State of Emergency in Florida Extended Until July 7, 2020

Governor DeSantis just issued Executive Order Number 20-114. By this order, he extended the state of emergency that was declared throughout Florida on March 9, 2020, through Executive Order 20-52.  By law, a state of emergency may continue for only 60 days unless renewed.

Executive Order 20-114 extends the state of emergency until July 7, 2020. There are many implications to this order, including the empowerment of condominium and homeowner association to exercise emergency powers under Florida Statutes 718.1265 and 720.316, respectively.
