Children shouldn’t wear face masks in school, Florida’s governor says

By: | May 12, 2021

Children should not wear face masks in school.

That was the stern message from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, suggesting that local school districts should get rid of their mask mandates which have been in place for nearly a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These kids do not need to be wearing these masks, OK? I’m sorry, they don’t,” DeSantis said during a news conference at Christ the King Catholic School in Jacksonville. “We need to be able to let them be kids and let them act normally. And that’s what should be the case in the fall throughout the school year.”
