Pritzker: State Seeking to Overturn Ruling Against School Mask Mandate

(IOCI RADIO) – Gov. J.B. Pritzker said the state is moving “as quickly as possible” to get the recent ruling against his school mask mandate overturned.

Pritzker said the temporary restraining order is “out of step” with public health guidance and that masking is about protecting the public.

The governor urged schools not involved in the lawsuit to keep mask rules in place. He asked the Attorney General to aggressively appeal the order.
