Governor DeSantis Lifts All Local COVID-19 Orders Effective Immediately

South Florida politicians speaking out after the Governor announces he'll issue an order suspending all remaining local COVID-19 emergency orders. Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber says we are not out of the COVID-19 woods just yet with more than a dozen people on average dying in Miami-Dade daily and hundreds checking into local hospitals. He says this means he can no longer enforce Miami Beach's indoor mask mandate. Governor DeSantis says he doesn’t think local measures, which include mask mandates, are needed given the widespread availability of vaccine.
