Florida localities facing multiple lawsuits over face mask ordinances


In the era of coronavirus, the culture war regarding face masks remains ongoing.

As the incidence of new coronavirus cases increase, governors, mayors, and other leaders are implementing mandates for Americans to wear masks. Some require face coverings in both indoor and outdoor environments; others call for Americans to wear masks when social distancing is not possible.

An increasing number of Americans are tiring of face masks. Across the nation, police sheriffs are coming out and announcing that they will not enforce these mandates. Individuals who take issues with face mask ordinances are also bringing lawsuits in order to stop them.

Right now, several local governments in Florida are facing lawsuits over mandates for residents to “mask up.”

What to know about face mask lawsuits

Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-FL) is presently suing multiple cities and counties in the Sunshine State that are requiring masks. The Florida representative maintains that such mandates are not constitutional or legal. Likewise, Sabatini continues to warn about the danger of allowing government to control citizens’ bodies and faces.
