Gov. DeSantis Extends Florida’s State of Emergency for 60 Days

By Amanda Roland

Yesterday, July 7, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that the state’s current state of emergency will be extended for 60 more days.

An original state of emergency came about in March when COVID-19 first started to hit Florida. The governor extended it once before in May, and with the new rise in COVID-19 cases in Florida, it is being extended once again for another 60 days.

Extending the state’s executive order allows the state to continue directing federal funds to necessary needs during the pandemic, as reported by Fox 13 Tampa Bay news.
