Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: PASSPORT PENALTIES

, , Leave a comment

Starting this past Thursday, the state of Florida can now penalize businesses $5,000 per violation for any business which requires proof of vaccination for entry. In personal terms, what that means is that I cannot require anyone visiting our assisted-living communities to show whether they have been vaccinated before they enter and interact with our residents. While we all appreciate the long arm of government stepping in to prevent private enterprises from discriminating against individuals in violation of their constitutional rights, I question the constitutional basis of a law which prevents me from safeguarding the health and safety of our elders.
