SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - During a press conference Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis said that Florida would not enforce a mandatory mask mandate in schools, despite a surge of the Delta Variant of COVID-19.

“Is it really comfortable? Is it really healthy for them to be muzzled and have their breathing obstructed all day long in school? I don’t think it is,” DeSantis said.

In the Suncoast, both Manatee and Sarasota County Schools have made masks optional for students and teachers.
