Earlier today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis extended the state of emergency for another 60 days. This means that the Tri-State travel restrictions have been extended as well.
BlogMickey.com reached out to state officials who confirmed that the extension applies to the travel restrictions as well, and guests coming from the Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) are required to self-isolate for 14 days, or the duration of their stay in Florida, whichever is shorter. The Tri-State travel restrictions are tied to the state of emergency expiration, which was originally set to expire today. By extending the state of emergency, the travel restrictions are extended as well.
Disney has stated that guests who are under quarantine or isolation orders will not be allowed to visit Walt Disney World.
As a reminder, the quarantine now goes both ways, with New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey announcing that guests coming from Florida are required to self-quarantine for 14-days after they land in those states.
The extension of the state of emergency from Governor DeSantis comes at a time when positivity rates for COVID-19 are on the rise. Less than 24 hours before signing an extension for the state of emergency, Governor DeSantis said that he has no concerns about Walt Disney World reopening to the public.
