Damn, we’re just packed with Florida news this morning

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday ordered anyone arriving from Louisiana to self-quarantine like those from New York in a bid to blunt the coronavirus pandemic.

DeSantis said he is expanding his quarantine order to include Louisiana after officials in the lightly hit Panhandle worried people will flee New Orleans as the number of positive tests there climb. It is about a three-hour drive from New Orleans to Pensacola and DeSantis said the Florida Highway Patrol and sheriff’s deputies will set up checkpoints to screen cars from Louisiana.

    I’d rather have people from Louisiana than from the northeast; at least the Cajuns don’t bring liberalism with them

    I can’t believe they have checkpoints on every road into Florida. Back when I drove a truck there was a little known dirt road that skirted the swamp between FL and GA. If it wasn’t underwater at the mouth on either sides it could support an overloaded tractor trailer.

    I don’t like it but I don’t blame the governors of states trying to protect their own citizens from people from large cities, especially ones from places that ignored the early on advice of PDJT’s administration regarding visitors from out of country and large gatherings. regards, Alemaster

    Ban New Yorkers permanently. Anyone who lives here knows why.
