St. Louis mask mandate temporarily on hold; Kansas City sued

(AP) A judge has put St. Louis County’s new mask requirement on hold for at least two weeks.

Circuit Judge Ellen “Nellie” Ribaudo on Tuesday sided with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt in issuing a temporary restraining order of a mask mandate that was issued by St. Louis County health officials in July. The St. Louis County Council voted last week to rescind the mask order, but County Executive Sam Page insisted it was still in place.

Hours after that ruling, Schmitt filed a lawsuit against a new mask mandate in Kansas City, arguing that it was unreasonable government overreach.
