need to open

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis compares schools to essential business and is confident they can open in the fall.
JACKSONVILLE — Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday he is asking the federal government for more medicine and will create designated drive-through lanes at testing sites in Broward and Miami-Dade counties for people with coronavirus symptoms to speed up results.
DeSantis also said Florida schools need to reopen as soon as possible.
“We spent months saying that there were certain things that were essential, and that included fast food restaurants, it included Walmart, it included Home Depot,” the governor said at a news conference in Jacksonville with U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “But if all that is essential, than educating our kids is absolutely essential. … If you can do these things, we absolutely can do the schools.”
DeSantis said designated testing lanes for Broward, Miami-Dade and Orange, three of the counties with the highest volume of testing, are needed because the turnaround on results has been slower than he expected.
“I think at the end of March, we were like 100,000 [tests] a day, maybe somewhere in that range as a country,” DeSantis said. “Now we’re at 650,000 and we may even hit 700,000 tests in a day. The problem with that has been the lab turnaround is just getting backed up.”
The governor said the state will try to get contracts with labs that can turn around results in 48 to 72 hours
“When the tests are taking a long time to get turned around, if you’re asymptomatic, what are you supposed to do?” he said. ”Stay home and wait? … Then if you’re symptomatic, obviously, you need to know whether you have coronavirus or you have something else.”
