DeSantis Steps in After Biden's Mask Mandate for Children

Biden Targets CHILDREN With Latest Move – DeSantis Swoops In

(AmericanProsperity.com) – Governor Ron DeSantis has been one of the most prominent voices against COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns. The Florida leader has often criticized the Biden administration for its policies on mask and vaccine requirements. Now, the popular Republican is once again blasting President Biden for keeping a mask mandate in place for children in Head Start programs.

DeSantis’s office noted the White House’s ongoing requirement for toddlers to wear face coverings was unreasonable and could prove harmful to children. In an exclusive interview, Press Secretary Bryan Griffin told Fox News that DeSantis wouldn’t allow Biden to muzzle children in the Sunshine State. He called the White House’s mandate ridiculous and stated that it violates CDC’s guidelines.

Head Start programs, which the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) oversees, are still forcing children as young as 2 years old to wear masks. The CDC currently only recommends universal masking in areas with high COVID-19 transmission rates.

An HHS representative, who sent a statement to reporters at Fox News, mentioned that while the rule is still in place, the department is no longer actively enforcing it at this time. As the requirement technically remains in place, many Head Start program facilitators have opted to continue following the strict masking protocol anyway.
