The State of Florida's Stay At Home Order

The Governor issued executive order 20-91 on April 1st, which placed a stay-at-home order over the entire state of Florida. It will close non-essential businesses and ask residents to stay inside, unless engaging in one of the few allowed activities. This order will become effective on April 3rd, 2020 at 12:01AM and will expire on April 30th, 2020. 

The order includes “Residential/Shelter Facilities and Services,” specifically identifying as essential to be:
  • Workers responsible for the leasing of residential properties to provide individuals and families with ready access to available housing.

  • Workers responsible for handling property management, maintenance, and related service calls who can coordinate the response to emergency “at-home” situations requiring immediate attention, as well as facilitate the reception of deliveries, mail, and other necessary services.

  • Workers performing housing construction related activities to ensure additional units can be made available to combat the nation’s existing housing supply shortage.

  • Workers supporting the construction of housing, including those supporting government functions related to the building and development process, such as inspections, permitting and plan review services that can be modified to protect the public health, but fundamentally should continue and serve the construction of housing (e.g., allow qualified private third-party inspections in case of government shutdown).

  • Executive Order No 20-91 states, "Senior citizens and individuals with a significant underlying medical condition (such as chronic lung disease, moderate-to-severe asthma, serious heart conditions, immunocompromised status, cancer, diabetes, severe obesity, renal failure and liver disease) shall stay at home and take all measures to limit the risk of exposure to COVID-19."
