Iowa judge puts hold on school mask ban

Enforcement of Iowa’s ban on mask mandates in schools is on hold after a federal judge in Des Moines ruled that it creates an unfair risk for students with serious health conditions to attend class in-person.

The decision means school districts across the state can now issue universal mask requirements, as the CDC recommends, as long as the temporary order is in place

At least one district acted immediately on Monday. Hours after the ruling was made public, Des Moines Public Schools announced all students, staff and visitors must wear masks starting Wednesday. Thomas Ahart, the superintendent of the state’s largest school district, said in a statement that the court’s decision “to set aside Iowa’s ban on school districts being able to protect children in our care is welcome news.”
