Covid-19 no longer in Florida: DeSantis suspended remained pandemic restrictions
Yesterday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order that lifted Florida out of the pandemic. All restrictions that apply in most states have been lifted in Florida.
“I was proud to sign landmark legislation & 2 executive orders to protect individual liberties. SB 2006:
Bans Vaccine Passports, Prohibits Indefinite Lockdowns, Ends Local Restrictions on Small Businesses, Bolsters Emergency Preparedness for Future Public Health Emergencies,” DeSantis tweeted.

In addition to SB 2006, the Governor of Florida has also blocked vaccine passports.
Thrilled to sign legislation that prohibits COVID-19 vaccine passports in Florida. Neither government, nor private businesses, will be able to condition your participation in everyday life on producing private health information. https://t.co/0NMBk1l9zI— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) May 3, 2021
Florida was previously among the states most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. More than 2.2 million people have been infected and 35,000 have died. Now Florida and Texas, against the background of a colossal decrease in the incidence of diseases, are deciding to open small businesses not to force people to wear masks.
