State Of Emergency Declared For Florida

A state of emergency has been declared for Florida due to the global outbreak, resulting in the effort to better use resources.


State Of Emergency Declared For Florida

Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared a state of emergency for Florida due to the current Coronavirus outbreak. In Florida there has been 14 confirmed cases and 2 deaths.

He urges the elderly and vulnerable to stay away from cruise ships, long-haul flights, and large gatherings.

Florida health officials have stressed that normally healthy individuals remain at low risk of contracting the virus.

DeSantis said the emergency declaration allows for what he called a unified command structure to limit the spread of the virus, and to allow the state to more effectively mobilise resources.

Disney will do everything it can to stay open. Walt Disney World remained opened during previous pandemics (SARS, Swine Flu etc), and has only ever closed for 9/11 and hurricanes in the past. Disney has released a statement on what actions they are taking to keep their parks protected.
