BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Louisiana residents can now travel to Florida.

Executive Order 20-139 from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody removes any restrictions on travel from Louisiana to the Sunshine State.

Visitors from Louisiana will not have to isolate or quarantine for 14 days when they arrive in Florida.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry appreciates what Governor DeSantis and General Moody did via the executive order.

“I thank Governor DeSantis and General Moody for not only recognizing the success our State has made slowing the spread of Coronavirus but also, and most especially, for removing the travel restrictions that had been placed on Louisiana travelers,” said General Landry. “Many Louisiana citizens travel to Florida to visit family, conduct business, or get much-needed vacations; today’s declaration helps make those movements a lot easier.”

There are only three states left on Florida’s travel restriction list.
