Governor DeSantis issued EO 20-114, which extends the state of emergency in Florida initially established by EO 20-52 and set to expire today, May 8, 2020. Under Florida Statutes Section 252.36, an executive order is limited to 60 days unless renewed. EO 20-114 extends the state of emergency for an additional 60 days.
This extension is critical to condominium and homeowner’s associations which have enacted policies to discourage the spread of novel coronavirus through the use of their statutory emergency powers. Those powers are primarily predicated on the state of emergency being in effect.
