Click Orlando reports:

The state of Florida surpassed a grim milestone Sunday after new cases pushed the state over the 700,00 case mark.

The Florida Department of Health announced 1,882 new cases of the coronavirus in the state as of Sunday. The new cases of the respiratory illness bring the state’s total to 700,564 since the pandemic was first detected in Florida in March.

Up to now, restaurants and bars in Florida could serve customers indoors at 50% of legal occupancy. DeSantis said his new executive order lifts that restriction statewide, though local governments can keep additional limits in place if they’re justified for health or economic reasons.
