Judge Order Allows IA Schools To Mandate Masks

Federal Judge, Robert Pratt, on Monday, Ordered Iowa to immediately Halt Enforcement of a Law that Prevents School Boards from Ordering Masks to be Worn to help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19.

The Judge said he has looked at Data on the Effectiveness of Masks to Reduce the Spread of the Virus, and agrees with Recommendations from the CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Pratt said in an Order, signed Monday, that the Law Passed in May, substantially Increases the Risk of several Children with Health Conditions of Contracting Covid-19.

“Because Plaintiffs have shown that Iowa Code section 280.31’s ban on mask mandates in schools substantially increases their risk of contracting the virus that causes Covid-19 and that due to their various medical conditions they are at an increased risk of severe illness or death, Plaintiffs have demonstrated that an irreparable harm exists,” he wrote.

His Order said Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) and Iowa Department of Education Director, Ann Lebo (R), cannot Enforce the New Law banning Local School Districts from using their Discretion to Mandate Masks for Students, Staff, Teachers, and Visitors.
