TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – COVID-19 is on a downward trend in ‘mandate free’ Florida. Despite the strict mask and vaccine mandates in states such as California and New York, their cases are not declining.
Florida’s seven day average is approximately 1,439 cases. Comparatively, California’s seven day average is 5,282 cases. New York’s seven day average is 5,782 cases. New York’s cases have had an upward trend since the end of October, and are rapidly increasing.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has raged against mask and vaccine mandates. This week, the Florida State House of Representatives and Senate passed anti-COVID-19 vaccine mandate legislation in a special session convened by DeSantis. This will keep Florida free and open, as DeSantis has welcomed those who are fleeing mandates from their home states.
Although DeSantis has received stark backlash for opposing the Biden-era vaccine mandates, Florida has much lower cases on a weekly and daily average than the most vaccinated and masked states.
