Florida continues to make meaningful progress in reducing the spread of COVID-19. On Monday, 8,645 new cases were reported statewide. COVID-19 hospitalizations in Florida also decreased, dropping below 8,500 for the first time since July 27th. 

In other news, fueled by new investor money this year, GameStop, the original so-called meme stock pumped by the Reddit forum WallStBets, has announced a new call and operations center will be created in Pembroke Pines. The plan includes 500 new jobs once opened. 

According to Florida’s Prepaid College Tuition Program, over 30,000 families have a combined $200 million in unclaimed money. Based on a plan instituted by then-Governor Rick Scott to make college more affordable, Florida’s colleges and universities haven’t raised tuition rates in six years. As a result, tens of thousands of families have credits averaging $4,700 per family. If you think you may have a credit, you’re encouraged to review your account with Florida Prepaid.
