FLORIDA SHERIFF BANS FACE MASKS AMONG OFFICERS

A Florida sheriff ordered his officers not to wear face masks – and banned the safety gear from his office – even as the southern US state has hit record daily COVID-19 death tolls.

Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida’s Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday (Aug 11) to tell them of the new mask prohibition.

“My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn,” the email read.

The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals, or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.
