Tallahassee resident on school mask mandate debate: ‘I think it needs to be mandatory to wear the masks’

The debate on masks being worn in schools continues as Governor Ron DeSantis states his plans to ensure Florida public school students are mask-less this upcoming school despite both the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for these students to wear masks, considering kids 12 and are not yet vaccinated.
One Tallahassee resident weighed in on how he feels about the debate.
