Judge blocks Florida governor’s mask mandate ban

At least 10 Florida school districts defied Mr DeSantis’ order by mandating that staff and students wear masks. These included its largest school district, Miami-Dade County, and Leon County, which includes the state capital of Tallahassee. In court on Friday, Mr Cooper said that while Mr DeSantis had argued that Florida law gives parents authority over their children’s health matters, it doesn’t extend to “reasonable” government public health actions. The judge also cited historical Florida Supreme Court cases that found that individual rights are limited when they have an impact on others.
