Latest COVID order from SDFLA.... (UPDATED) here.  It allows for the use of Zoom-hearings under the CARES Act.  There was some rumbling about whether jury trials (or grand juries) would be suspended again, but that didn't happen.  It's all systems go despite the all-time high COVID numbers.  There's also an order requiring all court employees to be vaccinated or tested twice weekly. I like it.  Unfortunately, though, this does not apply to the CSOs or Marshals.  

Even if there is no general order continuing trials, some judges are doing it on their own.  See this order from Judge Cooke:
