(WKMG) -- ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a news conference Monday anyone flying from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to Florida will be placed under a mandatory 14-day quarantine, saying again that he does not have plans to place the state under a shelter-in-place due to coronavirus.
DeSantis said he and other state officials worked to follow every guideline from the Centers for Disease Control and implemented a three-step strategy.
“The first was to stop the introduction of the virus into the state of Florida, number two, we had to protect the elderly,” DeSantis said. “Number three, we wanted to expand access to testing.”
