Arlington Judge Blocks Enforcement of Virginia Gov. Youngkin Mask Opt-Out Order

Eric Burk, The Star News Network

After oral arguments on Wednesday, Arlington County Circuit Court Judge Louise DiMatteo

granted a temporary injunction blocking enforcement of Governor Glenn Youngkin’s school mask mandate opt-out Executive Order Two. In the opinion issued Friday, DiMatteo declined to decide on the validity of Youngkin’s mask policy, but found that the lawsuit is likely to succeed on the merits, thanks to state law. Youngkin plans to appeal the injunction.
