Group Files Mask Lawsuit Against Gaylord Community Schools, Health Dept. of NW Michigan
“A group of parents upset over the mask policy in schools is taking their case to court.
The group “Let Them Breathe” has filed a lawsuit in Otsego County against Gaylord Community Schools, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan.
The health department issued a mask mandate for students this semester, ordering schools to adopt a mask policy for all grades K-12.
The suit argues that a school isn’t authorized by public health code to enforce a mask mandate or to suspend students who aren’t wearing masks.
9&10 News reached out to the health department and to Gaylord Community Schools. So far, neither are commenting on the suit.”
