Gov. J.B. Pritzker Files Lawsuit Seeking Face Mask Order for Illinois Schools

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has taken the unusual step of preemptively filing a lawsuit to ensure that school children wear face coverings when schools re-open.

The action filed late Thursday in county circuit court in Springfield is seeking a judge’s approval of the governor’s order that students use masks to reduce the chance of spreading the coronavirus.

Pritzker wants the matter settled quickly because three Illinois school organizations have informed the state that they believe the governor no long has authority to make such rules and they will be deciding their own safety guidelines.
