DeSantis issues statewide safer-at-home order to curb coronavirus

1 min read

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a statewide safer-at-home order on Wednesday afternoon to curb the rate of infection in his state during the global coronavirus pandemic.

The order will go into effect at midnight Thursday and last for at least 30 days.

“It makes sense to make this move now,” the Republican governor said during a press conference Wednesday, adding that he was taking the action after President Trump extended the social distancing guidelines nationwide for another 30 days.

  1. This should have happened a month ago! This unfortunately in my opinion will get worse. Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck, what happens when they can not start pay their bills or feed their family? How many scammers do things are going to be out on the internet? I can only imagine how many people are on the internet right now! Protect yourself and your family! Stay Home, Stay Safe

  2. I am glad you finally, decided to do the right thing. I just think you should have done it sooner. And we wouldn’t be in the shape we’re in. I just hope we can change the course of this disease n stop all the deaths. Trump should have shut this whole country down. And the heck with Wall Street. Lives are more important then money. Thank you for doing the right thing.

  3. About time. Just wonder why the state has not done the screening of people’s temperature when they go in and out of a establishment?? The hospitals don’t even do it. They just asked you a few questions and that’s it, then you write your name down and sign. Other countries have been doing this screening, third world countries at that even.
