Governor DeSantis signs executive order regarding flights from NYC area
 
Governor DeSantis signed an executive order today requiring anybody arriving by air from the NY/NJ area to undergo 2 weeks of self isolation. He clarified that self isolation doesn't mean you are going to stay with family. This is in response to the mass exodus from that area flying to Florida after the stay in place order was authorized by Governor Cuomo of NY. NY and NYC are the hotspot now for the virus.

I don't get it. If you don't want to be isolated, you just rent a car and drive to Florida? Seems like a huge loophole.

Now that's hilarious (sarcasm here). I really can't picture people from New York/New Jersey following our Governor's order to self isolate. And now what happens to us? We become an even greater hotspot. :mad::mad:

Thank you citizens of New York/New Jersey (more sarcasm)…….

And 3, 2, 1 go...….

LOL, Well, 200-400 can fit in a plane at once vs 4 or 5 in a car. Bit of a difference. Maybe he'll setup a pop-up testing center on the border or simply build a wall and have NY/NJ pay for it. I do like the idea though but the wall would be better and probably work just as well.. :D

:)I'm wondering with 20,000 cases of the virus in New York why all flights out aren't grounded or cancelled. I'll put this in my "what the hell do I know" file.:)

Gov Cuomo has great daily press conferences but the results are questionable. New York has approximately 15% percent of the US population and approximately 50% of the active cases of COVID-19. Gov DeSantis has made a good decision, but how do you enforce it?

Enforce it by keeping all locked on the plane for 2 weeks!

stan the man 03-24-2020 03:38 PM

Cuomo wants to be president.....New York not prepared...New York City not prepared... Blame it on somebody else. Should I have had lock down in place weeks ago, Have you ever been on a New York City Subway. Talk about being packed in like Sardines. Not my fault...

No, but they could do the 45 min test on everyone and quarantine the positives. It is unlikely that a group of people who left NY/NJ to get away from the stay at home order would come here and self isolate

Yes, a good idea. According to a live news report today at MCO they showed one flight unloading from NYC with 3 people on it. While it made for good publicity and was a great idea I think his order really won't be enforced much except maybe for a few tv stations to tape it as there is no real way to do it. Would take up way too much manpower and other resources considering the alleged 190 flights (I thought airlines cut most of their flights?).

Correct, no chance in that happening.

Agree ... Cuomo is great on style but not so much on results, and that's what counts.
