Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday afternoon that he wants to avoid a statewide lockdown like many other states have done, according to U.S. News.
Over the last few days, DeSantis has ordered statewide closures of bars and gyms and limited restaurants to takeout and deliver only.
Many counties across the state are shutting down beaches, marinas and parks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
According to DeSantis, 67 counties in the state of Florida have no confirmed cases and another third have few.
As of Monday morning, more than 1,100 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in Florida and 13 have died.
A petition on change.org has gathered over 60,000 signatures to shut down the state.
