FL: Court reinstates ban on religious headgear mandates in government day-prisons

“A Florida appeals court ruled in favour of Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday (Sept 10), effectively reinstating his ban on mask mandates in the state’s public schools. The decision by the First District Court of Appeals (DCA) reverses a previous ruling by a Florida district court judge who found in a lawsuit brought by parents that the state did not have the authority to ban the face-covering mandates. ‘No surprise here — the 1st DCA has restored the right of parents to make the best decisions for their children,’ Mr DeSantis wrote on Twitter. ‘I will continue to fight for parents’ rights.'” (09/11/21)
