Governor DeSantis announced earlier today that he would be suspending all local emergency orders related to COVID-19. Since the announcement, the Governor issued Executive Order 21-102, lifting all restrictions and mandates throughout the state effective immediately.
According to the order, "all local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates on individuals and businesses are hereby suspended." Furthermore, the order prohibits counties or municipalities from renewing existing emergency orders or enacting new ones that impose restrictions or mandates upon businesses or individuals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor attributes the decision to widespread vaccination of Florida residents and the wide availability of the COVID-19 vaccine statewide.
Please stay tuned as we consider the impact of this order on the Village of Palmetto Bay. We will continue to keep you informed of any updates.
