Gov. Ron DeSantis has issued an executive order requiring people who are flying into Florida from New York or New Jersey to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
DeSantis made the announcement during a press conference Monday afternoon.
He says the 14-day quarantine applies to air travelers. He said it’s too difficult to monitor those traveling to Florida through automobile.
Criminal charges can also be filed for travelers breaking the self-quarantine order.
Before the announcement, Gov. DeSantis doubled down on his stance of not issuing a “stay-at-home” order for all Florida residents. He added that issuing an order similar to what California, New York, Illinois and several other states did is “unadvisable” for Florida.
