DeSantis Drops Florida Quarantine Order for New York Travelers

People traveling to Florida from three northeastern states just got a break.

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday quietly rescinded an executive order that required travelers into the Sunshine State from areas with “substantial community spread” of COVID-19 to quarantine for two weeks.

The rule had affected those coming from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

DeSantis implemented the requirements on March 23, when New York City was a hotspot for the new coronavirus.

Since then, new cases of COVID-19 have fallen in New York.

Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order requiring travelers from Florida and 34 other states to quarantine for 14 days when they arrive in his state remains in effect.
