Gov. Ron DeSantis late Tuesday extended until Aug. 1 an executive order that seeks to help prevent foreclosures and evictions amid job losses and financial problems caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic. DeSantis made the announcement just hours before an earlier extension was scheduled to expire.
