Florida Ban on Vaccine Passports

posted in: News, Travel 0

As you know, all the states of America have their own laws. A recent Florida law banned vaccination passports, sparking outrage.

What does this mean?

In Florida, it is not allowed to host Covid-based citizens on cruises, restaurants, and other crowded places. The state is of the opinion that everyone is free to decide whether to take the vaccine or not and does not want places like cruises to discriminate and only allow people with the Covid vaccine.

This was recently challenged by the Norwegian Cruise line in Federal Court.

American cruise line Norwegian Cruise Line has filed a petition in a US court to challenge a Florida law that prohibits passengers from requiring documentary proof of vaccinations, US media reported.

The company insists that the ban endangers the safety and health of passengers and crew.

Norwegian Cruise Line attorney Derek Shaffer told District Judge Kathleen Williams during a court hearing that providing passengers with a vaccination document is especially necessary at a time when Florida is experiencing skyrocketing coronavirus incidences and hospitalizations.

“What’s happening in Florida is scary. Florida is a hot spot. All we are trying to do is protect our employees and passengers,” said Shaffer.

In May, Governor Ron Desantis signed a law that prohibits companies and educational institutions from demanding proof of vaccination in exchange for providing services.

According to the governor, vaccination data is private information. The politician believes that no one has the right to demand the disclosure of such information. “It is completely unacceptable for departments or the private sector to impose on you the need to show proof of vaccination,” Desantis said.

Norwegian Cruise Line plans to launch its first post-coronavirus cruise from Florida on August 15, 2021.

Forbes notes that Florida was the first state to ban vaccination passports, although the authorities in South Dakota and Missouri have advocated such a ban.

Darina's work can be found in several international publications. Hello! I'm Darina Logvinova. My life is full of interesting events. And I want to share this with you. My passion is to travel. Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
