Florida temporarily bans vacation rentals

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered a temporary ban on new vacation rental bookings.

Private operators and companies such as VRBO and Airbnb are not permitted to accept new reservations for stays until after April 10.

The rule does not apply to hotels, motels or resorts.

Existing guests currently in a rental may complete their stay.

"If you are in one now, finish and go home," DeSantis said.

"Florida is experiencing an increase in individuals fleeing to Florida from out-of-state locations where 'shelter-in-place' orders are being implemented and community spread exists."

Renters violating the order could lose their license and face criminal charges.

Separately, Airbnb is offering guests full refunds for stays to April 14.

Florida has ordered a 14-day self-quarantine period for travel from some out-of-state locations including New York and Louisiana.
