covid coronavirus

After a muted holiday weekend — which saw both measured celebrations and packed crowds — the country faces a deep coronavirus crisis as cases continue to climb and more hospitals report they’re nearing capacity.

This week marks about two months since many states kicked off their reopening plans — which now officials across the country say came too quickly.  In Florida, officials shut multiple beaches throughout the state hoping to avoid July 4 crowds. The state reported 9,999 new coronavirus cases Sunday, bringing Florida’s total to more than 200,000 infections.
