This week, doctors representing Physicians for Social Responsibility endorsed the call for more local control, faulting DeSantis for not having ordered a statewide mask mandate.
“This is something that the leadership of the top of our state should have, from day one, said ‘We have a problem here. We’re preparing for it. We encourage you to wear masks, and if you don’t we’re going to mandate it’. And they didn’t do that,” Dr. Howard Kessler said.
