JACKSONVILLE, Floride – After Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order on Monday to suspend all COVID-19 emergency orders issued by local governments in Florida, questions have arisen among many parents about the rules for masks and distance in their child’s school.

“Questions have arisen about the effects of Orders in Council EO-21-101, which are not effective until July 1, 2021, and EO-21-102, which is effective immediately,” a message released Tuesday by the Florida Department. of Education mentioned.

Executive decrees signed by the governor only affect local ordinances that have been created as part of the emergency promulgation process.

School districts like Duval County Public Schools that have imposed COVID-19 safety rules – such as mask requirements or social distancing guidelines – have done so as part of their normal political process.

Several school districts in Northeast Florida still have mask requirements – whether that’s throughout their school buildings or just in certain settings. Meanwhile, other districts “strongly encourage” the use of face masks (but not outright require their use), or leave the practice completely optional.

School district Mask requirement state

St. John’s Obligatory

Nassau Obligatory

The CDC’s latest recommendations on mask use and social distancing take vaccination into account.

The agency recently relaxed its guidelines on wearing masks outdoors, saying fully vaccinated Americans no longer need to cover their faces unless they are in a large crowd of strangers.
