At a press conference in Tallahassee, Governor Ron DeSantis said he would issue an executive order banning what he called “vaccination passports” in Florida, which would prevent businesses from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccine for entry.

Here is video from that press conference.

“We don’t want to be in a situation where people are scared of being sued, just for doing normal things,” DeSantis said. “And so we worked very early on to look at to see ways that we could provide some certainty for both businesses, and healthcare providers. This was obviously a top priority for many of us up here. And I think that the legislature has been able to deliver today.”

With the Executive Order coming soon against vaccination passports a bill will still need to be passed to make the ban permanent.
