Orange County was the largest Central Florida county to have its mask mandate struck down by the governor on Monday, just days after releasing its step-by-step plan to phase out masks.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings told Channel 9 on Tuesday that he will speak with other county leaders about options moving forward.
Demings called the governor’s move “political” and told Channel 9 that county attorneys are exploring legal options for now.
