DeSantis Announces Stay At Home Order

Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday he will issue an executive order calling for Floridians statewide to stay at home, a move that he had been resisting as other states took similar steps because of the novel coronavirus.

See the list of “Essential Businesses” here. The list is from an earlier Miami Order that Governor DeSantis cites in the state-wide Order.

“Even though there are a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now,” DeSantis said, adding that he spoke with the White House before making the decision.

DeSantis did not go into great detail during a news conference Wednesday afternoon but said the order will take effect Thursday night. He said it will be directed at individuals and not businesses. But he said Floridians will be allowed to obtain essential services, and people performing essential jobs will be allowed to move about.

DeSantis said it is modeled after restrictions already in place in Miami-Dade County, which has been one of the hotspots for the pandemic.

For most of the last two weeks, DeSantis has raised concerns about imposing any kind of statewide order, saying the virus had not spread to all 67 counties. On Tuesday, he also said a statewide order had not been recommended by members of the White House coronavirus task force.

The News Service will have a full story later Wednesday.

    No one should believe or react to any of this nonsense. I, for one, will not accept any of this until we’re shown a side-by-side comparative chart that depicts and compares the year-to-date number of deaths associated with Covid-19 here in America… to the year-to-date number of deaths from the common flu, car wrecks, diabetes, cancer, abortion, trip and falls, et al… here in America.

    But this will never happen, lest we expose the ruse that is designed to destroy our Republic. Wake up America!

    May God continue to bless and protect America, Her President, Her Constitution, Her Laws, Her Sovereignty, and Her Citizens.

    1. Deaths from common flu this year so far in the U.S.~ 18,000, from COV-19: ~1,800.
      Leon Co. (as of Fri): 36 confirmed cases, requiring hospitalizations: 4, deaths: 0 One lady died at TMH but was shipped in from GA in pretty bad shape.

  3. MHPO (Manufactured Hysteria by the Perpetually Outraged) is all.

    “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

  4. Sorry, but I’m still going catching (aka fishing for those who don’t catch much). I am “obtaining essential services” for my family. We need to eat.

  5. I have a copy of the Maryland order, eight pages long, which was made available online. (My child lives there.) Do you intend to post a link to Florida’s stay-at-home order online? It is impossible to obey the new rules when people do not know the restrictions.
