A federal lawsuit has been filed to challenge a mandate that children statewide are required to wear masks in school and on the bus.

The legal action is being taken by parents who claim the rights of their kids are being violated because the facial covering order causes them harm. The attorneys for the plaintiffs say some children have complained of health issues such as headaches, anxiety, and depression due to having a mask on. Governor Hochul said last month she was putting the masking guideline in place because she believes it's the best way to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
