CPAC 2021 Moves To Florida To Evade Mask Mandates

Fox News reports:

The American Conservative Union says it will hold the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference in person amid the coronavirus pandemic. And for the first time ever, the largest and most influential annual gathering of conservatives that’s best known as CPAC, will be held far from the nation’s capital.

Fox News learned on Tuesday that the conference will be held the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Fla., from Feb. 25-28. Organizers tell Fox News that the event, which last year attracted nearly 20,000 people over its four days, will be held mostly indoors.

Florida is one of roughly a dozen states without a mask mandate amid the coronavirus. Orange Country, where CPAC will be held, does require masks be worn on public places. But Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida has prevented counties and cities from fining people for not wearing masks.
