ILLINOIS (ECWd) –

Illinois Governor Pritzker has announced that starting Monday, February 28, 2022, there will be no mask mandates in Illinois schools.

He claims this comes on the heels of the CDC’s changing guidance.

Just hours prior to his announcement, the Illinois Supreme Court denied the state’s appeal of the Sangamon County Circuit Court’s TRO as moot, however, it did vacate the TRO based on the Appellate Court’s decision to moot the state’s appeal and cited case law stating when an appeal is rendered moot for certain reasons, all lower court orders are dismissed.

The Supreme Court sent all of it back to Sangamon County Circuit Court to hear the pending cases.

    Shameful that it took 2 years for the courts to review these illegal EO’s and the improper way that Pritzker used illegal administrative rule making to usurp citizens rights.

    The state AG wrote the appeal, he obviously is no friend of the citizens. A first year law student can recognize a moot appeal

    Shameful that anyone EVER wore a mask for a disease that never existed for a mandate that was NEVER even legal and had no teeth.

    Hope you’re satisfied Governor. Your masking policies will negatively effect children K through 6 socially and mentally for years – maybe forever.. On-line learning was a failure, leaving most Illinois children educationally deficient. Governor, you took bad science and penalized Illinois students to unconscionable levels. Your attempt at managing a “crisis” has a been a travesty.

      Look at the bright side, maybe enough of these kids were mentally stunted that you may get a Republican Governor once they are old enough to vote.
