Third judge blocks Gov. Lee's mask opt out in schools

Gov. Bill Lee speaks to local media at the front of McConnell Elementary School on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021 in Hixson, Tenn., after presenting the school with the Governor's Civic Seal, an award given to schools and districts that prioritize teaching the nation's history and core values, according to Lee's office. Mothers of two children with serious illnesses asked a federal judge Monday, Aug. 30, 2021, to block enforcement of Lee's order allowing parents to opt out of coronavirus-related mask requirements in schools, arguing that it endangers kids with health conditions and hurts their ability to attend in-person classes.
