St. Louis mask mandate faces lawsuit from state official: 'It's not based on science'

Eric Schmitt, attorney general for the state of Missouri, has filed a lawsuit against the City of St. Louis for reinstating a mask mandate. The city’s mandate comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is set to recommend Tuesday that some vaccinated individuals resume wearing masks in certain situations to protect against COVID-19, reversing its earlier guidance that only unvaccinated individuals should wear face coverings.
