In attack on CDC’s new school guidance, Florida governor signs order allowing parents to decide whether children mask up

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order to ensure that parents – and not officials – will decide whether pupils don masks at public schools, pushing back on recent CDC advice for K-12 students.

Signed on Friday, the new order calls on the Florida Departments of Health and Education to set rules that give parents the “freedom to choose whether their children wear masks.”

“The federal government has no right to tell parents that, in order for their kids to attend school in person, they must be forced to wear a mask all day, every day,” DeSantis declared as he inked the order, adding that it was only “prudent” to give parents the discretion for the health precautions their children needed to take.
