Gov. DeSantis Suspends All Local COVID-19 Emergency Orders Throughout Florida
[www.nbcmiami.com]

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is suspending all local COVID-19 emergency orders throughout the state.

Speaking at a news conference in St. Petersburg, DeSantis said he was suspending the local orders under his executive power. He said he was also signing an executive order invalidating all remaining local emergency orders that will become effective on July 1.

"I think that's the evidence-based thing to do," DeSantis said. "I think folks that are saying that they need to be policing people at this point, if you're saying that, you really are saying you don't believe in the vaccines, you don't believe in the data, you don't believe in the science. We've embraced the vaccines, we've embraced the science on it."

A separate bill DeSantis signed that also becomes effective on July 1 will limit the time a local government is able to close businesses and schools.

The Republican governor brought up other states where restrictions and mask mandates remain in place, arguing that some of them aren't effective.

"My message is, the vaccines protect you, get vaccinated, and then live your life as if you're protected. You don't have to chafe under restrictions infinitum," DeSantis said.

Florida recorded a daily positivity rate of 5.87 percent on Sunday, up from 5.7 percent the day before, the newspaper reported.

Florida also logged 3,841 new cases Sunday, bringing the state tally to more than 2.2 million, according to figures from state health officials.

Meanwhile, 42.3 percent of the state’s residents have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, according to Bloomberg.

When the tide turns, it will turn swiftly. Eventually, given enough time, DeathSantis will be right. Putting it out to July 1 gives him time.

I wonder what the curve looks like.

Crazy harsh restrictions (lockdown, curfew, masks at all times, even outdoors, incinerating bodies) on one side, and crazy open ("kill everyone 'cause MUHFREEDOM!!") on the other... Do you think it's a bell-curve?

Glad we went to the Keys in April. I think we would seriously rethink our trip had DeSantis overrode local orders then. Monroe County (all of the Keys and part of the Everglades) had a mask inside and outside, social distancing and limited restaurant/bar seating mandate. We felt as safe in Key West as in Michigan if not a little more so.

It helped that two out of the three of us were already fully vaxxed.

FWIW... my retired colleagues living in Florida reported that the vaccination of the elderly was very rapid and very effective. Looks like they are at 42% with one dose, and 27% fully vaccinated. Note that 100% vaccination is not possible because Children. They make up perhaps 30% of the population.

Note that this isn't immediate; it doesn't go into effect until July 1st. By that time I think most states will have removed most or all restrictions.
