DeSantis to block mask mandates in schools

Source: Sarasota Herald-Tribune

TALLAHASSEE – Amid a COVID-19 surge in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis pledged Friday that he will block any effort to impose mask mandates, touting a forthcoming executive order to stop counties from requiring them in schools.

Days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance that everyone in K-12 schools should wear a mask regardless of their vaccination status, DeSantis was defiant at an appearance inside a Cape Coral restaurant.

“In Florida, there will be no lockdowns, there will be no school closures, there will be no restrictions and no mandates in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at the campaign-like rally, where no one appeared masked.

The Republican governor said that he will sign a Department of Education executive order prohibiting county school boards from requiring face coverings when students return to class in August.

Why is he so adamant about blocking masks? And why aren’t parents and officials fighting back or suing?

They're all about local control of schools until something might actually help people.

Maybe if we told them that masks block Critical Race Theory or germs that make you gay.

This isn’t a fucking political game. Face coverings are about the only way to mitigate the risk among kids.

I’d say this is one more example of Darwin in action, but the kids don’t deserve this shit.

The Villages condos lose their grandchildren to COVID maybe they’ll change their minds then.

It would be horrible for that to happen but they love Desantis and no amount of death will change their minds unless it got real close to the family. Even then I have my doubts.
