Summary

CBS News is chronicling what has changed in the lives of residents of some of the biggest battleground states in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.It's been six weeks since Rocky Hannah, Leon County Schools superintendent in North Florida, reopened schools after abruptly closing in the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic. When CBS News spoke with Hannah in July, the county had made an $11 million investment to purchase 32,500 laptops that his team intended to distribute to each of the district's 33,000 students before the school year started, in an effort to tackle the digital divide amid the pandemic. "Over the course of the first several weeks, I went to visit every single school in our county — over 150 classrooms — and I did not see one student at any level in violation of our mask requirements." In September, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order for the state to enter Phase 3 of re-opening, which allows restaurants and businesses to open at full capacity and prohibits any local COVID-19 emergency ordinances from limiting the operation of restaurants to less than 50%.
