Across the country, freedom has been stripped from The People in the name of public health.
Not in Florida.
Today @GovRonDeSantis announced he will end any remaining unscientific restrictions – permanently.

According to an infographic, the proposed legislation would prevent schools and businesses from requiring students to wear masks, and it would also prevent employers from making decisions based on a person's vaccination status. It additionally states that the legislation would protect the freedom of speech and religious liberty of medical professionals.
During the press conference, DeSantis noted that despite the state's refusal to adopt the restrictions, some people still won't quit. He also stated that the state would make the protections permanent in the next legislative session.
In 2021, DeSantis signed legislation that banned school mask mandates and prevented private employers from implementing vaccine mandates. Due to the expiration of COVID-19 provisions in July, he promised to enact even more protections.
According to Joseph Ladapo, the Florida Surgeon General, he has personally witnessed the various threats that have been made against scientists. He noted that these types of positions are often correct. He urged all medical professionals to maintain their scientific integrity and engage in dialogue without fear of repercussions. The next legislative session of Florida begins on March 7.
