(LifeSiteNews) As spectators flocked to Orlando’s Amway Center last Wednesday evening for the NBA game, they were required to download a “Health Pass” app upon arriving at the doors. The app tracks information about the user’s test history for COVID-19, as well as their vaccination status, to prove a clean bill of health before being allowed to take their seats.
Florida is currently one of the least restricted states amid ongoing COVID-related government lockdowns. There are no state-wide travel restrictions in place in Florida and no imposition on businesses to close, or individual Floridians to stop working, following a September 25 executive order from the state’s Republican Governor, Ron DeSantis. The order also revoked provisions that allowed fines or any other penalties to be levied for violations of local face mask orders.
