A day after a state judge ruled against a ban on school masking policies, a Florida court upheld Governor Ron DeSantis’ ban on rules requiring face masks in state schools.
The action by Florida 1st District Court ruled shortly after Tallahasse District Court Judge John Cooper ruled to allow masks in schools and automatically removed the stay from the previous order.

The situation, Scott and DeSantis said, was done in order to allow state schools to meet masking obligations to state schools due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in some parts of the country due to the delta option.
The governor’s order allowed landlords to decide whether or not they wanted their children to wear masks at school, which was challenged by a group of tenants in favor of school mask mandates.
DeSantis, who is adamant about his position on renting masks in schools, said this week that “it’s very important to give them a chance to get out of the competition.”
School councils in 13 states in the state voted to cancel the order because they demanded masks because the viruses re-emerged, and they withheld their salaries. The Biden administration had promised federal funding for any county that lost money to wear the mask.
