Des Moines, Iowa (AP) —Federal Judges Immediately Stop Enforcement of Law Passed in May Prohibiting Boards of Education to Wear Masks to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 I ordered
Judge Robert Pratt said in an order signed Monday that the law would significantly increase the risk of some children in good health infected with COVID-19.
Pratt said he would review data on the effectiveness of masks to reduce the spread of the virus and agree with the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics for wearing masks at school.
Several parents with children with various medical conditions have sued the state.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds issued the following statement in response to the ruling:
“Today, federal judges have unilaterally overturned state law, ignoring the decisions of the elected legislature and depriving parents of their ability to decide what is best for their children. We support state law and We will appeal and exercise all legal options necessary to uphold the rights and freedoms granted to US citizens protected by the Constitution, “said Governor Kim Reynolds.
