DOUBLE TROUBLE: Over the past four months, no organizations have worked harder than Florida’s Emergency Operation Centers. For more than 130 days, they have been activated, 24/7, to deal with the health-related complications of COVID-19. Now, these same folks have to shift and add to their assignment preparation for the effects of a possible Category 1 hurricane. As Isaias approaches, sandbag distribution and mobilization of personnel all have to be coordinated while adjusting for social distancing, face-masks and medical staff needed at potential shelter locations. Words are inadequate to appreciate the double-duty of our Emergency Management and Public Safety workers, but let’s try: Thank you!

The COVID-19 virus is testing our resolve, and the numbers here in Florida tell an extremely concerning story.
By every key metric, our state has recently been reaching record levels on an almost daily basis. These include the number of new COVID-19 cases, and the percentage of those tested for COVID-19 who are positive. Our hospitalization rates are alarming. Since March 1, Florida has reported more than 400,000 COVID-19 total cases and over 5,500 deaths.
As leaders serving Florida, we are urgently asking our community to join us in renewing our commitment to following safety guidelines, recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to stop the spread of COVID-19 and prevent more people from getting infected, becoming sick or unfortunately even dying. We all need to take personal responsibility to do the right thing for ourselves and one another to avoid our community experiencing an even more severe impact from COVID-19 like we have seen in other parts of our country.
The most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed in the first place. There are simple steps we can take to effectively reduce the risk of transmission and turn the tide in our community.
1. Wear a mask when you’re outside of your home. Wearing masks should not be a controversial or a divisive issue. Masks can help save lives, just like seatbelts, traffic lights and life vests. Multiple studies, including a recent article in the Annals of Internal Medicine, show that individuals with no symptoms or mild symptoms can transmit the virus to others. But wearing simple cloth masks can stop more than 90% of the droplets that transmit the virus.
2. Practice social distancing. Where possible, keep at least 6 feet between you and other people outside your home. Remember, even people who do not appear sick can still spread the virus to you if you are too close. Avoiding close proximity to other people will help to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.
3. Wash hands frequently. Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in public or blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, can help stem the spread. If soap and water is not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes with unwashed hands.
4. Avoid the Three Cs. The World Health Organization has recommended avoiding “Crowded” places with many people nearby, “Close” contact settings where people have close-range conversations, and “Confined,” enclosed places with poor ventilation. If you do make the decision to gather with others, it is much safer to do so outdoors rather than indoors.
Seminole County is a fun place to raise a family. It isn’t just about family fun, though—Seminole County also provides affordable housing and excellent schools.
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — A Seminole County commissioner is being attacked in a new television ad that’s aimed at stopping his bid for re-election.
The ad shows a highly-doctored photo of Seminole County commissioner Lee Constantine wafting from a toilet.
It calls Constantine a liberal, however he is a lifetime Republican.
The ad is sponsored by Sunshine State Rising.
Campaign finance records for the political action committee show a dark money trail with untraceable donors.
Constantine says he believes he knows who is behind the ads. He says it is a former Republican state lawmaker who is behind one of the most controversial proposed developments in Seminole County history.
