Daytona Beach, FL - If you've been in the Daytona Beach International Airport since Monday afternoon, you might wonder why they are not conducting coronavirus screenings. Director of Marketing & Customer Experience at the airport, Joanne Magley, said there's a reason for that.
Monday afternoon is when Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order, 20 80, that requires people flying into Florida airports from the New York Tri-State Area, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, to isolate for 14 days upon arrival.
The order charged the Florida Department of Health with coordinating between airport and law enforcement agencies. Magley said in an email that: "The Florida Department of Health is implementing the order and directing airports in this process. The county has been informed by the state that it is phasing in this screening process first at major airports.
Magley also said, "Our airport is ready to support the department of health screening activity as DAB is phased into the program by the state.
Flyers are posted at the arrival gate and baggage claim informing travelers of the executive order.
