Northwest Florida

PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — Mayor Grover Robinson held a press conference Thursday to update Pensacolians on COVID-19 in the city.

The conference was virtual via Microsoft Teams at 3 p.m.

Mayor Robinson had this to say at Thursday’s conference, “COVID-19 has posed a significant impact on both our health and our prosperity. Despite these impacts, the city has worked to manage a response that secures both a healthy Pensacola, but also a prosperous Pensacola…,” he continued. “Much of our reaction to COVID-19 in public discourse is centered on politics and principle. However, the city and my response is based on neither politics nor principle, but on people. I would never choose between a safe or a prosperous city. Why would we allow ourselves to be limited to such a poor choice? My response has been very focused on achieving a safe and prosperous city.”
