Judge Declines To Halt Enforcement Of Iowa Law On Mask Requirements

Mon 9-13-2021

Des Moines)--  A judge in Polk County District Court has declined to halt the enforcement of an Iowa law on mask requirements in public schools.  

Frances Parr of Council Bluffs had sued the state of Iowa, Governor Kim Reynolds, and several state officials. The suit was filed last month in Des Moines. Parr was seeking an order that would halt the enforcement of the law. She argued that it violates her constitutional rights. 

The judge determined there was no evidence any school board would immediately impose a mask mandate if the prohibition hadn’t been signed into law.
