This morning Governor Ron DeSantis announced he will be issuing a regional Safer At Home executive order for Southeast Florida in response to the growing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Senator Rodriguez, who has called for a statewide stay at home order, has responded with the following statement:
“In the absence of a statewide order, a regional safer-at-home order is welcome to bring much needed uniformity. However, no corner of our state is immune and a piecemeal/patchwork approach will not cut it. Because we remain so far behind on testing, we cannot know how far behind we also are in trying to catch up with the virus as it spreads. Counties like Lee, for example, have medical professionals urging for a safer-at-home order, reminding us why a statewide order is the best approach.”
