Governor DeSantis Issues 14 Day Quarantine For Those Flying to Orlando From New York City
Though the fate of 2020 Orlando tourism still remains uncertain, one thing we do know according to a recent order by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is that anyone flying into Florida from “hotspots” including New York and New Jersey are being required to self-quarantine in the state for 14-days as the state government tries to do more to stop COVID-19 cases coming into the state.
This is a policy similar to the one implemented by the Hawaiian governor last week that led to the eventual close of Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa. According to a recent post in the Orlando Sentinel, DeSantis has slammed states who have implemented mandatory “Stay at Home” orders as he believes that it’s driving residents from these “hotspots” to come to Florida.
Earlier today the Florida Governor said, “Even if you have a benefit [from a shelter in place order], that could be overwhelmed by all of the people who are still coming to Florida,” he said. “To this day, today, there are over 190 direct flights from the New York City area to the state of Florida. And I would reckon given the outbreak there has somebody on it who is positive for Covid-19. And so as we’re working to stop it in the state of Florida you’re consistently having people come in from one of the top hotspots in the entire world.”
This comes hot on the heels of the story that at least 3 TSA agents at Orlando International Airport (MCO) have tested positive for the virus COVID-19 infections in Florida are now over 1,100.
