Gov. Ron DeSantis held a news conference Friday morning in Jacksonville, at which time he announced that effective immediately, he is lifting restrictions on all youth activities, including summer camps and organized sports.

However, he said mayors and other local officials may pose certain restrictions on youth activities in their areas.

The Florida Department of Health will put up some best practices and frequently asked questions on its website, but Florida officials are leaving it to parents to decide if they feel comfortable in allowing their children to resume activities after months of staying at home, DeSantis said.

The governor said he trusts that coaches and youth activity organizers will take all preventative measures necessary to keep children safe amid the pandemic.
