Florida Governor Suspends All Remaining COVID Restrictions

He claims the state is 'no longer in a state of emergency'

Today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order that immediately suspends all outstanding local COVID-19 emergency orders and related public health restrictions.

"The fact is, we are no longer in a state of emergency," DeSantis said during a news conference. He acknowledged that Florida was still not done with its fight against the coronavirus but reiterated the nation's decline in COVID-19 cases and deaths as evidence of why he signed the EO.

"I think that's the evidence-based thing to do," DeSantis said, adding that asking vaccinated individuals to continue to wear masks would undermine confidence in the coronavirus vaccines.
