DeSantis pushes back on CDC's "baseless" no-sail order for cruise ships

DeSantis, during a round table meeting highlighting the importance of the cruise industry to Florida’s economy, called for the CDC to reevaluate its no-sail order, which the agency has stated should remain in place through November of this year.

“The cruise industry is essential to our state’s economy and keeping it shut down until November would be devastating to the men and women who rely on the cruise lines to provide for themselves and their families,” the Florida governor said. “I urge the CDC to immediately rescind this baseless no-sail order to allow Floridians in this industry to get back to work.”
