SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — Another battle in the war against COVID-19 has heated up.
Shelby County filed a federal lawsuit Thursday over the mask opt-out option in Tennessee schools.
The suit against Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee claims his executive order 84 is unlawful. That order gave parents the ability to opt their children out of the mask mandate for schools from the Shelby County Health Department.
The lawsuit wants Lee’s executive order to be revoked.
