Governor Ron DeSantis immediately filed an appeal to a judge’s written ruling that struck down parental rights to opt their children out of a school mask mandate.

A Leon County judge also finally issued a critical written order late yesterday stating that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and state education officials cannot ban local school districts from enacting universal mask mandates for students and cannot punish them for doing so.

DeSantis immediately filed an appeal.
Also, businesses that require vaccine passports in Florida could be fined $5000 because vaccine passports were banned by a law passed by the legislature which says they create a two-tiered society.
