7 School Boards Sue Over Youngkin Mask-Optional Order; Sen. Petersen Threatens Legislative Action

Seven school districts are suing Governor Glenn Youngkin over Executive Order Two, which

requires schools to allow parents to opt children out of mask mandates. The lawsuit challenges Youngkin’s authority over school boards and his ability to override Senate Bill 1303, which requires schools to follow CDC guidelines. Senator Chap Petersen warned that schools need to end mask mandates soon — or he’ll work to change Virginia law.
