Florida Removes Quarantine Mandate for New York Travelers

On August 6, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis removed the order that required all travelers coming to Florida from New York, Connecticut and New Jersey to quarantine for 14 days. According to CBS and The Associated Press, Republican Gov. DeSantis had originally mandated the 14-day quarantine for travelers from these states because of their high rates of infection, especially among New Yorkers. Now, however, New York’s state-wide daily infection rate is just one-tenth of Florida’s daily rate.
As the cases in Florida rose in June, the Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered his own mandate requiring residents from Florida and other southern states to quarantine upon arriving in New York.
