- COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are back on the rise.
- Legislative leaders revealed rule changes and more COVID-19 precautions as lawmakers prepare to return to the Capitol for Organization Session next week.
- Tropical Storm Eta made landfall in Florida twice, with heavy rain that flooded streets and left wildlife in the Everglades stranded on levees in high water.
