About this Episode

The trial over the Governor's ban on mask mandates enters its fourth day. A group of parents is challenging Gov. Ron DeSantis’ prohibition on mask mandates, and they're asking the tough questions. They really didn't have answers.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A new poll from Quinnipiac shows 60% of Floridians support mask mandates, and two-thirds of them say masking up is about public health; only a third say is about individual freedom. But don't tell that to the Governor … he's still ticked off at the districts that opposed his emergency order.

— They talk about mandatory masks, but there's a loophole: All it takes is a note from the doctor. And a Tallahassee physician is banned from his hospital for offering notes for $50 apiece.

— DeSantis held another news conference to open a Regeneron treatment center, but his medical advisor says don't forget to get vaccinated.

— And finally, a Florida Man got his job back after being fired for using the N-word.
