This Week in South Florida: Monroe County Mayor Heather Carruthers

With COVID-19 cases spiking in the Florida Keys, Monroe County Mayor Heather Carruthers joined TWIS to discuss what's being done.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – This week ended in Monroe County with a record number of COVID-19 cases in the Florida Keys.

The upward trend began when Monroe County lifted the two check-stops at the top of the Keys, allowing only residents and workers.

Now, the Monroe County Commission will impose a new curfew, calling for restaurants to close at 11 p.m. while bars have already been ordered shut.
