Today, the State of Florida withdrew its emergency application which was filed on July 23rd and thanked the Court for its consideration. On July 23, 2021, the State of Florida filed an emergency application to vacate the stay entered by the Eleventh Circuit in this case. However, soon after Florida’s filing to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit reversed course, vacating the stay and denying the government’s motion for such relief. The State therefore withdraws its application at this time and thanks the Court for its consideration.
As it stands based on Friday’s reversal, the CDC’s Conditional Sailing Order remains a set of non-binding recommendations for cruise companies operating out of Florida.
