A judge in Tallahassee is expected to rule today on a lawsuit brought by parents challenging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ optional school mask mandate. DeSantis basically gave parents the option to make health decisions for their own children. However, many parents are concerned that no masks will lead to their children getting sick.
In Orlando yesterday, DeSantis said if the state loses, they will appeal.
DeSantis said the state Board of Education will soon be announcing penalties against the 10 school districts that are defying his parental opt out for masks including Palm Beach County.
