Important COVID-19 Update for Travelers to Florida

| March 31, 2020

24/7 Checkpoints at I-95 at Florida/Georgia Line

As you may or may not know, Governor Ron DeSantis issued an Executive Order (20-86) on March 27th, 2020 requiring all travelers from areas with substantial community outbreaks entering the state of Florida to isolate for 14 days.

In accordance with the order, the Florida Department of Transportation has announced that effective immediately, all motorists traveling from such areas (including Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut), will be required to isolate for 14 days or the duration of their visit, whichever is shorter. Visitors from such areas should also be prepared for additional monitoring by DOH (see Executive Order 20-86 for exclusions).

Please be aware, upon entry to Florida, each traveler will be required to complete a traveler form, which includes contact information and trip details. If you’re traveling as a family, only one responsible member of the family is required to complete the form. Failure to complete these forms is a violation of Florida law. 

To enforce these orders, the Florida Highway Patrol has set up 24/7 checkpoints at I-95 at the George/Florida line. They have advised that motorists approaching these checkpoints should reduce their speed and follow the directions of law enforcement. Depending on the motorist’s origin, they’ll be asked to either proceed back to the interstate or pull aside for further screening.
