So what exactly does Gov. Ron DeSantis’ stay-at-home or “Safer At Home” order mean for Florida?

It defines what essential businesses and services remain open during the state’s COVID-19 response, and outlines what people are permitted to do outside of their homes if they practice social distancing.

The order goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and expires April 30, but that date is subject to change.

Keep in mind the stay-at-home order may be updated. As it stands now, you can:

Attend religious services;
Shop at grocery stores;
Get medications from pharmacies;
Fuel up at gas stations;
Wash clothes at laundromats;
Care for or assist a loved one or friend;
See the doctor, after calling ahead;
Take pets to the veterinarian, after calling ahead;
Go outside to walk, jog, fish, hunt, swim, bike and participate in other recreational activities as long as people don’t gather in groups of more than 10 and stay at least 6 feet apart.
You’re not allowed to:

Visit or work in a place that’s not an essential service;
Gather in groups of 10 or more people, or be closer than 6 feet to others;
Visit family or friends socially;
Visit someone in a nursing home, hospital or assisted living facility without contacting the service beforehand.
