IMPORTANT STATEMENT

From Attorney Jennifer Englert.

On April 3, 2020, the state of Florida will go into lockdown. This is not very different from what we have already been doing in Orange and Osceola County.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he’s issuing an executive order that will direct “All Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or essential activities.”

With this order, Florida is joining more than 30 other states, Washington, D.C and Puerto Rico in ordering a lockdown. In total, the orders affect more than 85-percent of the U.S. population.

Lockdown means that we only travel if we have to. What it represents is us doing all that we can to help flatten the curve. As always, we are here to help you, and we are learning all that we can in the coming weeks. 

We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available, and we want to encourage you to stay safe, cautious, and healthy during this time.
