The governor of the state, Ron DeSantis, also signed a law limiting the ability of district authorities to switch schools and businesses to remote operations.
“If someone believes that they need police control measures at this stage of the fight against the pandemic, then they do not believe in the effectiveness of the vaccine,” the governor said. DeSantis also signed a law that in the future will limit the ability of district authorities to switch schools and businesses to remote operation.
The state authorities make decisions on the introduction or removal of coronavirus restrictions in the United States. As the vaccination campaign progresses, the country begins to return to normal life gradually. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced plans to open fully all of the city’s businesses by July 1 last week. Previously, Texas, Mississippi, Wyoming, and Maryland had abandoned the mask regime and some other measures aimed at preventing the spread of infection. Since DeSantis belongs to Republicans who are skeptical about the mask regime and social isolation, the corresponding measures in Florida have not been observed in practice in the last few weeks – during the spring break in the United States. According to the federal Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), about 30% of Americans have already been fully vaccinated, and more than 43% have received the first dose of the vaccine.
