Florida’s Democrat politicians are pitching a fit after Gov. Ron DeSantis signed multiple executive orders barring local municipalities from continuing to enforce lockdowns, curfews and mask-wearing.
After ending the statewide mandates, DeSantis decided to take further action against cities that are still trying to impose their own by forcing them to stop through executive order.
As of May 3, 2021, all local emergency orders related to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic are suspended. On July 1, they will all be officially invalidated.
During a press conference about the orders, DeSantis was cheered on by supporters for taking this next step towards ending all Chinese virus tyranny throughout the Sunshine State.
“I think the approach here is showing Florida leading the way,” DeSantis stated before the crowd.
One of the biggest impacts will be an immediate end to a face mask mandate that was just renewed in Palm Beach County until May 18. This area is where a woman had her child taken from her by a rogue judge because she was seen recently not wearing a mask.
The mandate, which is now null and void, would have required people to continue wearing face coverings inside businesses, government buildings and Palm Tran transit services.
Palm Beach County had also intended to only allow people who got injected for the Wuhan flu to “participate in outdoor activities and recreation without a facial covering or mask, except in certain crowded settings.”

Florida governor to maintain power to end all local emergency orders that impede individual rights and liberties
In justifying his decision, DeSantis explained that local governments such as the one in Palm Beach County have greatly overstepped their authorities by placing restrictions on businesses and preventing children from attending in-person classes at school.
“Over the last year, we’ve seen some of the abuses. We want to make sure we stop that,” DeSantis stated. “[The governor’s executive order] not only reigns in the ability of local governments to do this stuff, it provides more check against the state.”
DeSantis signed another law the same day that frees businesses throughout the state from mandatory closures, as well as schools from forced restrictions on in-person education, in the event of any future “emergency” declaration.
In other words, governments will not be allowed to close businesses or tell children they must learn at home via Zoom “unless they satisfy demanding and continuous justification.”
Even for hurricanes, local emergency orders will be capped at seven-day increments “and may only be extended to a maximum duration of 42 days.”
Should the governor decide that a local emergency order within these confines is excessive or egregious, or that it “unnecessarily restricts individual rights or liberties,” then he or she will have the power to immediately invalidate it.
“I think that’s the evidence-based thing to do,” DeSantis contends. “I think folks that are saying that, they need to be policing people at this point. If you’re saying that, you really are saying you don’t believe in the vaccines.”
While many certainly do not agree with DeSantis’ position on vaccines, it is still encouraging that he is taking a stand against lockdowns, capacity restrictions and mask mandates.
“We focused on lifting people up,” DeSantis added during a speech about why he is doing all of this. “We wanted people going back to work. We wanted our kids to be in school. We wanted our economy to be healthy. We wanted our society to be healthy.”
To clarify, private businesses will still technically be allowed to maintain or institute their own mask mandates if they so choose, however they must make reasonable accommodations for those with medical exemptions.
