Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava statement on Governor's executive order

MIAMI ( May 03, 2021 )

Today, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava issued the following statement in response to Governor DeSantis's executive order suspending local emergency orders:

“I’m deeply concerned by this decision. We are still in a public health emergency and our economy has not fully rebounded from crisis. Fewer than half of our residents have been vaccinated, and we face a growing threat from variants. I urge our community to continue using common sense to prevent the spread of the virus and most importantly, to get vaccinated – our best and only path forward to truly put the pandemic behind us. And I urge the Governor to commit resources to helping to educate and persuade Floridians to get vaccinated, as we continue doing everything we can at the local level to make vaccines as accessible as possible and to motivate our community to take the shot.”
