FORT PIERCE, Fla. - As COVID-19 cases are again on the rise across the country, this time due to the delta variant, some are calling for masks to be made mandatory once more in school classrooms.
But Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says that won't happen in the Sunshine State."There's been talk about potentially people advocating at the federal level imposing compulsory masks on kids.
We're not doing that in Florida, OK?" DeSantis said during a Thursday press conference in Fort Pierce. "We need our kids to breathe."Earlier this week, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended universal masking in schools, regardless of vaccination status.Dr.
