Governor talks mask lawsuit out of Triad Schools

TROY, IL — A group of parents are suing a school district in southern Illinois over who has the right to issue a mask mandate. The suit, in the Triad district, hopes to overturn mask mandates in schools, arguing that the State Board of Education doesn’t have the right to issue one.

Governor JB Pritzker says groups like those are working against the best interests of everyone connected to a school.

The Triad school district is planning on fighting the lawsuit.
