JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Wednesday marks two months since Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry declared a state of emergency for Duval County.
“Because of the shutdown and the disruption to our daily life, people in our country are understandable restless, I’m restless too as is my family," Curry said.
A week and a half after Phase 1 of reopening began in Florida, Curry thinks Jacksonville is ready for Phase 2.
“It’s important to know this, the virus is here and it doesn’t spread itself, people spread the virus," he said. "So as we reopen in these phases, let’s be smart. Let’s be responsible."
What is Phase 2? Another round of businesses will be allowed to reopen and the businesses currently open will be allowed to increase capacity.
What Does Phase 2 Look Like?
Curry says he will be lifting his work from home mandate on Monday but says he hopes companies continue working remotely if they can.
