SOUTH FLORIDA — Following Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an executive order suspending local crisis orders and limitations about the coronavirus pandemic Monday, leaders in South Florida — that was concealed hardest by the virus — reacted to the step, which was effective immediately.
“I am deeply worried by this choice. We’re still in a public health crisis and our market hasn’t fully rebounded from catastrophe. Greater than half of our inhabitants are vaccinated, and we face an increasing threat from versions,” she explained. “I urge our community to keep on using common sense to protect against the spread of this virus and most of all, to have vaccinated — our finest and only route forward to genuinely place the pandemic behind us”
The mayor also advocated DeSantis”to commit funds to assisting educate and convince Floridians to get vaccinated.”
Broward County Mayor Steve Geller stated he’s”worried” by the step but said the county”will stick to the sequence of the Senate if we agree with it or not,” the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
Geller stated DeSantis’ executive order”shows he appears to care about politics compared to public security in the state of Florida.”
The mayor added,”It’s my view that we need to be mindful and have particular restricted common-sense reactions so as to be certain the catastrophe remains under control, but the governor disagrees.”
Broward County’s legal group is reviewing the executive order to confirm that it complies with all state conditions, Geller said.
WPBF noted that Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said DeSantis’ arrangement is”an rash movement .”
Gelber explained,”I believe he chased the ball around the 10-yard line instead of simply waiting until we got this completely behind us”
“From today’s outbreak, evolving science has led to the struggle of protecting lives,” the announcement said. “It’s during these times national, local and state leaders must be arriving together. Rather, the Governor’s Executive Orders were a uncoordinated surprise to local partners on the front lines of this pandemic as well as their aftermath left confusion”
