Florida stay-at-home order: What you can and cannot do now

TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis’ executive order mandating Floridians stay at home starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday contains exemptions for “essential services.” That list is extensive.

The order supersedes all local government shelter-in-place or stay home orders, although local governments can impose further restrictions as they deem appropriate.

Four of the “essential services” are explicitly defined in the order:

  • Attending religious services conducted in churches, synagogues and houses of worship
  • Participating in recreational activities (consistent with social distancing guidelines) such as walking, biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, running, or swimming
  • Taking care of pets
  • Caring for or otherwise assisting a loved one or friend.
