Florida Judge Sides with State on Mask Mandates, Against Local School Districts
Grant Holcomb, The Star News Network
A judge within the Florida Department of Administrative hearings ruled that the Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has the authority to make the rules for public school students regarding quarantines and mask mandates. The decision came after six Florida school districts sued the (DOH) for crafting its rules saying students would no longer be required to quarantine if exposed to COVID and remained asymptomatic. It also banned mask mandates.
