Florida Governor Orders Incoming New Yorkers to Self-Quarantine

Anyone arriving in Florida from airports in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut during the coronavirus outbreak will have to self quarantine for two weeks or risk facing criminal charges, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared in an executive order, CNN has reported.

DeSantis, in explaining the directive at a press conference, said “there's over 190 direct flights from the New York City area to the state of Florida, and I would reckon, given the outbreak there, that every single flight has somebody on it who's positive for Covid-19."

The Republican governor added that health and law enforcement officials will take information from every passenger arriving on flights from those states, including people who are intending to stay with family in Florida.

The executive order, issued on Monday, states that any violation would be a second degree misdemeanor that could include jail time, a fine or both.

Yeah and with no law actually passed by congress, any congress, what law would be broken and what would you be charged with???? Funny how cops won't arrest for petty crimes but if your out past curfew or what ever this crap is, they will lock you up...

Can you say martial law????

It is I believe the honor system only. No one is policing. Believe me those individuals from New York that are now in Florida are not self quarantine.

They need total lock down in Florida. No one in or out for 14 days. Florida will be the next New York.

Florida should do that by default and it shouldn't take the Whu Flu to quarantine New Yorkers. Smelly crap hole they come from.
