TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Almost two years ago Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced that he will not be mandating the beaches in his state to close despite growing concerns over the international COVID-19 outbreak.
DeSantis called for the mayors to make their own decisions in regards to leaving their beaches open or closed.
“We’ve seen some big crowds on the west coast of Florida and I’ve had a chance to speak to mayors on both coast today,” DeSantis also remarked on the idea of locking down, according to a local NBC affiliate.
“If … they want to continue to [leave the beach open], we want them to have the freedom to do that, but we also want them to have the freedom to do more if they see fit.”
During this time, DeSantis was facing major backlash from the Democratic party.
Forward to February 2022, Many states including Massachusetts, Illinois, New York, Rhode Island, California, Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, Oregon who have supported mandates and lockdowns have now begun lifting mask mandates in some public places.
Left-wing media claims restrictions are lifting due to a ‘change in science’ when, in reality, data has consistently shown that lockdowns do not work and that COVID-19 will be endemic and seasonal.
