Florida Appeals Court Allows DeSantis' Ban on Mask Mandates in Schools to Stand
On Friday, Florida's First District Court reinstated Gov. Ron DeSantis' (R) ban on mask mandates in schools.
The decision comes shortly after DeSantis' lawyers filed an emergency appeal in response to a judge's ruling, on Wednesday, that the state must end its mask ban.
Several state and local school districts have said that a mask mandate is necessary as Covid-19 cases surge.
The state previously threatened to withhold federal funding from school districts that required students to wear masks.
