The Sunshine State has fiercely opposed federally imposed mandatory measures to counter the spread of COVID-19, and DeSantis has publicly spoken against lockdowns, mask mandates and compulsory vaccination.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Thursday that the state has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, challenging the federal mandate obliging COVID-19 vaccinations for all workers in companies with government contracts.
The lawsuit is targeting NASA, the agency's Administrator Bill Nelson, the Pentagon, and various White House officials from the Office of Management and Budget over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for government contractors.

"Because the government’s unlawful vaccine requirement seeks to interfere with Florida’s employment policies and threaten Florida with economic harm and the loss of federal contracts, the State seeks relief from this Court", the lawsuit reads.

As the Delta variant spread across the nation this summer, Florida was among the US states hit hardest by the virus. At the moment, however, the state ranks the lowest in terms of COVID-19 rates per capita. "Without mandates or lockdowns, COVID-19 cases in Florida have decreased 90% since August," DeSantis claimed.
