The CDC and United States Department of Agriculture has announced several animals, including house cats, are capable of contracting the coronavirus. While this is nothing to panic about, it is important to remember that not only you, but also your pets need to social distance while South Florida continues the fight to "flatten the curve."

Here are some of the key points from the CDC:

  • Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some cause illness in people, and others cause illness in certain types of animals.

  • Some coronaviruses that infect animals can sometimes be spread to people, but this is rare.

  • We do not know the exact source of the current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The first infections were…

When you visit friends and family who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, there are some things you can do to help keep them safe, including:

  • Wearing a face covering

  • Staying 6 at feet apart

  • Meeting outside if possible

  • Washing your hands often

  • Sanitizing all touched surfaces

And remember, in cases where you can avoid visits with those at higher risk of COVID-19, you should do so.

Who Is in the Most Danger?

Gov. Ron DeSantis says he wants the state to expand its COVID-19 antibody testing capabilities and to commission a study on how widespread undocumented infections are.

Antibody testing, which indicates whether someone already fought off the virus, is available on-demand for medical professionals and first responders at several drive-thru facilities. But with a limited number of serological tests, members of the general public have only been tested through scientific studies.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted one study in South Florida and the University of Miami conducted a test in Miami-Dade County, both suggesting the virus was an order of magnitude more prevalent than diagnostic testing alone indicates.

During a…

Gov. Ron DeSantis said he has no plans to issue a statewide mask requirement at this time, but also won’t preempt local regulations. Here’s Florida Politics’ roundup of regulations in the Sunshine State.

Florida Counties

The most recent order also includes requirements on signage in businesses where masks are mandatory.

With coronavirus cases back on the rise in South Florida it is important for residents to maintain safe social distancing while keeping a close eye on their own overall health. If you feel unwell, you should closely monitor your symptoms and, if you experience one or more of these common symptoms of COVID-19, schedule an appointment to get tested ASAP.

Shortness of breath

Shortness of breath is not usually an early symptom of Covid-19, but it is the most serious. It can occur on its own, without a cough. If your chest becomes tight or you begin to feel as if you cannot breathe deeply enough to fill your lungs with air, that's a sign to act quickly

Independence Day is coming up this Saturday and many are wondering how they can celebrate while still practicing safe social distancing

Watch on TV

Many cities have canceled their festivities, and with that, the main draw: fireworks. But some are moving forward. Your best, and safest, bet is to watch either in your backyard or on a TV or computer screen. No, it won’t be as good as the real thing. But it’s a small price to pay for your health and safety.

In New York City, Macy’s fireworks show, a spectacle that usually beckons residents to rooftops and parks on July 4, will take place on several unspecified nights from Monday through the holiday, with each display lasting only five minutes. They will be set off from unannounced locations…
