Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Issues Statewide Stay At Home Mandate Through May 2
Following previous county-specific stay-at-home orders, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has now issued a stay-at-home order for the entire state of Florida. The order goes into effect tonight at midnight and will last for at least 30 days through May 2.
Pressure has been building for @GovRonDeSantis to shutdown the state of Florida and now it's happening. The Governor says he's signing an order for people here to stay-at-home due to the President's 30-days. @WFTV
Only essential services will be allowed to operate. A list of services will be released, and some businesses can be added to the list if they are deemed essential. Walt Disney World Resort and the rest of Orlando’s theme parks have been deemed non-essential since the initial stay-at-home orders issued by Orange and Osceola Counties.
All Disney Parks remain closed indefinitely, with the only earliest travel dates to book a reservation at Walt Disney World Resort currently starting at June 1 and later.
We’ll continue to update this post as further information arises.
