Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced during a news conference in Jacksonville that summer camps and youth activities can open without restrictions. On Friday he said local organizations and governments can set rules and guidelines, and the state won’t preempt those rules. He said Florida has had no fatalities of people under the age of 25.  As of Friday morning, there have been more than 49,000 cases diagnosed in Florida, with around 2,190 deaths. The median age of people infected is 54 years old, according to state statistics. Meanwhile, Miami Beach city commissioners agreed Friday to reopen beaches and hotels beginning June 1.
