A Hockessin mother has filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Court of Chancery challenging Gov. John Carney’s extension of the state’s school mask mandate.
The universal indoor mask mandate for the general public expired on Feb. 11 following a sharp decrease in cases since the height of the COVID-19 omicron variant surge.
Although that mandate was lifted, Carney extended the mask requirement in public and private K-12 schools and child care facilities until March 31.
Janice Lorrah, who has a 6-year-old daughter in first grade, believes the governor’s actions “violate state statutes and due process,” according to a press release shared Monday.
