Tallahassee businesses weigh in on mask debate June 16, 2020
On Tuesday, the Physicians for Social Responsibility Florida Chapter asked Governor Ron DeSantis to issue an Executive Order requiring face masks to be worn in public spaces.
The Florida Health Department reported a record 2,776 new cases of coronavirus Tuesday, marking the 14th day in a row of more than 1,000 new cases across the state.
This is why, Dr. Saff says, requiring masks is necessary to prevent the virus from spreading further.
“I think there’s a lot of coronavirus fatigue, so people are just saying the heck with it, I don’t want to wear a mask. I’m tired of it,” said Dr. Ronald Saff, member of the PSR. “Wearing a mask saves lives.”
