BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Centers For Disease Control on Tuesday is expected to tell Floridians to start wearing masks again indoors — even if they are vaccinated.
In a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, officials are believed to be prepared to tell everyone in high risk areas that it’s time to again mask-up. There was no immediate response from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ office. Governor DeSantis is opposed to mandatory masking and has often made comments questioning the seriousness of COVID-19, even though COVID has killed 38,670 Floridians.
The Palm Beach County School District is also not making any announcements at this point. The school district is prepared to start school with a “voluntary” masking policy. There is growing friction between parents who believe children must be masked — especially those too young for vaccines — and the school district which apparently is disinterested in fighting with other parents who believe COVID is fake.
Florida infection and death counts are again hitting record levels as the Delta variant takes hold and spreads in the region. As we reported yesterday, Kinsa’s “HealthWeather” system is now listing Florida as “Critical” for the spread of COVID-19.
