    SUNSHINE: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis extends order BANNING local mask mandates, business closures and fines

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has pushed through a measure banning local cities from enforcing mask mandates amid sky-high statewide coronavirus infection rates, according to a report Wednesday.

    The measure, which extends an executive order DeSantis signed in September, prevents local governments from fining folks who fail to mask up — and from ordering restaurants to close without public health or economic data to justify the move, according to clickorlando.com.

    DeSantis did not comment on the extension, but he released a video saying Florida is ready to distribute COVID-19 vaccines once they are approved.

    “In recent days we’ve seen more breakthroughs in the fight of COVID-19,” DeSantis said. “If we can redouble our efforts until the vaccine is deployed, we’ll help safeguard the lives of thousands of Floridians.”
