Indian River County and Brevard County coronavirus update.

The number of Coronavirus cases in Florida are still very high, setting a new record, but Governor Ron DeSantis said it’s because there’s more testing and several labs were backlogged and decided to do a data dump.

As long as you’re doing everything to protect yourself, you have nothing to fear or worry about. Please continue to wash your hands regularly, social distance, and wear a mask.

We are interviewing Sebastian City Manager Paul Carlisle either today or Friday during our Sebastian Daily newscast.
