However, as of today, Louisiana residents can't travel to Florida without a two-week quarantine upon arrival, the website states:

All persons traveling to Florida from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut or Louisiana are required upon entry to Florida to self-isolate or self-quarantine for 14 days, or for the duration of their presence in the state, whichever is shorter.

The checkpoints do not apply to commercial drivers or health workers. Click here for more information.
