Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) supports Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to reopen the state’s economy on September 25 after he consulted public health officials.

Governor DeSantis’ latest executive order bars local governments from enforcing restaurant and bar closures, and bans fines and fees tied to local COVID-19 compliance efforts. Fines attached to local COVID-19 regulations, like mask mandates, are now suspended in an effort to “get away from trying to penalize people.”

Governor DeSantis also held a virtual roundtable discussion with leading public health experts discussing COVID-19, statewide shutdowns, destructive mandates, herd immunity strategies, and the inaccuracies of PCR tests.

“Thanks to The New York Times, Americans now know that ‘positive case’ numbers are inflated, and therefore actual infection rates are not known because COVID-19 testing has been done incorrectly,” said Twila Brase, president and co-founder of CCHF.

“These inaccurate case numbers are being used to justify continued statewide economic shutdowns, which have devastating and lasting consequences on communities,” she continued.

  “Herd immunity is the goal. Those who are vulnerable, in this case the elderly, can be protected because other people are immune, even though they themselves were never immune and never were infected,” Kulldorff stated.

At the roundtable, Harvard professor Martin Kulldorff, who supported the lifting of restrictions, said herd immunity is a “natural phenomena” that will be reached “sooner or later.”
