Missouri Attorney General Sends Letters To Public Health Agencies And Schools Regarding Mandates

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sends letters today (Tuesday) to local public health agencies and school districts requiring them to stop enforcing any mask mandates, quarantine orders, or any other public health orders.

The letter is in response to the Cole County Circuit Court’s decision in the Robinson versus Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services case in which the court ruled that health orders, mask mandates, quarantine orders or similar orders issued under previous statutes were unconstitutional.


In an email to media outlets sent just before noon, Columbia Public Schools said they had not received a letter from the Attorney General but when they did, they would review it.
