Today @GovRonDeSantis was finally asked a question about local mandates, and his answer was incredibly disappointing.

At 23:50 here, transcript below: facebook.com/watch/?v=17769…

1/7
Q: "You've said on many occasions that you won't let any local government kick anybody out of their job or shut a business down. Yet here in Miami-Dade County, I'm a talk show host, and I hear from business owners and workers... saying because [we still have] a curfew,...

2/7
"they're getting kicked out of their jobs... after midnight. Why is that still being allowed to happen?"

A: "One, I'm not saying I agree with curfews... but at the same time, what I had to do was prevent anybody from closing a business or shutting an individual down,

3/7
"and that was the right decision... South Florida... is booming... you're not locked down... What I think the legislature should do is... just moving on from some of this emergency. Now, I have no emergency rules on anybody. The only emergency I use is...

4/7
"to get the reimbursement from FEMA... I think it's a legitimate issue, my order did not necessarily cover that... Stay tuned in terms of the legislature."

5/7
The governor's 9/25 order put limits on local governments in terms of individual mask mandates and business capacity, and he could easily issue a new order that doesn't allow curfews and doesn't allow businesses to be fined for mask violations.

6/7
The emergency order governing the state is HIS order, and it's up to him to fix it, not defer to the legislature. The legislature definitely needs to address emergency powers for the future, but the governor can and should fix this now.

7/7
And if anyone knows who that talk show host is, I'd like to thank him for asking the question.
The talk show host was @AndySlater

When I first started tracking COVID data at @AlachuaChronic1, I put the articles in the "Health" category. Having no idea that government would mandate behaviors that were recommended by the CDC, I thought people would use the data to make decisions about their own health.

1/9
The idea was that when cases went up, people would limit activities that exposed them to the virus - you know, like when "something is going around" in your community.

2/9
Under this common understanding that we ALL had a year ago, people would limit activities when cases are high and begin to resume them when cases fell.

Of course, what happened was that we were all mandated to limit activities.
