Florida Governor. Ron Desantis suspended the local COVID-19 emergency order on Monday and signed into law a resolution passed last week that limits the government’s ability to enforce mask requirements and other social distancing measures used to combat coronavirus.
The 2006 Senate Bill also orders a permanent exemption banning vaccine passports, and says monitoring people is unnecessary at this time.
I think if you say you really don’t believe in vaccines, you don’t believe in knowledge, you don’t believe in science, said Dansentis St. At a bill ceremony held in St. Petersburg.
The law will make it difficult for local governments to compactly create emergency experts and take measures such as wearing a work mask or restricting jobs, such as a seven-day increase over 42 days.
The Tampa Bay Times reported that the order forcing Desantis to lift local virus restrictions is invalid to mask compliance or social responsibility in the workplace.
The news comes at the same time as Florida continues to record thousands of new COVID cases each week, but from week to week the number of COVIDs is dropping significantly.
Opponents warned, as the committees measured, that the ban would lead to lawsuits and other undesirable consequences, such as tourists fleeing the state for health concerns.
They also questioned whether this move would encourage the First Amendment challenge, as it denied the right of private businesses and schools not to interact with unintentional consumers.
But De Santis said the restrictions included in the bill provide a roadmap to address future science-based health emergencies.
I think it will create a structure that is a little more respectful of people’s jobs, schools and personal freedoms.
The language of the enforcement order was not immediately revealed and was not available on the governor’s website until midnight on Monday.
