Florida Coronavirus checkpoints screen motorists

March 30, 2020

Florida has opened highway checkpoints to screen for motorists entering the state from areas experiencing substantial community spread of coronavirus.

Motorists from Connecticut, Louisiana, New Jersey and New York will be required to isolate for 14 days upon entry to Florida or for the duration of their visit, whichever is shorter, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) said.

"Failure to complete the form and failure to follow any isolation or quarantine order from DOH are a violation of Florida law," it says.
