St. Augustine (WTFF) – St. Johns County Commissioner Paul Waldron caught the coronavirus and went into septic shock after voting against a motion to mandate masks for county employees last week.
His daughter posted on Facebook on July 9 that Waldron “went into septic shock and has many organs struggling.”
“He is currently in the most critical of conditions,” she wrote. “I ask you not to doubt the power of prayer.”
Last week, the St. Johns Board of County Commissioners took up the issue of whether masks should be mandated countywide. One of the motions would mandate masks for county employees. It failed by a count of 3-2, with Paul Waldron voting against it. (Action News Jax)
