Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Signs Executive Order Prohibiting School Mask Mandates



Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order Friday to prohibit school districts from imposing mask-wearing requirements as students return to classes in August, according to the News Service of Florida.

The News Service of Florida said DeSantis scoffed at revised COVID-19 guidance from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and questioned the potential health effects of forcing students to wear masks for hours at a time and said parents should be allowed to decide whether their children use face coverings.

“If you have been listening to some of the murmurs going around, particularly in Washington lately, if you listen to some of the stuff that’s being percolated around the CDC, there’s a movement to try to impose more restrictions on the American people,” DeSantis said during an event at Two Meatballs in the Kitchen restaurant in Cape Coral. “And I just want to say in Florida, there will be no lockdowns. There will be no school closures. No mandates in the state of Florida.”

Masks are optional in Southwest Florida school districts. Broward County schools have announced a mandate and the CDC said everyone in the K-12 setting should be masked up.
