Travelers from Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York who are wanting to visit the state of Florida must self-isolate for 14 days once they arrive in the state. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has extended the self-isolate order for travelers from those states.
This Executive Order does not apply to individuals involved in commercial activity and students traveling for the purpose of academic work, internships, sports training, and any other activity or program approved by the educational institution.
All persons isolating or quarantining will be responsible for all costs associated with their isolation or quarantine. This includes transportation, lodging, food, medical care, and any other expenses to sustain the individual during their period of isolation or quarantine.
Roadside checkpoints are set up on interstates to check for potential COVID-19 cases coming into Florida from areas with substantial community spread of the virus. The checkpoints do not apply to commercial drivers or health workers.
Extended in Executive Order 20-139, travelers entering the state of Florida from Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York must self-isolate for 14 days from their entry into Florida or the duration of their stay, whichever is shorter. Visit https://t.co/E7UM7vX9fk for more. pic.twitter.com/Kw806IOhZo
