Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday announced he would issue a stay-at-home order directing residents to severely limit contact with others as the state sees a swell of coronavirus cases and deaths.

The move represents a significant turn for DeSantis, who had for weeks resisted calls to issue a statewide stay-at-home directive like those that have rolled out in more than two dozen states, even as beach-goers and spring breakers crowded Florida's shores in large groups.

"I'm gonna be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or to conduct essential activities," DeSantis, a Republican, said during a press conference.

The order will go into effect Thursday at midnight and last 30 days, he said. The details of the order were not immediately available.
