In an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings had originally issued an official curfew
in Central Florida, from 11pm to 5am, shutting down all non-essential businesses until further notice during those hours. That same order was to be extended through Osceola County on the same night and was expected, in both counties, to last indefinitely, or “until terminated by executive order.”
But the order itself caused some confusion, with terms and expectations and enforcement leading to more questions than answers.
All pedestrian and vehicular movement, standing and parking, except for individuals commuting to and from places of employment, the provision of fire, police, emergency and hospital services, medical patients, utility repairs, state and local government employees providing services, and emergency calls by physicians within the above curfew area, are prohibited during curfew hours. Curfew hours during which such movement is prohibited shall be each day from 11 :00 P.M. until 5:00 A.M., commencing on Friday, March 20, 2020 until terminated by executive order.
Curfew is said to be going into effect now on Thursday night at 11pm, with more specific information to come.
