Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has moved the entire state into phase three of the COVID-19 recovery plan.  All restrictions against restaurants and businesses are removed by executive order [HERE] and all local mask ordinances are nullified by the same order.

♦ No COVID ordinance may forbid or impede any business from operating.

♦ No COVID ordinance may forbid restaurants to operate below 50% capacity. Any local ordinances against these operational thresholds are nullified.

The only places that I know of in town that are requiring masks is doctor’s offices and Wal-Mart since W-M made it mandatory at all of their stores nationwide.

      Regardless, “testing positive” means almost NOTHING. I’ve now seen a few different charts showing the odds of dying of the virus. Until you reach about 60 years old, and only then if you have “comorbidities”, are you much at risk at all. The odds of you dying from the virus — EVEN IF YOU HAVE TESTED POSITIVE — is less than 1 in 1,000,000. This whole thing has been a fraud from the start… from the masks, to the “social distancing”, and all the rest!!

    Last month, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered health care professionals across the state to provide the “full residential address and phone number, occupation and employer name, full work address and employer phone number as well as race and ethnicity” of all patients tested for Covid-19.

    On Monday, he upped the ante. The new order, obtained by Judicial Watch, mandates that doctors “collect and report whether a patient attends or works in a school and if so, the name and location of the school. This includes elementary, secondary, and post-secondary/higher education. It is also critical to list the patient’s local address if different from their permanent address.”

    Health care providers must report “within three hours.” Three hours! The price of non-compliance? “Civil penalties of up to $2,000 per day.”

    Retired Magistrate here: I am so jealous of those living in Florida with DeSantis as Governor. Here in Ohio we have RINO DeWine with a statewide mask mandate and an order to examine feces at various sewage treatment plants in Ohio. No, I am not kidding. This was not voted on by the Ohio Legislature; DeWine just did it.

    They examine the poop and look for markers (don’t know how they do this) and supposedly trace it back to a certain area so they can quarantine the entire area. DeWine is doing this in five large counties in Ohio and it is costing millions of dollars. DeWine really is a tyrant. He keeps threatening to close the State down again if the numbers go up.

    Well, of course the numbers are going up because there are testing sites everywhere. What he doesn’t talk about is hospitalizations are down and so are deaths. Plus, when President Trump came to Ohio about a month ago, DeWine was going to meet him but tested positive; took another test and it was negative. Doesn’t give a whole lot of confidence in the testing.

    If I took a test and it was positive I would be quarantined for two weeks, but not our governor; he got a do over.

        The details are not In yet. Please don’t jump to conclusions. Most likely what happened was not what the headline reads. She was most likely not arrested for not wearing a mask BUT arrested for criminal trespass and resisting arrest. Big difference.

        Remember that when a representative of the property owner/caretaker(in this case the school staff, principal, football coach, etc) tells the police “We want this person to comply with our requests/rules otherwise we want you to make them leave” well guess what happens.

        You either comply with the property owners/caretakers requests and rules or you leave. If you don’t leave then the police can arrest you and if they need to utilize force they are authorized to.

        Remember that you always fight your battle in the courtroom-Never on the street with the police. You will always lose. Always. You can however win in the courtroom.

        Having said all of that as an Ohio resident Mike DeWine owns this. He owns all of this. He owns the economic destruction. He owns everything that comes with this cold/flu Wuhan virus.

        I go everywhere without a mask. This past Tuesday my wife and I went to a 9th grade football game without a mask. I urge all Ohioans to not wear a mask. I urge you to question your government. They are not looking out for your interests.

        This woman will be convicted of trespass and resisting arrest but I sure as hell hope she Sues the school board. Up until police contact she had violated no laws. I think they will have to settle out of court to her is she takes legal action.

          “Comply with the property owners/caretakers”? It is public property/accommodation and no one has a right to inhibit your breathing by putting something over your face. As I’ve told all my law enforcement customers, when dealing with these issues “the left already hates you, don’t make the right hate you too”. I let them know that the politicians are putting them in the middle and nobody will have their backs, certainly not the politicians. Pretty soon, everybody will be calling for defunding.

          Fred,

          sorry, but I have to disagree.

          School boards can tightly control entry into school buildings, and even the front lawn or playgrounds, for obvious safety reasons.

          High school stadiums represent a special exception:

          1. They are public accommodations, i.e. they are, and must be open to anyone who wishes to use them for their constructed purpose, i.e. to anyone who wishes to watch football games (also track meets in this case). Behavioral rules can be imposed and enforced, such as prohibitions of drinking, drunkenness, rowdy behavior that disturbs others.

          2. This arrested mother had an incontrovertible good reason to attend the game–she wanted to watch her son, a member of an invited visiting team, play.

          In essence she had a more compelling reason to be in attendance than most other members of the public, such as local non-player-family-member fans of the home team.

          3. The governor issued a “mask mandate” that allowed outdoor activity with unmasked closer-than-6-foot proximity, for members of families only, which the arrestee appears to have complied with. She was sitting with her mother and children. There was also a man, who may have been her husband, brother, or BIL.

          All other persons sitting nearby in the stands were over 10 feet away from the arrestee’s group.

          4. It would require an act of the legislature, signed by the governor, to allow the school board to issue a superseding order requiring mask-wearing in the outdoor stadium for all attendees, and the act would have to authorize criminal trespassing charges and arrest for violation of the school board’s superseding order. I am confident that the legislature and governor did not pass such an act. Not 100% certain, but I’d bet on it, given even odds.

          There are statues in the Ohio Education and Criminal Codes that authorize school boards to define and enforce places, times and acts of criminal trespassing with respect to portions of school grounds that are rightfully reserved for students and staff’s usage, as well as authorized usage by students’ parents, vendors, contract maintenance and construction personnel, city utility workers et al. These statutes do not apply to general-public-accommodation stadia situated on school grounds, during defined periods and scheduled provisions of public accommodation.

          Certainly stadia may be closed to the public at other times, and subject to trespassing prohibitions and penalties, same as for city and county offices, privately-owned public-accomodating restaurants and shops, public-owned parks with curfew hours, and so forth.

          An important consideration is that the players were not required to wear masks. The under-age-18 attendees were not required to wear masks (obviously they were at very low Covid risk). But healthy adult attendees were not at Covid risk either. Moreoever teachers and other staff doing off-campus things were not required to wear masks if such were compliant with the governor’s mandate. Therefore any superseding rules applied to stadium attendance were arbitrary and capricious.

          The county prosecuting staff, consisting of two private-practice attorneys working part time as elected and hired county attorneys, working in a small town (7000 people) and county (29,000 population) are not generally expected to be experts in criminal law.

When Florida doesn’t have the huge spike in deaths then the other governors are left naked to their capricious diktats.

From one end of the store to the other I pickup a month’s long backlog of stuff while I’m there. There are many shoppers and everyone has a mask, everyone. I get a few looks. At the far end of the store I turn around to make my way back and check out. Instead of everyone wearing a mask,now I would say a good dozen people had theirs pulled down too. I don’t know if it was me specifically, but I removed mine in response to the old duffer and I wonder if others did in response to me. I say just do it … revolt …resist with a little healthy shot of civil disobedience. Do it and people will follow your lead.

      The only distinct markers seem to be the loss of smell and/or taste. If I experienced either one I would take it very seriously.

      Of course they’ve now thrown the kitchen sink into the list of symptoms they quiz you about (I got quizzed three times in two days). At my primary care the list included muscle aches. Everybody over 60 has muscle aches! The agenda to force everyone to test is nakedly obvious, don’t you think?

    Perfect timing for the election! Texas has got to follow. and other red states. Then the voters in the Blue states will realize they are being held hostage, and hopefully vote accordingly.!

    “No COVID ordinance may forbid restaurants to operate below 50% capacity. Any local ordinances against these operational thresholds are nullified.”

    This one seems to be worded pretty poorly (or I haven’t had enough coffee yet). I think what DeSantis wanted to say was that local tyrants couldn’t MANDATE that restaurants operate below 50% capacity.

    Florida also did not restrict the use of Hydroxychloroquine…so if you do suspect you’ve contracted covid, a call to the doc and $20 should give you peace of mind.

    Thank you Governor Desantis.
    Pinellas county commission was beginning to create reasons to mantain their mask madate after meeting the stated goals twice.

      Yea , they’re (leftists) looking for any little reason to keep the mask mandates . I’m in Pasco county and the health commissioner will keep the mask mandate because he said there was an increase in case possibly due with school children . It’s all BS . They lie lie lie . But , I will continue not to wear a face diaper .

    God gave us free will, freedom to choose, and no politicians or bureaucrats were anointed to deny us our freedoms, our free wills as given us by Jehovah God. Getting permission to act is admission that we are just stinkin’ slaves on the plantation state operated by commie/socialist masters/politicians and their overseers/judges/enforcers all in the alleged “land of the free and home of the brave.” How ironic is that?

    Well, Orange County businesses and organizations (YMCA) are NOT seeing this as a removal of face mask mandates because it’s not directly addressed. You may not get fined, legally but the mandate is still in force.

    I live in Virginia but have leased condo in Central Florida for year. I was in several places in Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island today. Most people are still in masks. I am heading back
    to Virginia in October to vote. Virginia’s governor will have the state locked down as long as he possibly can. I read he and wife have Cov19. I’ll bet that is bs.

  46. And I just relocated from Mexico Beach, Florida, after 5 1/2 years back to my home state of Georgia. Believe me, I didn’t want to! But after Hurricane Michael housing was even less affordable than before, so that door was closing. At least I can do my part in voting here in Georgia, for what it’s worth.

    Mask Nazi”s are doubling down in some businesses here in St Pete FL. As of Saturday, 9/27, yesterday afternoon,(two days after the Desantis EO), I was twice aggressively approached to wear a mask.(by employees). I left each business after telling them to stuff it. Every jackass in both places had their masks on.
    For a minute I wondered whether I had entered the Twilight Zone.
    I can’t find where St Pete or the county are trying to push back against Desantis.
    Amazingly, I had frequently been to each of these businesses since the mask mandate, without a mask, and was not bothered in the least.
    When the dictate was set, back in ??, if a business asked me to wear a mask, I would say health exception. And they would welcome me in. I have never worn a mask, and never will.
    Also, interestingly, I only had one fellow customer ask me where my mask was. It was at a Home Depot. I told him it was up his ass. That silenced him.
    This manufactured panic has been an eye opener for me. The ignorance and SHEEP mentality of the population as a whole is stunning.
    That said, now Ooooommmmmmmm.
