ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday that he issued an executive order prohibiting the “use of so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports.”
DeSantis announced on social media that the “Legislature is working on making permanent these protections for Floridians and I look forward to signing them into law soon.”
So far, there is no agreement on who would regulate such a passport.
The Biden administration said it would only offer guidance to the private sector if needed.
DeSantis said he will issue an emergency order this week to prevent Florida businesses from requiring a vaccine passport.
He will also ask the legislature to pass a permanent ban.
