DeSantis first broached the topic during an hourlong public health roundtable, where he met with four scientists who have denounced lockdowns and school closures as a way to prevent the spread of the deadly virus that causes COVID-19.
DeSantis made clear Thursday he has no intention of following Europe or Israel’s lead.
House Speaker Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor, said requiring passports isn’t necessary. “That’s totally and wholly unreasonable based on what’s happening out there in the world. I think that businesses have required a number of things that comply with CDC (federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines.
I don’t believe that is something that the CDC is even calling for,” Sprowls said. “I have not had a single business owner who has reached out to me and said we are in dire need of doing a COVID-19 vaccine passport.”DeSantis Rips Concept Of ‘COVID-19 Passports’ In Florida | Health News Florida
