMILY, WE HAVE NOT JUST GONE AND HAVE LUNCH SOMEWHERE AS A

FAMILY SO THE LITTLE THINGS THAT I THINK HAVE CHANGED HAS REALLY HAD AN IMPRESSION ON HE I THINK ABOUT KIDS NOT BEING ABLE TO COMPETE IN SPORTS, I THINK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT FAMILIES USED TO DO AND TAKE FOR GRANTED, THOSE ARE MOMENTS THAT YOU CANNOT GET BACK AND THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I’M CONVINCED THAT WE CAN TAKE THIS STEP, WE WILL BE SMART, WILL BEAST SAFE INTO A STEP-BY-STEP BUT WE SHOULD HAVE HOPE, WERE VERY RESOURCEFUL, WERE VERY INNOVATIVE, WE CAN GET THIS DONE, IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, IF THERE WAS A MAGIC THING I FLIP THE SWITCH AND SAY EVERYTHING’S FINE, I WOULD DO IT, TRUST ME IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY, WE NEED TO GET THERE AND I’D LIKE TO BE ABLE TO GET INTO A SITUATION WHERE HER GRANDPARENT’S CAN COME SEE HER >> WHAT DOES PHASE II LOOK LIKE AND HOW MANY PHASES >> THERE’S THREE PHASES ACCORDING TO THE WHITE HOUSE GUIDANCE, I THINK WE WILL USE THAT AS OUR ROADMAP I DEPARTED FROM THAT ON THE MOVIE THEATERS, WE WILL NOT DO MOVIE THEATERS, THEY SAID YOU COULD THERE ARE ELECTIVE SURGERIES IS A LITTLE MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN WHAT THEY HAD, THEY ONLY WANTED OUTPATIENT BUT SINCE WE HAVE SO MUCH HOSPITAL SPACE WE BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN DO INPATIENT AND STILL ACCOMMODATE ANY PATIENTS THAT WOULD COME IN FOR COVID-19 WE WILL DO THE SAME THING, I’D HAVE TO LOOK AT IT BUT I THINK YOU WOULD DO MORE, MAYBE LIMITED SEATING AND BARS BUT NOT HAVE PEOPLE FIRING THEM TOGETHER, YOU WOULD DO SOME SOCIAL DISTANCING OF SOME OF THE LARGER VENUES, I WOULD LIKE TO GET TO A POINT, I’M NOT SAYING WE’LL GET IT IN MAY I’VE HELPED RECRUIT, I WANTED THE WRESTLING TO BE FILMED IN ORLANDO, I WANT THEM TO DO WRESTLEMANIA, THEY WERE GONNA DO WRESTLEMANIA AND — I WANT THEM TO INVEST IN 40, WE GOT UFC TO COME TO JACKSONVILLE, THERE WILL NOT BE FANS BUT IT WILL BE A GOOD EVENT FOR PEOPLE, I WORK WITH PHIL MICKELSON ON MAKING SURE THEY HAVE WHAT THEY NEED FOR THE TIGER WOODS MATCH THERE WILL BE A LOT OF GOOD STUFF GOING ON BUT I DON’T THING WERE PROBABLY READY TO HAVE FANS BUT I THINK IF THE TRENDS ARE GOOD, AS YOU GET INTO JUNE AND JULY THERE IS A WINDOW TO HAVE SOME FANS, YOU WILL HAVE EVERYONE PACKED IN BUT A 90-DEGREE WEATHER IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA IF YOU’RE OFTEN SOMEONE IS 10 FEET AWAY AND YOU WANT TO WATCH A BALLGAME OR SOMETHING, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DO THAT, THIS IS SOMETHING WE’LL HAVE TO DO, WILL BE DRIVEN BY THE FACTS AND THE DATA BUT I THINK MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL COMING BACK, I’M HEARING THIS, THAT WILL BE EXCITING FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE AND I THINK THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF POSSIBILITY, LET’S BE RESOURCEFUL AND CREATIVE >> WE ARE ACCEPTING DADE, BROWARD AND PALM BEACH, WE CONSULTED WITH THEM ON THIS, THIS IS THE DIRECTION THAT THEY WANT TO GO, THEY JUST DID A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, YESTERDAY WAS WITH THEIR PARKS AND MARINAS AND GOLF COURSES WERE OPEN, THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES THAT DID NOT HAVE A LOT OF THAT OPEN, WE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE, THEY PRIDE GOLF, BOATING AND I’M NOT SEEING ANY OUTBREAKS TIED TO PLAYING GOLF, I THINK IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION TO GET PEOPLE AT LENGTH AND THE ABILITY TO DO SOME OF THOSE THINGS SO WE LEFT THEM OUT, THE BREAST APPLIES STATEWIDE BECAUSE OF THE NUMBERS AND ALL THE OTHER STATES AND PLACES, I FIND A HEART THAT A LOCAL GOVERNMENT COULD GO AGAINST THE ADVICE OF THE BEST DOCTORS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA WHEN I’M SITTING THERE CLEVELAND CLINIC AND SITTING THERE ORLANDO HEALTH AND WHEN I’M THERE AT TAMPA GENERAL AND ALL THESE FREE NONPHYSICIANS SAY WE PASSED THE PEAK, WERE READY FOR THE NEXT STEP AND DOES HAVE SOME LOCAL OFFICIAL DO IT YOU WENT AGAINST MEDICAL JUDGMENT AND AGAINST WHAT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE MEDICAL ECONOMY I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN, WE JUST DID IT AND WILL SEE HOW IT WORKS, PRETTY CONFIDENT >> IF IT GOES UP IN PHASE ONE AND YOU HAVE MORE CASES, WHAT POINT DO YOU READ IF YOU REASSESS, WILL WE GO BACK TO A LOCKDOWN IF THE CASES GO UP IN 9015 – 20% >> IF THEY WENT UP TO 20%, WE’VE NEVER HAD 20% EVEN WHEN WE WERE TESTING IN THE HOSPITALS, YOU ARE REALLY ONLY TESTING THE PEOPLE WHO WERE REALLY SICK AND ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL I DON’T THINK THAT’S LIKELY BUT FOR ME TOO REEVALUATE ANY OF THE STEPS I WOULD HAVE TO BE CONVINCED THAT THOSE STEPS ARE CAUSING THE CHANGE IN POSITIVITY SOMETIMES THERE’S CONNECTIONS THAT GET THROWN OUT PEOPLE WERE SO UPSET, NONPORTABLE THROUGHOUT ABOUT JACKSONVILLE MAYOR WHO IS DOING A GREAT JOB ALLOWING PEOPLE TO WALK ON THE BEACH TWO WEEKS AGO THEY SAID THIS WOULD BRING THE WORLD DOWN HAVE YOU LOOKED HOW MANY CASES DO WHILE COUNTY HAS HAD IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, THEY 1 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE COUNTY, I DON’T THINK THEY HAD VERY MANY, I THINK IT’S BEEN VERY LOW FOR A COUNTY THAT BIG SO PEOPLE WILL SAY THIS AND THERE’S NO CONNECTION I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IF THERE’S

SOMETHING BEING DONE THAT IS SPARKING SOME TYPE OF OUTBREAK THEN OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO REEVALUATE BUT I WOULD NOT SAY WE SHOULD JUST RESTRICT ACTS BECAUSE WHY HAPPEN BECAUSE THERE IS NO CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO OF THOSE THINGS ONE THING I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW AS WE GO FORWARD, YOU STUDY ALL THE SUPER SPREADING EVENTS THAT HAVE SPREAD LIKE WILD FOR, THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS IN COMMON THERE’S A BIG FUNERAL IN ALBANY GEORGIA, YET A SUPER SPREADER AND THE FUNERAL IS YOU’RE GOING TO BE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH PEOPLE, YOU WILL BE HUGGING AND KISSING, IT’S EMOTIONAL, CRYING, ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS AND THERE’S A LOT A VERY CLOSE CONTACT, THIS SPREAD LIKE WILDFIRE THROUGHOUT THE FUNERAL, INFECTED A BUNCH OF PEOPLE AND YOU HAD A LARGE NUMBER OF FATALITIES JUST FROM THAT FUNERAL IN ALBANY GEORGIA, YOU LOOK AT THE NEW ROCHELLE SUPER SPREADER, HE WAS SOMEBODY GOING TO RELIGIOUS SERVICES, VERY CLOSE, I THINK HE WENT TO A BUSINESS CONFERENCE, HE WAS DOING A BUNCH OF THINGS THAT WERE REALLY CLOSE CONTACT WITH OTHER FOLKS AND SO AS WE GO FORWARD, THE CHOIR IN WASHINGTON STATE, YET ACQUIRE IN WASHINGTON STATE AND THEY WERE SITTING THERE SINGING FOR AN HOUR BUT WHEN YOU’RE DOING THAT, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SNEEZE OR COUGH, YOU’RE PUTTING OUT DROPLETS A BUNCH GOT INFECTED, THOSE OF THE TYPES OF INTERACTIONS THAT WE REALLY NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT SO EVENTUALLY WE WILL DO CONVENTIONS AND THINGS, HOW WILL THAT WORK BECAUSE IF YOU’RE IN A BUSINESS CONVENTION IN YOUR BROWN PEOPLE AND TALKING FOR HOURS AND YOUR CLOSE, THAT DEFINITELY IS HIGHER RISK, YOU WILL HAVE TO THINK CLEARLY ABOUT HOW YOU’RE DOING THIS >> A COUPLE BULLET POINTS ON THE SCREEN OF BUSINESSES THAT CAN BE OPEN AND BUSINESSES THAT CAN BE LOOKED CLOSE, A LOT OF BUSINESS OWNERS ARE WATCHING THIS SAME NIGHT BUSINESS WAS ON THAT LIST, AND MY STRESS TO BE OPEN OR CLOSED — >> THERE’S NO GRAY AREA, WE WILL PUT THE ORDER OUT, THE ORDER CONTINUES THE ESSENTIAL BUSINESS FRAMEWORK, ANYONE WHO IS UNDER THAT FRAMEWORK IS GOOD TO GO AND IT ALLOWS RESPONSIBLE ACTIVITY TO INCLUDE THESE NEW THINGS LIKE THE RETAIL, SOME OF LIKE THE OTHER ONES IF YOU WERE GOOD BEFORE, YOU’RE GOOD NOW MY ORIGINAL ORDER DID NOT CLOSE BUSINESSES WHEN WE DID THAT WHAT WE DID WE LIMITED CERTAIN ACTIVITIES SO IF YOU OWN A HAIR SALON, I WOULD NOT BE ABLE AS IS FLIRTY AND TO GO WHEN AND HOW CLOSE CONTACT INSIDE YOUR SALON AND GET THE HAIRCUT BECAUSE YOU’RE TRYING TO REDUCE INTERACTIONS YOU CAN SELL YOUR PRODUCT INTO CURBSIDE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DID THAT THAT IS KIND OF WHERE WERE AT, A LOT OF THOSE BUSINESSES RETAIL NEVER ACTUALLY HAD TO CLOSE, THEY COULD DO CURBSIDE, THIS ALLOWS FOR TRAFFIC WHICH IS A GOOD THING, THE PERSONAL SERVICES IS SOMETHING WE’RE LOOKING UP, I WENT TO MAKE SURE WERE DOING IT IN A WAY THAT IS SAFE >> WHAT DOES LOCAL GOVERNMENT HAVE ON RESTRICTING THEIR COMMUNITY >> WHAT WE DID WAS ACCEPTED DADE, BROWARD AND PALM BEACH AND WE WILL WORK CONSTRUCTIVELY WITH THEM TO GET THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO GO AND THESE ARE THE STATE RULES, WE DID NOT SPECIFICALLY PREEMPT LOCAL GOVERNMENT BUT LIKE I TOLD TROY OR ACTUALLY WASN’T TROY, WHO ASKED ME THAT, I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY HARD OUTSIDE OF SOUTHEAST QUARTER, THEY’RE NOT INCLUDED BUT IF THEY WERE YOU MAY MAKE AN ARGUMENT YOU CAN GO TO SOME OF THESE PLACES THAT HAVE SUCH LOW RATES WERE ALL THE MAIN PHYSICIANS ARE SAYING WE NEED TO GO TO PHASE ONE TO SAY THAT THESE MODEST STEPS ARE SOMEHOW NOT ACCE ACCEPTABLE, THAT’S GOING AGAINST MEDICAL JUDGMENT AND I DON’T THINK THEY WILL WANT TO DO, I’M CONFIDENT THIS WILL BE A GOOD ROADMAP, I WANT TO GET SOUTHEAST FLORIDA ON THE BOARD AND I WANT TO GIVE WOMEN A SITUATION, THEY ARE CLOSE IN THE LEADERSHIP, AND A GREAT LEADERSHIP, THE TRADERS, THE MAYORS, WE WORK VERY CLOSELY TOGETHER, HE HAS HAD A LOT ON HIS PLATE, HE IS EFFECTIVELY LIKE A GOVERNOR IN MANY RATES BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALMOST 3 MILLION PEOPLE, THAT’S BIGGER THAN A LOT OF STATES WE ARE DOING THAT AND I THINK WILL BE ABLE TO GET THEM THERE RELATIVELY SOON BUT THAT’S GOING TO BE A COLLABORATIVE PROCESS AND I THINK WERE BETTER WHEN WE DO BOTTOM-UP AND WORK TOGETHER, I THINK THAT’S PROBABLY THE BEST WAY MUNDANE BROWARD AND PALM BEACH ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN FLORIDA’S FUTURE, THEY WERE ALL DOING SO WELL BEFORE THIS HAPPENED YOU DRIVE IN MIAMI AND YOU CANNOT MOVE 10 FEET WITHOUT SEEING A CRANE SOMEWHERE, IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE, YOU LOOK AT ALL THE BUSINESS THAT WAS GOING INTO BROWARD, AND THE SPIRIT AIRLINES AND ALL THESE GREAT THINGS, OF COURSE PALM BEACH HAS A LOT TO OFFER AS WE SEE WEALTH GOING DOWN THERE WE WENT TO GET THEM GOING, I THINK WE HAVE A GOOD PATH TO DO

IT BUT IT’S GOING TO BE IN A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT TIMETABLE THAN THE REST OF THE STATE, I’M IN A GO HOME AND SEE MY FAMILY BUT GOD BLESS YOU GUYS N
