Ron DeSantis: ‘PERMANENT protections from COVID MANDATES’

… said he’d introduce legislation to carry that out in Florida’s upcoming legislative session

… Earlier state-mandated measures were temporary and will expire on July 1

… “We want to make sure our state remains the freest state in these United States,”

… new legislation—likely to pass since Republicans control both houses of the legislature

… will permanently prohibit:

— COVID vaccine passports

— COVID vaccine and mask mandates in schools

— masking requirements in businesses

— employers hiring or firing based on COVID vaccination status

… It will further protect doctors’ First Amendment rights so that they won’t lose their jobs if they dissent from medical orthodoxy

… defend medical professionals from discrimination based on their religious views

… “When the world lost its mind, Florida was a refuge of sanity, serving strongly as freedom’s linchpin,”

… “These measures will ensure Florida remains this way”

… “When you go away from evidence-based medicine, and you start embracing ideology, you start to do things that aren’t in the public’s interest,”

… “No one should have to choose between a job they need and a shot they don’t want.”

… not wearing a mask and being able to breathe fresh air should be deemed a civil right
