Two New Hampshire School Districts Sued Over Mask Mandates

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Two school districts in New Hampshire are facing lawsuits over their mask mandates for students.

Attorney Robert Fojo is representing a group of parents in the Bedford and Hollis-Brookline school districts who want to see those restrictions lifted.

Fojo says he's basing the lawsuit off of a New Hampshire law that limits schools from using "....Any physical restraint or containment technique that (a) obstructs a child's respiratory airway or impairs the child's breathing or respiratory capacity or restricts the movement required for normal breathing." Fojo is also one of the plaintiffs in the suit against the Bedford school district, where his children go.

"My children have experienced a lot of stress and anxiety over wearing masks," he said.

The Centers for Disease Control are continuing to recommend school children wear masks in educational settings through the end of the school year, as does the state's school reopening guidelines, which leave individual mask mandates up to the district.
