DeSantis called the idea of another round of lockdowns “insane” and “totally unacceptable.”
He also vowed that Florida was not going to be locked down again.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has rejected President Joe Biden’s warning that a new round of COVID-19 restrictions could be on the horizon if efforts to contain the virus fail, calling the prospect “insane.”
“Biden last night said that they may have to impose more lockdown-type policies in the future,” DeSantis said during the press conference. “I can tell ya, that ain’t happening in Florida. We are not going to let him lock down Florida. I know they talked about restricting travel of Floridians. That’s totally unacceptable, we’ve said that from the beginning.”
“To even contemplate doing any kind of lockdown, honestly it’s insane, so that’s not going to happen in the state of Florida,” he continued. “We like the fact that people have been able to work here… so we’re going to continue doing what works, but under no circumstances would we entertain doing anything of the sort.”
