Gov. Ron DeSantis Issues ‘Stay at Home’ Order for Florida

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has issued a stay-at-home order for Florida amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Florida now joins 32 states that are under a “stay-at-home” order.

The order mandates that Floridians stay home unless they’re going out for “essential services or activities.”

Details will be released later Wednesday.

The order will take effect Thursday at midnight and last 30 days.

Florida is at just under 7,000 coronavirus cases as of Wednesday morning. The death toll is at 87.

“Although the guidelines don’t call for any new action…I think it’s clear it effectively represents a national pause,” DeSantis said. “It makes sense to make this move now.”
