Head Of Florida’s COVID Response Team To Resign

The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

Jared Moskowitz, the head of Florida’s Division of Emergency Management and point man on the state’s coronavirus response, on Monday confirmed he is leaving office to spend more time with his family.

In a brief phone interview Moskowitz said he didn’t want to provide more details about his departure until after Gov. Ron DeSantis makes a formal announcement, which is likely to happen Tuesday.

DeSantis confirmed Moskowitz’s planned departure, while praising his work, when asked about it during a press conference. “He’s worked incredibly hard,” he said. “He’s done a fantastic job.”
