Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Suspends All Local COVID Emergency Orders

‘I think folks that are saying they need to be policing people at this point, if you’re saying that, then you’re really saying you don’t believe in the vaccines’

DeSANTIS: "I think that the approach here is showing Florida leading the way again, because I think there’s other states that would probably go in a different direction. But here are some of the highlights. The bill ensures that neither the state nor local governments can close business or keep kids out of in-person instruction unless they satisfied demanding and continuous justifications. One of the things I think has been so problematic about this is that they’re different policies that have been enacted, particularly in other parts of the country, different restrictions or mandates, and they’re done. And then, even when the evidence refutes the effectiveness or the need or the justification for them, they continue on and sometimes they’re even re-upped. This changes that and makes sure that people are protected. It also says that any local emergency order, excluding hurricane emergencies, are capped at seven-day increments and may only be extended to a maximum duration of 42 days. And, most importantly, as governor. I will have the authority to invalidate a local emergency order if it unnecessarily restricts individual rights or liberties.”
