Governor DeSantis suspends all local COVID-19 emergency orders

May 4, 2021 | ,

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – Governor DeSantis signed several executive orders to immediately suspend and eventually invalidate by July 1 all local emergency orders related to COVID-19.

This includes local mask mandates and curfews.

Palm Beach County officials recently extended the county mask mandate through May 18.

By signing the executive order, Governor DeSantis says that is no longer enforceable, though businesses can still decide what their mask policy is for customers.

“In terms of what a grocery store or a Disney theme park chooses to do, this does not deal with that one way or another,” he said. “This bill applies to government action.”
