CAPE CORAL, Fla -- Governor Ron DeSantis’ Re-Open Florida Task Force wants your input when it comes to re-opening our state. Monday morning could be your last chance to weigh in, before the statewide recommendations are made.

On Monday, the task force executive committee is expected to present its final report to the governor. We know it will be a compilation of what's come out of the group's meetings, along with those of the industry working groups.

The public's input will also factor in. Over the weekend the force launched this public comment submission portal, and said your feedback will be a critical component of that final report.

As far as a timeline on how much longer you'll have to weigh in, that final report is expected to be presented to the governor Monday.

During the last executive committee meeting we got some insight on what a potential timeline for re-opening businesses like salons and barbershops, bars and restaurants, and hotels might look like.

The committee mentioned things like sanitation, social distancing, and ensuring enough cleaning supplies and PPE items are available in the supply chain, as items that factor into developing a safe plan for re-opening.

It said many restaurants and hotels may need a ramp up time of two to four weeks before becoming fully functional, for reasons that include securing financing and the purchasing of supplies.

Following the final report being presented to the governor, his statewide recommendations are expected as early as mid-week.
