Missouri AG sues 36 school districts over mask mandates

Following through on his promise to take legal action against school districts that continue to impose mask mandates related to COVID-19, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has sued 36 districts across the state.

Schmitt points to an analysis done by the AGO using DHSS COVID-19 data in Missouri’s school districts from December 29, 2021 to January 11, 2022, which shows that mask mandates are ineffective in schools, and that non-masked districts fared the same or better than masked districts.

Schmitt says it’s time to give the power back to parents and families to make these decisions themselves. He also says forced masking of kids is ineffective but the evidence of psychological harm is mounting.
