Governor rescinds travel restrictions

By Staff | Aug 21, 2020

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Executive Order 20-192 on Aug. 6, which addresses short-term vacation rentals and rescinds the travel restrictions for the tri-state area: New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. People from those areas had been advised to self-quarantine for two weeks.

The order also rescinds the previous employee screening requirements for restaurant employees. It means employees who have previously tested positive do not need to receive two negative tests before they can return to work. Employers are required only to implement screening protocols pursuant to CDC guidance. The order also removes the requirement that employees who have traveled through an airport in the last 14 days be prohibited from working in a restaurant.
