TALLAHASSEE, FL- Wednesday, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody issued an advisory opinion in response to whether or not school districts may mandate masks in schools.
“It is my opinion that the District must comply with Rule 64DER21-12 and any other applicable authorities unless and until the judiciary declares them invalid,” Moody found.
The rule reads that students must be permitted to be opted out by a parent from any mask requirement in schools. “Students may wear masks or facial coverings as a mitigation measure; however. the school must allow for a parent or legal guardian of the student to opt-out the student from wearing a face covering or mask,” it reads.
No court has struck down the rule as unconstitutional. Currently, it is the stated opinion of the Florida government that school districts are breaking the law and must comply with the mask rule.
The advisory opinion comes after the activist Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper struck down DeSantis’ executive order prohibiting mask mandates in schools, which Florida’s Conservative Voice reported on August 28.
