Gov. DeSantis, with Surgeon General Ladapo, rolls out new COVID guidelines

A day after his state surgeon general was confirmed along party lines by the Florida Senate, Gov. Ron DeSantis Thursday announced a new statewide mask policy that he claims “bucks CDC policy.” 

The news release and tweet proclaiming the new guidelines seemed to coincide with his barnstorming speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) convention: Florida had “defeated Fauci-ism,” he said — a jab at Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to President Joseph Biden.

“People want to live freely in Florida without corporate masking creating a two-tier society, overbearing isolation for their children, and their health care practitioners having the freedom to follow science, not outdated and politicized guidance,” DeSantis tweeted.
