American Magic Send-off Celebration Postponed
Following the decision by Escambia County and the City of Pensacola to cancel all publicly-permitted events with 500 or more people, the American Magic send-off celebration originally scheduled for Monday, March 16 at 5 p.m. has been postponed.
The action was taken in an abundance of caution and in response to a recommendation from Gov. Ron DeSantis that municipalities consider limiting or postponing mass gatherings in the state of Florida.
Governor Ron DeSantis announced this afternoon the purchase of 2,500 COVID-19 testing kits that will give qualified labs throughout the state the capacity to process tests for up to 625,000 people. Read more.
Note: This is my last post to make the point that Coronavirus test kits exist…maybe one more later. :-)
