News: Mandatory Quarantine Extended For Visitors Entering Florida from New York Tri-State Area

As previously shared, we’ve been following the mandatory quarantine of the New York Tri-State area closely. We have more news after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke at a news conference today (July 7).


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he is extending the executive order declaring a state of emergency for another 60 days. This order includes the mandatory quarantine for visitors entering Florida from the New York Tri-State area including New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

The executive order is shared here by Greg Angel on Twitter with MyNews13:

The following details of the order are shared on

Governor DeSantis directed all individuals entering the state of Florida from the New York Tri-State Area (Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York) to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter. This includes persons entering Florida by roadways.

  • This order was extended in Section 3 of Executive Order Number 20-139 (Effective on June 5th).
  • This Executive Order does not apply to individuals involved in commercial activity and students traveling for the purpose of academic work, internships, sports training and any other activity or program approved by the educational institution.
  • All persons isolating or quarantining will be responsible for all costs associated with their isolation or quarantine. This includes transportation, lodging, food, medical care and any other expenses to sustain the individual during their period of isolation or quarantine.

This executive order was scheduled to end today (July 7), but it now looks like there will be a 60 day extension (September 5).

As Walt Disney World begins phased reopening this Saturday (July 11), this extension will change plans for many Disney guests from the New York Tri-State Area including Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. Keep in mind, as we previously shared, there is also an order for a 14-day quarantine when you enter the Tri-State area from Florida and several other states.
