The Pennsylvania State’s Supreme court struck down a state-wide mask mandate for schools.

The court’s ruling found that Democrat Governor Tom Wolf’s mask mandate, instituted by a bureaucrat named Alison Beam, was invalid because the governor lacked the authority to impose such a mandate under state law.
“The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Friday that Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam’s school mask mandate does not pass constitutional muster.
That decision affirmed the ruling of the lower court, which found both that there was no authority for the mandate and that any decisions were best left to schools,” ABC reported.
Despite this, there was one stubborn local doctor, who was still strongly in support of forcing kids to mask up.
“Dr Nancy Mimm, a public health expert at Harrisburg University, says she recommends kids still mask, no matter what their district decides.
“I wish I could tell you no, but not right now. I can’t tell you no. They really do need to continue to wear their masks,” Mimm said “I’m just as tired as everybody else about wearing a mask, but it’s really one of the strongest tools we have in our toolbox besides vaccines.
Rather, the decision of whether to impose them or not will now be left to the state’s schools.”
Given that many “educators” are leftists, it’s probably unlikely that the mandates will disappear anytime soon, only this time they’ll be coming from schools rather than the governor’s mansion.
