FDP Chair Rizzo’s Statement On Removal Of Florida’s COVID-19 Dashboard Manager

May 19, 2020

Tallahassee, Fla. – Reports that the Florida public health official who had been overseeing Florida's COVID-19 dashboard has been removed for refusing to, in her words, "manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen" have shocked the Florida Democratic Party and the public. 

Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, released the following statement:

“Allegations that Florida’s government may have tried to manipulate or alter data to make reopening appear safer is outrageous. These kinds of actions are dangerous and, frankly, should be criminal. An independent investigation into these allegations is needed immediately. Meanwhile, city and state officials across Florida should closely monitor the situation to protect the public’s health.”
