Governor Ron DeSantis has issued a mandatory stay-at-home order for the entire state of Florida, starting Thursday at midnight.
The order mandates that Floridians stay home and requires “all persons in Florida to limit their movements and personal interactions outside of their home” to essential services or activities for the next 30 days.
The order will take effect Thursday at midnight.
Despite repeatedly rebuffing suggestions from state legislators that he should shutdown the state, DeSantis said Wednesday that he made the move after speaking with President Trump.
“I did speak with the president about it,” he said. “He agreed with the approach of focusing on the hot spots. But at the same time, he understood that this is another 30-day situation and you gotta just do what makes the most sense.”
