Orlando Airport issues a statement on Mask Mandate after DeSantis lifts all restrictions

The Orlando International Airport is quickly responding to the Florida Governor’s order to end COVID-19 restrictions.

The airport is going to maintain their mask requirement for travelers and guests passing through.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an order to end all COVID-19 restrictions in the state.

The bill also bans COVID-19 vaccine passports in the state. But the bill will invalidate all local emergency orders in relation to the pandemic. The order takes effect July 1, 2021, but the governor also signed an executive order to invalidate local emergency orders between now and July 1.

DeSantis clarified that this bill applies to government-level orders and businesses can still enact their own policies, including requiring face masks.

Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is more readily available, DeSantis expressed displeasure with the government keeping restrictions and issuing fines to businesses. He encourages people to get the vaccine. However, he says telling people they need to follow other restrictions even after being vaccinated undermines public confidence in the vaccines.

Keep in mind, businesses like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios can still make and enforce their own COVID-19 policies. Masks and social distancing are still required.
