Nasiville, Tennessee (WSMV)-The Tennessee Attorney General has just appealed a ruling on the Governor’s enforcement order on Maskmandate.
Governor Bill Lee has signed Enforcement Order 84. This will allow parents and guardians to “opt out of their children from the local masked obligations established by the school or health commission.”
The governor allows parents to opt out of their school mask obligations.
The judge’s court ruling stated that Williamson County’s parents could not opt out of their children’s mask obligations.
A federal judge’s ruling on Friday temporarily blocked the governor’s enforcement order to allow parents to opt out of the school’s mask order.
The complaint seeks to maintain a governor’s enforcement order that allows parents to opt out in Knox and Shelby counties, where another judge has banned Lee’s orders indefinitely.
“These orders hampered the governor’s executive authority to direct the state’s public health response in an emergency, so the office would challenge these decisions,” said Herbert H. Slateley III, Attorney General. Said in a statement on Monday.
A group of Williamson County parents filed a lawsuit in federal court to set aside the Maskmandate of the Williamson County School System.
