COVID-19: Florida Reopens While New York Tightens Restrictions

New York City is threatening widespread shutdown for non-essential businesses in parts of the city, while in Florida the governor has now lifted all restrictions imposed due to Covid-19.

Governor Ron DeSantis promised to never lockdown again. He said that he knows the coronavirus still exists in Florida, but he will not let the economy suffer any longer.

“In the state of Florida, everybody has the opportunity and the right to work. Every business has the right to operate,” said DeSantis during his press conference in St. Petersburg on Friday. “Some of the locals…they can do reasonable regulations, but you can’t just say no, after six months and just have people twisting in the winds.”

DeSantis signed an executive order lifting all Covid-19 restrictions, reopening bars, restaurants, salons, and gyms. He said that cities and counties with increased numbers of viruses can decide to restrict seating capacities as they see fit. The governor also said, “no one in Florida can be fined anymore for not wearing a facemask.”

In New York city instead is threatening to ban all gathering of more than 10 people, issuing fines to anyone refusing to wear masks, closing private schools and care centers, and shutting down non-essential businesses in nine different boroughs where Covid-19 cases have increased.

“We are seeing a serious uptick in multiple neighborhoods simultaneously,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio during a press conference. “It’s something we have to address with a very aggressive public health effort right away.”
