Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that he will sign an executive order requiring passengers flying from New York and New Jersey to Florida to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Local law enforcement will meet passengers on flights to collect passenger information and take temperature checks.
Staying with family will not be allowed for self-quarantine.
He says that he will not issue a statewide stay at home order, but some cities such as Miami Beach have issued stay at home orders and have closed hotels. He blames NY and NJ stay at home orders for encouraging people there to fly to Florida. He also would like the federal government to curtail flights from regions hard hit by COVID-19.
Hawaii previously announced a 2 week quarantine for all out of state arrivals, but Florida will be the first state on the US mainland to require a quarantine for select arriving passengers.
Will this order change your travel plans?
