0

May 3, 2021, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (Ron DeSantis) signed Senate Act 2006, Which includes provisions to prevent commercial entities, government entities, and educational institutions from requiring customers or customers to provide any documents proving COVID-19 vaccination to access, enter or provide services to them. It is not; however, these entities and agencies should be restricted from developing screening programs consistent with guidelines issued by authoritative or controlling governments to protect public health.

The Florida Department of Health may impose a fine of not more than $5,000 for each violation of the above regulations.

These COVID-19 “passports” have become a hot topic across the United States. DeSantis (DeSantis) had previously issued an executive order prohibiting its use, but on April 29 before the meeting closed, Florida lawmakers voted to pass a bill to prohibit its use. The bill has now been signed into law. DeSantis firmly stated that allowing COVID-19 passports involves privacy issues.

His actions may have a major impact on the sports and tourism industries.British Football Association, Premier League, English Football League, Scottish Professional Football League and other major sports organizations publicly issue Support the use of COVID-19 passports. Many stadiums in the United States, including Oracle Park (home of the San Francisco Giants) and Citi Field (home of the New York Mets) Request now Digital vaccine verification.

Under the new Florida law, stadium operators cannot even consider this. Can companies require employees and customers to carry this type of COVID-19 passport? At least in Florida, the answer is obviously “no.” But what happens if a league like the National Basketball Association requires all teams to use this passport system that violates national laws? Is the constitutionality of the law itself likely to face challenges?
