Minnesota judge rejects attempt to enforce school mask mandate

A Minnesota judge has rejected a request from concerned parents to make masks mandatory in all schools across the state.

Ramsey County District Judge Thomas Gilligan said the court was “seriously concerned” about the risks of COVID-19 to Minnesota’s children, but said in its decision late Tuesday that the court had government time Walz lacks the legal authority to order the issue of directions. The parents demanded.

Minnesota Public Radio reported that the lengthy legal challenge was unique in that it sought to compel the governor to declare a state of peace of emergency and comply with a mandate. In other states, governors who have tried to bar school districts from requiring the use of masks have been blocked by the courts.

Each Minnesota school district is implementing its own policy. Some require masks for all grades or for age groups where vaccination is not yet authorized, but others have made face coverings optional.

The plaintiffs’ attorney, the parent who advocates for Safe Schools, said the case may not be over.

“We knew this would be a difficult case, especially at the lower court level, but it is an extremely important matter,” said attorney Marshall Tanick. “And we are examining a number of options, including the possibility of an expedited or expedited appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court due to the urgency of this matter.”
