Florida on today (Friday) joins the more than 30 states that have statewide restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.
Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday ordered the restrictions, which call for Floridians to stay at home for the next 30 days and only leave their homes for essential services or activities. The order took effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday.
DeSantis had previously resisted issuing any stay-at-home order, saying the infection rate remained low in parts of the state. He said he changed his mind when President Donald Trump extended the national social distancing guidelines for an additional 30 days.
Even so, he dubbed the new order “Safer at Home,” instead of “stay-at-home.” Florida, the nation’s third most populous state, ranks fifth in the number of COVID-19 cases with 6,741, resulting in 84 deaths.
