Florida gov: don't bring sick cruise passengers here

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has a message for cruise ships looking to dock in South Florida: We don't want your sick passengers.

We need our hospital beds for Floridians.

DeSantis urged cruise ship operators to work with the federal government to figure out a way to get medical staff out to ships before they dock, so as to not add pressure on Florida's medical resources.
