A state run by a governor who refuses to impose a state-wide mandate

Imposing a statewide covid-19 mandate in Florida would be harmful to the residents in most parts of Florida where there are low case and death counts.

Florida's C-19 issues are highly concentrated in just a few of Florida's 67 Counties.

1/3rd of Florida's counties have less than 10 deaths per county.

Only 15 of 67 Florida Counties have more than 100 deaths/ea..

The 3 most deadly counties by far are under heavy restrictions.


Statewide mandates would be like replacing the entire roof on your home because a few shingles cracked.

Unneccesary wide-sweeping government mandated shutdowns are harmful to people's freedoms, psychological well-being, personal finances, & the states economy.

Florida has had favorable results in covid-19 deaths-per-million population...better than 19 other states even tough Florida has the 2nd oldest population.

Florida's per capita results are ~5X better than NY and NJ, and even these deadly states do not have strict statewide mandates, but only some restrictions:

High taxes, riots, & exploding murder rates, are all contributing to the mass exodus from New York to Florida which New York Cuomo says is as "serious as a heart attack".

The exodus, which began shortly after the 911 terror attacks, and escalated due to the SALT tax laws, is now being fueled by the pandemic, protests, & crime (recent outbreak of murders in NYC).

Even Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's Mother left New York!

270 New Yorkers a day move from New York to Florida, and the rate is increasing.

Mayor DeBlasio said taxes must increase even more, and services cut deeper.

Make room Floridians.
NYC is a great city and will continue to be so unless the lack of policing, crazy policies and taxes drives the economic engine away. NYC has long been a place that is expensive and there are too many people just struggling to make it. It's really only great to live there if you're young and enjoy the lifestyle and/or you have a huge income or wealth to take advantage of the things it offers....this means the middle class and most retirees are better served leaving.

Just my opinion but DeBlasio has been far more incompetent than Como....not even close.

With the move to more working remotely, it just makes sense to move to a lower cost area as long as you are able to keep your income...forseeable and rational to see the exodus.
