Orlando International Airport said that it expects about 90,000 passengers to pass through on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. That amount is about half the number from one year ago. Airport officials also add there are still flight restrictions for the European Union and parts of Brazil.
“As we approach Thanksgiving, we know this holiday will be different this year. But, listen to public health officials and follow their guidance,” Senator Scott said.
“Last year, people would start booking for Thanksgiving well in advance because it would be a heavy travel day. What we are looking at this year is people are waiting to see what’s happening in the destination,” MCO CEO Phil Brown said.
Florida reported 9,085 new coronavirus cases on Friday. The Centers for Disease Control issued guidelines that essentially ask Floridians to stay home.
