“There’s been talk about potentially people advocating at the federal level about imposing compulsory masks on kids. We’re not doing that in Florida, OK?
“At the end of the day, we’ve got to start putting our kids first. We’ve got to look out for their education. 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.
“I thank God — I’ve got a 3-year-old son. You’ve got people like Fauci saying that he should be muzzled, that you should be throwing masks on these 3-year-old kids. It’s totally unacceptable.” – Ron DeSantis, at a press conference held at a Fort Pierce school.
