A doctor at a Florida hospital was fired for offering to sell medical letters to parents that would exempt their children from a recently-passed school mask mandate, according to a report on Wednesday.

Dr. Brian Warden promoted the offer in an online post following the mask directive for Leon County students from grades K-8 that went into effect Sunday amid a surge of cases in the Sunshine State, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

News of Warden’s offer spread across social media, leading to calls for him to be fired from his contracted position with Capital Regional Medical Center, where he was an emergency room physician.

“We act with absolute integrity in all that we do, and it is our expectation that providers behave in a way that is consistent with those values,” CRMC spokeswoman Rachel Stiles said in a statement to the Democrat.

“Immediately upon learning of this physician’s actions, we began the process of removing him from providing services to our hospital patients,” she said.
