Florida police on Tuesday forcibly removed a small group of moms refusing to wear masks at a county school board meeting about the potential extension of a mask mandate in schools. 

According to NBC’s Daytona Beach affiliate station, WESH, officials said that a group of moms refused to adhere to coronavirus guidelines requiring masks as the Volusia County School Board was preparing to discuss a mandatory mask policy that had been put in place in August. 

After multiple school board members and attorneys reportedly tried to convince the mothers to put on masks, shouting erupted, prompting calls to police. 

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that seven parents were banned from the property for one year as a result of the incident, which delayed Tuesday’s meeting by more than an hour. 

A video posted by the News-Journal showed one mom, Rachael Cohen, being pulled outside of the meeting room by a police officer as she attempted to remain inside. The group of moms had planned to discuss their complaints surrounding the county’s mandatory mask order at schools.
