Florida Judge Lifts School Mask-Mandate Ban, Rejects DeSantis’s Appeal

On Wednesday, a Florida judge allowed public schools to reimpose mandates for masks. This was in direct rejection of Ron DeSantis appeal against his previous ruling.
Second Circuit Judge John Cooper's order prohibits Florida from enforcing a mask-mandate ban. This allows school districts who defy DeSantis to continue the practice.

Cooper had earlier argued that DeSantis exceeded his authority by banning public institutions of implementing mask mandates. Wednesday's decision follows Cooper's earlier decision. According to Cooper's opinion, Florida law doesn't support a statewide order or any action that interferes with local school districts' constitutionally-required authority to ensure the safety and well-being of children. This is based on specific facts in each county.
