Apparently, this season of the Walking Dead is brought to you by the Sunshine State.

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday morning that Florida is moving into full Phase 3 of its reopening.
The order specifically lifts COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants.
Restaurants can now operate at a minimum of 50% capacity — meaning they are fully open. Gov. DeSantis says if local governments try to restrict the reopening of any restaurant, they need state’s approval.
Phase 3 also states that bars, pubs and nightclubs that derive more than 50 percent of sales from alcohol should operate at full capacity with limited social distancing protocols.
The article goes on to say that the number of new coronaviruses peaked in July and have been steadily decreasing, while also telling the readers that they added 2,847 new cases yesterday and had another 120 Floridians die from the virus.
Almost 3,000 new cases a day does not seem like a good time to reopen all of your businesses until your goal is to dramatically increase that number in the next few weeks.
Governor DeSantis continues to channel his inner Donald Trump which is extremely bad news for his constituents.
