“I would caution very strongly whether we should be lifting that order too soon,” Prins said.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington said the earliest Florida could look to relax social distancing with containment strategies that include testing, contact tracing, isolation and limiting gathering size

is the week of June 8.
