Governor DeSantis has removed COVID-19 restrictions on all businesses in the state of Florida. Residents cannot be fined for not wearing face masks. However, businesses may refuse service to anyone not wearing a face mask if mandated in that county.


Federal Orders:
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued an order that requires face masks to be worn by all travelers while on public transportation (which includes all passengers and all personnel operating conveyances). People must wear masks that completely cover both the mouth and nose while awaiting, boarding, disembarking, or traveling on airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares as they are traveling into, within, or out of the United States and U.S. territories.

People must also wear masks while at transportation hubs (e.g., airports, bus or ferry terminals, train and subway stations, seaports) and other locations where people board public transportation in the United States and U.S. territories.
