Florida relies heavily on the tourism industry, and the pandemic greatly affected travel to the state. However, as more people become vaccinated and travel increases again, the tourism industry is slowly returning to normal.
It’s no secret that tourism is a HUGE industry in the state of Florida.
With major theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, miles of beautiful beaches, and a host of other activities, Florida attracts visitors from all over the world. The coronavirus pandemic had a big impact on traveling last year, but just how badly did it hurt Florida? Today, we found out.
Some travelers may be able to visit Disney World a little easier now.
Florida has been under a state of emergency since March 9th due to the global health crisis. On March 24th, Governor Ron DeSantis signed an Executive Order mandating that all travelers from the New York Ti-State Area to Florida would be required to undergo a mandatory quarantine. On July 7th, the travel restriction was extended along with the state of emergency.
Now, though, Governor DeSantis has signed a new Executive Order that rescinds the mandatory quarantine for tri-state travelers.
