The latest state numbers show that known cases of the new coronavirus in Florida have doubled in the last four days. While much of the world is practicing social distancing and not leaving their homes unless necessary, the State of Florida is STILL requiring persons required to register as sex offenders to report IN PERSON to the county registration offices and Driver’s License offices to report changes that can easily be done over the phone.
No exceptions are being made for those who are sick, elderly, have compromised immune systems or who are otherwise at high risk of serious medical problems or even death if they are exposed to the virus. Even while many municipalities are issuing stay-at-home orders and Driver’s License offices have closed.
We need to call on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to issue an executive order suspending IN PERSON registration requirements while this emergency situation is pending and allow all required reporting to be made via phone, online or via mail.
