As Florida recorded its highest number of COVID-19 cases in a single day since Aug. 15, Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that nursing home restrictions in place to curb the spread of the virus will be lifted, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Facilities will be required to permit outdoor visits even if a case has been reported at the nursing home. Children will also now be allowed to visit the facilities and the number of visitors allowed at one time will be at the individual nursing home’s discretion. DeSantis’ announcement comes on the same day that 5,558 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the state. The total number of infections in Florida as of Thursday stands at 768,091.
