Florida school districts can continue enforcing mask mandates, despite Gov. Ron DeSantis’ appeal, CNN reported on Wednesday.
Second Circuit Judge John Cooper ruled that Florida must stop enforcing the governor’s mask mandate ban, which means school districts in the state can continue to require masks while the case is appealed in a higher court, according to CNN.
This comes after Judge John Cooper ruled last month the governor did not have authority to issue a mask ban. But DeSantis appealed and his order stood while a higher court considered it.
