Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is allowing some beaches in northern Florida to reopen, The Associated Press reported on Friday, even though the state has continued to see an increase in coronavirus cases.

As of Friday, Florida had reported over 24,000 cases of the virus and nearly 700 deaths. DeSantis, who initially left it up to local officials to close their beaches and other establishments, said at a news conference on Friday that some counties could start reopening their beaches if they wanted, adding that it was important for people to get fresh air, the AP reported.
