Between game days and beach stays, people across the Sunshine State take advantage of the last official weekend of summer.

A recent study highlights Florida as the top destination for Labor Day weekend.

According to Daniel Coimbra, even before COVID, everybody planned to come down to Florida.

So everywhere there are lot of people.

Coimbra and his family came out to Ben T Davis Beach early Monday morning to beat the crowds.

The influx of people rushing to Florida draws some concerns amongst people in the medical field.

Dr. John Greene said when people crowd together in tight confines, there is likely to be an increase in cases.

Greene said they will not know the impact of the Labor Day crowds immediately.

He also said if there’s an increase from this holiday, it will be found within a couple of weeks.

In the past, there have been major holidays in some areas that have not led to an uptick in cases.

But, in other areas it has. So, whether that pans out or not, they are more than prepared.

Florida is still experiencing the worst surge of cases since the pandemic started.

Many experts believe this could be the last spike if vaccinations continue to rise.
