This Week in South Florida: Dr. Steve Gallon and Laurie Rich Levinson

Last week public schools in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties adopted new mask policies.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Last week public schools in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties adopted new mask policies.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis enacted legislature that bans mandatory masking of students.

The two school districts defied that ban for a few weeks during the fall but eased off when the delta variant wave subsided.

Then came the highly contagious omicron variant.

Joining This Week in South Florida to discuss is Dr. Steve Gallon, a lifelong educator and Vice Chair of the Miami-Dade School Board, and Laurie Rich Levinson who is the Chair of the Broward School Board.

Their discussion with TWISF host Michael Putney can be seen at the top of this page.
