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.”
