LONDON (Reuters) – Aston Villa returned to the Premier League, after a three-year absence, beating Derby County 2-1 in the Championship playoff final at Wembley on Monday.Goals from Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn put Villa 2-0 up before Martyn Waghorn pulled one back for Derby in the 81st minute, but Dean Smith’s side held on for the victory under intense pressure.The playoff final is considered the most lucrative single game of football in the world, with promotion earning Villa an estimated 170 million pounds ($215.51 million) in revenue.Norwich City and Sheffield United had already secured promotion to the top flight for next season after finishing in the top two positions in the second tier Championship. Villa, European champions in 1982, were relegated in 2016 and lost to Fulham in last year’s playoff final.El Ghazi opened the scoring just before the break with a diving header from Ahmed Elmohamady’s cross from the right.McGinn doubled the advantage in the 59th minute when a deflected shot from El Ghazi looped into the area. Derby keeper Kelle Roos came out but was unable to capture the ball under a challenge from McGinn, who bundled it home. Derby, managed by former Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard, got back in the game when substitute Jack Marriott’s low shot was turned in by Waghorn and they piled on the pressure in the final minutes, but were unable to break through.Villa’s local-born midfielder Jack Grealish, who was close to leaving the club before the start of the season, showed his class throughout and was delighted with promotion. “I’m speechless. It was such a hard game… It means the world to go up, we know where this club belongs. I’ve stayed here and we’re back there now. I’ve led my boyhood team to the Premier League,” he said.A 10-match winning streak during the run-in propelled Smith’s Villa side into the playoffs where they got past West Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion in the semi-finals. Smith, who began the season at Brentford and took over from Steve Bruce at Villa Park in October, said the club had an exciting future with the backing of owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.“It feels very good. The lads are a terrific bunch. They take on different ideas, they deserve it. I believe pressure is what you put on yourself, we work hard every day, the only difference is expectation. We’ve got two owners have got a lot of money, and are in it for the long haul. The potential now is massive,” he said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has stated he does not plan to again close businesses that were allowed to reopen in May. He also supports having children return to the classroom for school.“Florida is seeing broad community spread in many counties and metros,” the report goes on to say.Most of the task force’s recommendations are already in place in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.County commissioners in the three South Florida counties have already passed laws requiring people to wear masks in public.However, unlike the relaxed rules in 64 other counties throughout the state, South Florida restaurants, retailers, gyms and other businesses are under tighter restrictions.Under the task force recommendations, masks would be mandatory statewide, and restaurants would be restricted to outdoor dining. Gyms would be closed. The task force also says that groups in the red zone counties and metro areas should be limited to 10, a policy which is already in place in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. In order to stop the spread of the coronavirus, masks should be mandatory and new restrictions should be placed on restaurants, gyms and other businesses in 12 Florida counties and 12 metro areas, according to an unpublished report by the White House Coronavirus Task Force that was obtained Thursday by the Center for Public Integrity.Saying Florida is among 18 states in the “red zone” according to key measures, the report outlines a series of steps that should be taken.“Florida is in the red zone for cases, indicating more than 100 cases per 100,000 population last week, and the red zone for test positivity, indicating a rate above 10 percent,” according to the report, which was dated Tuesday.It says that Florida tallied 308 new infections for every 100,000 residents from July 7 through last Tuesday, nearly triple the national average of 119 cases per 100,000.The report recommends crackdowns in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Orange, Collier and Lee counties.In addition, it calls for strict measures be taken in Jacksonville, which is slated to host the Republican National Convention next month.Other areas that are also in the red zone include Port St. Lucie, Daytona Beach, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Lakeland.Another 12 counties and several metro areas throughout the state are in the “yellow zone,” considered to be at risk.Dr. Deborah Birx, a leader of the task force, told the nonprofit government watchdog group that the weekly report is shared with governors. In addition, the report recommends that efforts be made to immediately test all people and families who either threw or attended parties or large gatherings during the July 4 holiday weekend.It says testing should be expanded, especially into neighborhoods with the help of community-based groups who can help reach “multi-generational families” and explain the risks and steps to take to avoid infection.In total, the task force said 18 states are in the red zone, as their caseloads are increasing. Eleven of those states are also in red zones because the percentage of people testing positive is growing. Florida is in both categories.
