Florida Governor To Order Self-Isolation For Anybody Arriving On Flights Out Of New York And New Jersey

Orlando’s NBC News affiliate reports:

Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday that he will sign an executive order that will force anyone who travels from New York or New Jersey to Florida to self-isolate for two weeks immediately after they land in the state.

While speaking Monday about whether he will lock down the state of Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis said “huge amounts” of New Yorkers are flying to Florida despite the stay-at-home order they are currently under. DeSantis said there were over 190 flights from the New York City area to Florida airports on Monday.

“A lot of people fled the city and they’re going to stay with their parents, or they’re flying. We’re getting huge amounts of people flying in and we’re looking at how to address those flights,” DeSantis said.
