Florida's top Democrat has launched her own statewide campaign to urge people to protect themselves and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried has criticized Governor Ron DeSantis for not issuing a statewide mask mandate. Her new 'Be Smart Florida' campaign reminds people to social-distance, wear a mask, avoid crowds, and wash their hands.
