More School Mask Lawsuits on Both Sides of the Debate

Oct 16, 2021 | Covid-19

The controversy over masking in schools isn’t going away any time soon. Parents filed class action lawsuits recently in two states, on opposite sides of the mask debate.

In Wisconsin, a parent is suing her children’s school district for not requiring masks in schools. As a result, her children became infected with Covid-19. The parent wants school districts to implement the mitigation measures recommended by public health authorities. A second lawsuit in Wisconsin makes similar claims.

Meanwhile, in New York state, parents filed a complaint against the state challenging its order requiring masks in schools.
