U.S. judge says Florida can't ban cruise ship's 'vaccine passport' program

A U.S. judge has allowed Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. to demand that passengers show written proof of coronavirus vaccination before they board a ship, dealing a major blow to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis's effort to ban "vaccine passports."

In a preliminary ruling issued on Sunday, U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams in Miami said Norwegian would likely prevail on its argument that the "vaccine passport" ban, signed into law by DeSantis in May, jeopardizes public health and is an unconstitutional infringement on Norwegian's rights.

Hospitalizations have increased at record-breaking levels for six consecutive days, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

A record-breaking 23,903 new Covid-19 cases were reported in Florida on Friday, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This marks the third time this week that Florida has surpassed its record of new daily Covid-19 cases. The state first reported its highest one-day total on July 31 with 21,683 new cases. Then, on Thursday, at least 22,783 new daily cases were reported, CDC data shows.

"This is real. And it didn’t have to be this bad," Nikki Fried, Florida's commissioner of agriculture and consumer services, tweeted Saturday. "We need everyone to do their part — #GetVaccinatedNow & #MaskUp. If not for yourself, for your friends, family, and neighbors. For our kids. For our doctors & nurses. For Florida."

In the UK we would have grabbed the tail with our teeth, swung it around a bit, spattered it's skull on a brick wall and be wearing it as shoes before lunch.

Then skullfucked it's wife.

Congratulations to Boston on the win.

But shouldn't that be in the thread called "Why Boston is an awesome place to live"?

Since this is the thread for Florida, perhaps this would be more appropriate:

3 killed after SUV collides with huge bear
An investigation is underway into a tragic chain-reaction car accident in Florida. Police believe it started when the first vehicle hit a black bear. Julia Bagg from NBC’s affiliate in Miami reports.

Epic
Three Good Samaritans Killed Helping After Fla. Crash with Bear
KRISTINE GILL ON DEC 9, 2014
SOURCE: NAPLES DAILY NEWS, FLA.

Dec. 08--HENDRY COUNTY, Fla. -- More than a day after a Sunday evening crash involving a bear killed three people in Hendry County, authorities at the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation have nailed down the sequence of events that led to the deaths.

The chain-reaction crash began when a woman from the Big Cypress Community struck a bear while traveling southeast along Snake Road, said Gary Bitner, a spokesman for the Seminole Police Department. Caroline Billie was not injured in the crash. The impact did kill the bear, which Bitner estimated to weigh about 300 pounds. The collision also disabled Billie's SUV, which sat partially in the road and on the shoulder.

"There was a group, almost a convoy, of three vehicles traveling through the reservation who saw what happened and pulled over to offer assistance," Bitner said.

Eight people in the three vehicles got out to help Billie. That's when a fifth vehicle carrying four more individuals struck the disabled SUV and sideswiped a second vehicle. The second vehicle rolled over several times, striking seven of the good Samaritans and killing three of them at the scene.
