Pritzker Files Lawsuit to Ensure Facemasks for School Children

CHICAGO (AP) – Governor J.B. Pritzker took an unusual step Thursday of preemptively filing a lawsuit to ensure school children wear face coverings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus when schools re-open in August.

The action filed late Thursday in Sangamon County Circuit Court seeks a judge’s approval of Pritzker’s order that school children wear facemasks to reduce the chance
