Here's what we're following today.

Florida set a record for the number of new reported coronavirus cases on Sunday: 15,299. It's the largest single day increase of virus cases in any state since the pandemic began. Gov. Ron DeSantis has not set a mandatory mask requirement for Floridians, and two of Disney’s four Florida parks have reopened to the public with the other two expected to open Wednesday. But some local leaders have rolled back a number of reopenings in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.

As the coronavirus pandemic surges across the country, the White House appears to be targeting Dr. Anthony Fauci. The New York Times reports the Trump administration on Saturday released a list of talking points attacking the nation’s leading infectious disease expert.

Poland's conservative president Andrjez Duda, 48, narrowly won reelection to a second, five-year term Sunday, further calling into question the country's commitment to western-style democracy and continued membership in the European Union. It also further empowers Poland's ruling Law and Justice party which has worked to weaken the country's independent judiciary and free press.

More than 1,000 employees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have signed a letter demanding an end to “ongoing and recurring acts of racism and discrimination” against Black employees. In a statement, CDC Director Robert Redfield said the agency is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where staff can share their concerns.
