Governor Ron DeSantis issues STAY AT HOME ORDER


    In Governor DeSantis’ press conference early Wednesday afternoon, he issued Executive Order 20-91, requiring all persons in Florida to limit their movements and personal interactions outside of their home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.
    This Order is effective 12:01 a.m. on April 3, 2020. This Order shall expire on April 30, 2020 unless extended by subsequent order. Executive Order 20-68 (bars, restaurants) and Executive Order 20-71 (alcohol sales, restaurants) shall remain in effect through the duration of Executive Order 20-52, including any extensions.
    All ‘essential’ businesses will be allowed to remain open. This will include grocery, pharmacy, restaurants for take out only, news media, and medical facilities being allowed to maintain their schedules. Governor DeSantis also allowed, “At their discretion, such county administrators may determine additional “essential” retail and commercial establishments-or other institutions providing essential services-that shall not be subject to complete closure. No county or local authority may restrict or prohibit any “essential” service from performing a function allowed under this order.”
    Governor DeSantis in response to a question about construction workers eluded to the fact that they are outdoors and not in large groups and should be within the guidelines.
    Jackson County School Board Facilities Director Stuart Wiggins was asked if this order would affect the Marianna K-8 school, “I’m not sure.” He said they will have to look at the order once they receive it and make that decision at that time.
    Desiree Baggett who owns and operates A Wild Hair will be closing per the order except to shipped orders. They will offer free shipping to their customers.
