Governor’s executive order suspends all local COVID-19 mandates on businesses and individuals

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Today Governor Ron DeSantis signed two executive orders. Order 21-102 takes effect immediately and suspends all local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates on individuals and businesses. It then “eliminates and supersedes any existing emergency order issued by a county or municipality that imposes restrictions or mandates upon businesses or individuals” and goes on to state that “no county or municipality may renew or enact an emergency order or ordinance… that imposes restrictions or mandates upon businesses or individuals due to the COVID-19 emergency.”

Executive Order 21-101 takes effect on July 1 and invalidates any local order “which restricts the rights or liberties of individuals or their businesses.”

  • Can someone clarify if my child has to wear a mask to school tomorrow in an Alachua County public school?

  • I’m sure Mark Sexton will fail to reiterate the Governor’s order so allow me to assist since he is probably having dinner.

    What Mark Sexton will never say…
    “Thank you Governor, for this whereas;
    Today the honorable Governor Ron DeSantis signed two executive orders. Order 21-102 takes effect immediately and suspends all local Draconian COVID-19 restrictions and mandates on individuals and businesses. It then “eliminates and supersedes any existing emergency order issued by Alachua county and city of Gainesville that imposes restrictions or mandates upon businesses or individuals” and goes on to state that “no county or municipality may renew or enact an emergency order or ordinance… that imposes restrictions or mandates upon businesses or individuals due to the COVID-19 emergency.”

    What Mark Sexton is probably saying…
    “What can we do now?” “Someone contact the county attorney and see if her office can pull something out of their arses so we can take the issue to the Florida Supreme Court.” “There has to be something Poe can do.” “Does this mean I have to go back to the office?”

    Can’t wait hear the crybabies at the next meeting.

    • You are 100% accurate. The tyrants in local gov
      Just got a wedgie. They should be arrested for what
      They put us through for the last year. Total BS.
      By the way, the kids shouldn’t have to wear a mask
      In school…major psychological and physical damage
      Has been caused on many people because of their
      Mandate. It was a very stressful last year and they
      Cooped us up past the breaking point.

  • When you take time to actually read the order you will discover: “This order is effective beginning on July 1, 2021 and shall be immediately filed with the Division of Administrative Hearings”

    • It appears Cornel is already stumping for private businesses to implement their own masks’ requirements in lieu of the governor taking away his “hand.”

  • So good to know we have a Governor that has lots of common sense!! Just like with the nursing homes, he kept our older population safe. And those that don’t like these orders can move up north, I’m sure you can wear a mask forever! The

  • One would think they’d pat themselves on the back and MOVE ON. ~90% of seniors in this county are vaccinated. We’re down to ~30 “cases” per day and I’m sure those are almost all young people.

    What slays me about these loons is they spend MOST of their time on masks, rather than any sort of coherent campaign to get people vaccinated.
