DeSantis at a news conference Thursday, July 22 - Indian River State College in Fort Pierce:
"There's been talk about potentially people advocating at the federal level imposing compulsory masks on kids. We're not doing that in Florida, okay? We want kids to be able to be kids. We need them to be able to breathe. It's terribly uncomfortable for them to do it. There's not very much science behind it."
The governor said parents can equip their children to go back to school however they want, but stressed that there shouldn't be any mandate from the state or federal government to force face coverings. MORE
