NEWS: Governor DeSantis Extends Mandatory Quarantine For Visitors Entering Florida from the New York Tri-State

As Walt Disney World begins reopening select Resorts beginning June 22, and makes plans for phased reopening of the Parks beginning July 11, there is news from Governor DeSantis that will likely change plans for many Disney guests from the New York Tri-State Area including Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

 

As shared by FloridaHealthCOVID19.gov:

Governor DeSantis directed all individuals entering the state of Florida from the New York Tri-State Area (Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York) to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter. This includes persons entering Florida by roadways.

  • This order was extended in Section 3 of Executive Order Number 20-139.
  • 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.
