In press conference Friday, DeSantis reiterated that wearing masks should be voluntary.

"This has to be voluntary because the Constitution is not suspended just because there is a virus," he said. "You do have a right to protest. You have a right to go to religious service. All these other things."

The surge in COVID-19 cases prompted Apple to announce Friday that it was shuttering 11 of its stores in four states: Arizona, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
